Thank you for your tremendous support for “Operation Happy Feet”. We collected 421 pairs of socks for the Veterans! On Monday, December 9th, the fifth graders along with Mr. Georger, and Miss Mourer delivered the wrapped packages to the VA Clinic. The students handed the gifts to the veterans waiting for their appointments. They were able to talk with the Veterans about their service to our country. The Veterans were eager to share their stories and very thankful for the gifts. We even sang Christmas carols together. Thanks again to our wonderful N.C.C.S. family for making this service project so successful. God Bless You All!
The faculty and staff would like to congratulate all of the students on their wonderful performances at the Christmas concert!!
We would also like to extend our congratulations to Miss C. for all of the hard work and time she contributes to making our concerts so beautiful! I think we can all agree that we are very thankful for her!!
Parents, guardians, family and friends that attended our concerts: you also deserve a round of applause for supporting our students! We can’t thank you enough.

A Message From Rev. Joseph Zalacca, Canonical Administrator
Dear Northern Chautauqua Catholic School Community,
I am excited to be chosen to serve as the Canonical Administrator of the Northern Chautauqua Catholic School.
My own Catholic school education at Holy Family in Leroy, St. Joe’s in Batavia, and Notre Dame in Batavia, was a major influence on my life and my vocation as a priest . It is my goal to continue to give the children of NCCS a wonderful Catholic school experience that will inspire their faith, challenge and support them academically, and nurture their personal development.
I invite you to join with me and the entire school community to work together to foster a school where we follow the teachings of Christ and His Church, every student is valued and treated with love and respect, everyone benefits from an emphasis on positive interactions, and school is fun, interesting and challenging and prepares our students for the future.
With your support and that of our Pastors, teachers and staff, we will build a school that is excellent, accessible, affordable and sustainable, providing the students of our community with a quality Catholic school education for many years to come.
Rev. Joseph A Zalacca
