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.
In October, All Saints students participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and raised more than $1,750 for the organization. Coordinated by the Student Government Association, our schoolwide campaign also included a friendly competition. The class that raised the most money per student won a movie and popcorn party; Grade 2 students came out on top averaging $27.16 per student. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is just one of the many service-related activities our students enthusiastically support each year.
Middle School Explores City-Wide International Fair
Every October our Middle School students participate in the Month of the Young Adolescent (MOTYA) by evaluating a community need and presenting their findings at our Leadership Summit. During this year’s event, the students proposed a city-wide International Fair to celebrate all cultures.
During their presentation, students in Grades 5-8 spoke about the importance of honoring the diversity in Hoboken, learning from others, and ensuring that everyone feels represented in the community. The fair will showcase food, games, art, and more from a variety of cultures.
Two students addressed the Hoboken City Council in November asking for support for their International Fair. Mayor Bhalla then visited the Seventh Grade classes to further explore the proposal. We look forward to sharing continued plans for our International Festival!
