Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope this letter finds you well and having enjoyed the mid-winter break. We look forward to tomorrow when we welcome back to campus all students in grades 10, 11, and 12 who opted for in-person instruction for the 3rd quarter. For our 9th grade class, we welcome Cohort B to campus. We continue to closely monitor the number of Covid cases impacting the Bergen Catholic community. Sadly, most recently, our basketball program has been sidelined with several positive cases. We’re working closely with Holy Name Medical Center, advising us on when these student-athletes can return to school and competition.
Over the break, our facilities team installed LED lighting in our hallways as part of an ongoing project to modernize the inside of our building. We also recently completed the planning phases for the renovations of two science labs – physics and chemistry. These labs are scheduled to be renovated this summer with a mid-August completion date. When finished, we will have successfully renovated and modernized all three science labs over a 24-month period. I am grateful to our school staff, Alumni Association, and Board of Directors for their continued help and guidance and look forward to future renovations and improvements.
As previously reported, we had a strong turnout at our drive-thru celebration for the Class of 2025 and look forward to welcoming new families to Bergen Catholic. Thank you for all your continued efforts in sharing our good news and exciting happenings with friends and neighbors. Our Parents’ Association is planning for several events, both virtual and in-person, and will be sending along more information shortly.
This is an exciting time to be part of Bergen Catholic, and the best is yet to come. Wishing you a good week ahead. May God bless you and your family.
