Once you attend Bergen Catholic, you are a Crusader for life. Your connection to Bergen transcends the doors of Oradell Avenue and follows you far beyond the borders of the state of New Jersey. In fact, our extensive network of over 11,000 alumni spans throughout the United States and dozens of countries around the world.
I hope this letter finds you well. Each school year seems to go by faster than the one before. It is hard to believe the first marking period is drawing to a close and the holiday season is directly in front of us. I am extremely grateful to all the families who participated in our Crusader Gala. Many were able to join the festivities, while others donated items, purchased raffle tickets, and participated from home. It was a successful night for Bergen Catholic and it was wonderful to gather and celebrate in person.
The next few months of school will be as busy as the last few. In early winter we welcome Advent, celebrate the Immaculate Conception, and rejoice in celebrating the birth of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. At school, we will celebrate with mass, recognize those students who earned the National Merit Awards, and celebrate with an evening of Academic Awards. Dates are being finalized and please stay tuned and look for an announcement in the coming weeks.
We strive to make sure all students, new and returning, are enjoying their experience at Bergen Catholic. We offer over 100 clubs and are looking to add more during the winter months. Please reach out to your son’s guidance counselor if he feels disconnected in any way. Taking full advantage of clubs and other extracurriculars presents a great opportunity for your son and strengthens the Brotherhood along the way.
Together, our past two Open Houses brought over 500 families to campus! Thank you for spreading the word about Bergen Catholic. As you know, word-of-mouth is one of our best resources and we appreciate your help in growing enrollment within our school. Over the next week, I will be off campus attending a professional obligation with Brother Rice High School in Chicago, Illinois. I will miss the opportunity to greet your sons in the morning and look forward to seeing them again upon my return to campus on Monday, November 15.
May God Bless you and your family.
