August 2022 Letter to Parents

August 15, 2022


Dear NDCA Family,


It is with a mixture of emotions that I write this letter. I have been at NDCA since we became an Academy in 2009, four years ago I was honored to become your principal.  Last week while I was on vacation, I was offered a promotion within the Diocese of Brooklyn to become District Superintendent.  I have accepted this position.  While I am sad that I will no longer be at NDCA I will help behind the scenes in any way that I can.  The Board and Diocese have already begun looking for my replacement.  I will leave everything in place for September to provide a smooth transition. 

I know that whoever replaces me is in good hands with the faculty, staff, and families at NDCA. You welcomed me with open arms and we worked together towards the greater good of the NDCA community.  NDCA runs like a well-oiled machine and will continue to do so.  I often called NDCA my family and I mean that in so many ways.  I hope to attend events and see people in the community.

In the upcoming days you will be receiving the back-to-school letter.  It is on hold while I wait for the updated Covid regulations, if there are any.  I am aware that many of you need to plan so here are important dates for you:

  • Wednesday, September 7, 2022 first day of school doors will open at 7:45, dismissal will be at 12:30. Kindergarten Orientation details to follow,
  • Thursday, September 8, 2022 second day of school dismissal at 3 p.m. Pre-K For All Orientation Details to follow
  • Friday, September 9, 2022 third day of school dismissal at 3 p.m. 3K For All Orientation details to follow.
  • I expect bus service to start September 12, 2022.
  • After school will begin the week of the 12th as well.

It has been my honor to be part of this nurturing community since 2009 and to see it grow and thrive into greatness.  I look forward to hearing all of the upcoming wonderful events and growth that will continue in my absence.  Continue doing great things and may God watch over the Notre Dame Catholic Academy community.


Much Love,

Jennifer DiLorenzo
