Letter from Father Nick

March 27, 2017

Dear ARCS Family,

I am sure you heard by now that Mrs. Schurtz has decided to step-down at the end of the school year. I take this opportunity, the first public one I have had, to thank her for the commitment, dedication and leadership that she has offered to Catholic Education, especially here at Assumption Regional Catholic School.

As this will be a new journey for her that will involve much transitioning, I ask you to keep her and her family in your prayers; for we know that God helps us through all of life’s stages – if we invite Him in.

I also ask that you pray for the new principal – whoever that may be – and for those involved with the selection process, which I would like to briefly explain.

The Catholic Schools Office of the Diocese oversees the procedure. I have been asked to assemble a five person Search Committee from the local community. Sr. Rose DiFluri from the Diocesan Office will be the facilitator for the group. I will join them for the first meeting to review the qualities and qualifications that the new principle must have in order to continue the great work and future vision that Mrs. Schurtz and the administration and faculty have instilled at ARCS. The Committee will handle the interview component of the process and make their recommendation to me and Ms. Mary Boyle, the Superintendent of our Catholic Schools.

I hope this helps you to know what will be happening, and I assure you that I will be as fully involved as possible in the choice for our next principal.

Thank you for your continued support for Mrs. Schurtz and for our ARCS community as we look forward to the next chapter of our School’s history.


Fr. Nick Dudo

Principal Mary Ellen Schurtz intention to retire as principal of Assumption Regional Catholic School

Dear Friends,

On March 1, 2017,  I formally notified Father Nick and the Superintendent of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Camden of my intention to retire as Principal at the end of this school year with the following letter:

Dear Father Nick,

It is with conflicting emotions that I ask you to accept this letter of my intention to retire as principal of Assumption Regional Catholic School on June 30, 2017.

The 26 years that I have spent as teacher, vice principal and principal of this school have been amazing. I truly believe that we have established a strong and vibrant educational environment and a building steeped in Catholic values.

I thank you for your support and guidance over the years and I pray that God continues to bless your endeavors and the endeavors of our learning community.

Yours in prayer,

I want to thank all of you for your support over the past nine years and I ask that you continue to support the new principal.

God bless you,

Mary Ellen Schurtz
