Launching Our New “School Family” Program
For me, and I bet for many of you, All Saints is more than just a school - it’s a community, and an extension of the family. At All Saints, we have always enjoyed strong bonds of affection for one another, and our tight-knit community and warmth is often cited by parents, teachers, students, alumni, and even prospective families after visiting our school. Coretta Scott King said “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” If such is the measurement of a community’s greatness, All Saints must indeed be considered great.
It seems like just moments ago, our children started the 2017-2018 school year. And now, here we are, already well into the first week of June, which is surely a crazy and exciting month for everyone. While the last day of school is only a week away, I’d like to remind our All Saints families that The Fund for All Saints campaign does continue through the end of the month. For those of you who have already made a gift to our amazing school - Thank You! And if you haven’t had the opportunity to contribute, please strongly consider joining this important effort prior to June 30th.
Please know that every gift counts. Regardless of size, each donation brings us that much closer to the ultimate goal of 100% parent participation. Every donation truly matters. If the teachers and staff of All Saints can achieve a participation rate of 100%, then we, as parents, should certainly step up and do the same!
Gifts to The Fund for All Saints can be made online or by check.
We recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open our Media Commons. The event was also livestreamed to every classroom, to the delight of the students.
Funded by the generosity of our guests at last year’s Spring Auction, the Media Commons will provide cutting-edge video technology and story telling skills that will prepare our students for the future. The room has been designed into a studio-classroom space and is equipped with new cameras, microphones, and software.
Our students, faculty, and staff are all excited to see the innovative work that will be produced through our Media Commons programming!
Eighth Annual Ecuador Exchange Program
Our eighth annual Ecuador Exchange Program kicked-off with the arrival of 19 students from our partner school, Colegio Menor, in Quito, Ecuador. During their ten-day trip to Hoboken, our guests were given a taste of American life, staying with our families, attending school, and touring the area with our students. The Ecuadorian students kicked off their visit by attending the Middle School Dance and experiencing Halloween in America. Highlights of their sightseeing to New York landmarks and museums included the Tenement Museum, One World Observatory, a Broadway show, Times Square, and the Staten Island Ferry. Perhaps the most meaningful part of the trip, however, was the students spent together, learning about each other’s cultures and lives. Our Eighth Grade Class now eagerly anticipates their adventure to Ecuador this spring!
