Your Weekly School Update
September 8, 2017
"Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure." ~St. John Paul II
This week's adventures...
How exciting!
Our computer lab transformation is officially completed and our students will be able to take full advantage of this school improvement next week! Thanks to our 2017 Call of the Heart Donors, a new floor, all new furniture, 15 chrome books and a Sharp Aquos Board 70" Monitor have all been successfully installed. Students will be able to utilize the new space to its fullest potential to collaborate, experiment and investigate concepts in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Thank you again for attending Welcome Back Parent Night and for demonstrating your investment in our school, its mission, our goals and our new ventures!
Have a nice weekend and God bless-
Mrs. Russo

Thank you for your support of the NJHS's first act of service for our school community!

Together we raised $1000 for flood victims in Texas as a part of our red, white, and blue day!

All proceeds will go to Catholic Charities specifically for hurricane relief efforts.

Please keep those communities in prayer as they try to rebuild!
Let us gather together to pray, remember, and reflect on how we are called to build a future of justice, hope, and peace.

FLY on the WALL...
heard from the HALL
Heard from a middle school girl about her summer service project:
"When I saw the people smiling as I helped them, it was like God was saying,
"Nice job."
