We are committed to maximizing the potential of every child. Education is a partnership. We know what children need to succeed in high school and college and we make sure that they have the skill set. We know how to strengthen their spiritual lives, as they become active members of the Church. We listen to parents and engage them in a vital partnership.

We ask you to journey with us. Make an Act of Faith, believe in the future of Holy Spirit School; be a people of Hope; help us build the future with your positive affirmations. Make an Act of Charity and Love by praying and contributing time, talent and treasure. We need you!

We, in turn, pledge to listen to our families so that we can know your needs, hopes, and dreams for elementary education. As we provide for those needs and actualize children’s successful outcomes, so shall we continue to flourish.

Dear Holy Spirit School Parents:

Welcome to another new school year!  I would like to introduce myself to those who are new to the school – my name is Kerry Mezzina and I am Holy Spirit’s School Mom.  I look forward to working with you to make our children’s school experience the best it can be.

Volunteering is one of the many things that make our school work.  Please understand, volunteering as a class parent is much more than just attending the class parties and field trips.  We ask that you be involved and participate in other activities at the school so that you are well informed as a class parent.  Class parents are very important to our school!

To be a class parent at Holy Spirit School the following requirements must be met:

  • be fingerprinted
  • attend Protecting God’s Children Workshop and submit certification*
  • sign a Diocesan Code of Conduct
  • attend ALL Home School meetings
  • assist with the responsibilities for your class

All of the following requirements MUST be met to participate as a class parent. Unfortunately, there will be NO EXCEPTIONS. This is very important. Please understand this helps keep consistency among all groups.

*Please visit  Virtus Online, and select Paterson Diocese for dates and locations for the Protecting God’s Children’s Workshop.  If you have any additional questions on the above requirements, please contact the school office 973-835-5680 or myself.

I am open to any suggestions or ideas, so please feel free to contact me – 973-248-6411 or via email at k2mezzina@yahoo.com any time!

Home-School Association
