Guest Blog: JOIN US FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN TO SUPPORT ALL SAINTS
Call your babysitters and buy your Spring Auction tickets today! We look forward to celebrating All Saints with you on Thursday, April 6 at the W Hoboken.
The Spring Auction is an entertaining night on the town; a chance to mingle with fellow parents, enjoy good food and drinks, and have a blast bidding against each other in both the silent and live auctions.
I had the pleasure of attending our Meet and Greet for newly-admitted families, and I was overwhelmed by a profound sense of appreciation for the wonderful people who make up our parent community. All Saints parents are a cut above the ordinary. They are caring, intentional, and thoughtful about their parenting. They are willing and gracious partners with our teachers. They are generous and support the school’s overall programming so that we can continue to develop and enrich our innovative and ambitious curriculum. They are concerned citizens who care about the well-being of all people around the world.
Over the past several months, as politics have heated up on both sides of the aisle, I have been so impressed with how respectful and tolerant our school community has been. I have heard some horror stories of children and adults behaving badly at other schools – pitting themselves against each other and negatively polarizing the community. I cannot tell you how proud and touched I am that we have experienced no such issues here. Someone suggested that the peace and tolerance we have enjoyed must be a reflection of the homogeneity of our school population. But I don’t believe that to be the case. I believe, rather, that our families embrace diversity and allow for a multiplicity of opinions. They are open and willing to listen to one another, celebrating their shared values and respecting their differences.
First Grade students did a wonderful job hosting the Waffle Inn, an annual tradition and First Grade milestone project. In preparation for the big day, students interviewed for various jobs such as cashier, chef, server, or bus person. On the day itself, the church was transformed into a festive, working restaurant, and parents, faculty, staff and students were treated to waffles with all the toppings, as well as service with a smile. This project ties into the First Grade financial literacy program, and raises funds (from tips) for the World Wildlife Fund.
Gearing Up for the All Saints Living History Museum!
Middle School students are hard at work getting ready to open the Annual Living History Museum, featuring characters from the Ancient world, the Medieval World, the founding of America and 20th Century America. Students dress up as a historical character of their choice, and create or give a speech about that person's life. Students in Grades 1-4 visit the Museum, and have the opportunity to interact with the various figures "on exhibit." Students are especially excited about a new feature in this year's museum - Grade 5 is featuring robotic props, such as a spinning pyramid.
