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.
This week, our students donated 237 “Angel Boxes” to guests at the Hoboken Homeless Shelter and St. Matthew’s Lunchtime Ministry. Each student in the school created their own box filled it with hats, scarves, hand warmers, granola bars, candy canes, pocket angels, and inspirational bracelets. The boxes are also wrapped and decorated by the students. This year, students in Grades 2-8 worked on the boxes in their school “family” during their weekly Family Time sessions, while students in Nursery through Grade 1 created their boxes with their classmates. This schoolwide service project is warmly embraced by our students and helps get everyone in the spirit of the holidays.
Middle School Marketplace
Earlier this fall, our students participated in our annual Middle School Marketplace. Working in teams, the Middle School students designed a product for their peers, which they sold during the Marketplace. The project incorporated design-think, innovation, marketing and advertising, and collaboration. Grade 6 earned the most money per student during the event and selected the Sea Turtle Recovery, hosted at Turtle Back Zoo, to receive the donation of $767.99 in honor of All Saints' Birthday.
