Mrs. Bathmann's Message
I am so grateful to all who helped make our Blue Ribbon celebration on November 11 such a memorable event. My heartfelt thanks goes to our pastor, PTA, parents, teachers, students, and all who shared this special moment in our school's history. During the past month, Saint Dominic School has been honored at the federal, state, and local levels for being recognized as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence! On November 8 in Washington, DC, the U.S Department of Education presented the school with an official plaque and flag to commemorate this great accomplishment. At our school's Thanksgiving Prayer Service on November 20, a Joint Legislative Resolution was presented by Assemblyman McGuckin, an alumnus of Saint Dominic's, and Assemblyman Wolfe who noted that Saint Dominic School stands as a beacon to the heights to which education can aspire. On the local level, Mayor Ducey and the Brick Township Council declared Wednesday, November 21, 2018 to be Saint Dominic National Blue Ribbon School Day by official proclamation! Our school will be honored once again on December 5 by the New Jersey Department of Education at the New Jersey State Board of Education Recognition Ceremony in Trenton. Congratulations to our entire Saint Dominic School Community!

Saint Dominic School Named a 2018 Blue Ribbon School
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recognized Saint Dominic School as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2018. We are one of just 49 non-public schools honored nationwide!

In a video message to the honorees on October 1, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said, "We recognize and honor your important work in preparing students for successful careers and meaningful lives. Congratulations on your students' accomplishments and for your extraordinary commitment to meeting their unique needs."

The coveted National Blue Ribbon Schools award celebrates our school's overall academic excellence and affirms the hard work of educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.

On November 7-8, the Secretary and the Department of Education will celebrate with 300 public and 49 private school honorees at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Our sincere gratitude is extended to the community of Saint Dominic's! We could not have achieved this prestigious honor without the hard work of our faculty, staff, and students, and the loving support of our school parents and parish family.

We hope you will help us celebrate this achievement by sharing the news on social media. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and share our posts with your networks. Please use our hashtags: #BlueJayPride and #ILoveSDS
