Becoming an IB School: How long will it take?
More than 30 parents gathered this week for a discussion about our school’s application to become an IB Middle Years Programme School, the first in a series of Coffee Chats we will be hosting over the course of the year. Two of the most burning questions were 1) How long will the process take, and 2) What will change for my child?
Why We Are Becoming an IB Middle Years Programme School
At All Saints, we believe the aim of education is to change the world. We want our students to be able to make a positive difference – not at some point in the future, but now. Even students as young as three years old can be empowered to make a difference, and can experience the powerful connection between what we’re learning, and why we’re learning it.
All Saints is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a series of Story Hours in the month of March. All Saints Teachers will read stories and lead children in craft projects.
The Story Hours are free of charge and open to children age 2-5 years (and their parents/guardians). They will take place at our Clinton Street location from 9am – 10am on March 3, 10, 17, and 24. We ask that you RSVP to email@example.com.
Take a break from your Saturday routine and join us at the All Saints Story Hour!
Henrietta Takes Over All Saints (and Beyond)
During this year’s Reading Olympics, the entire school read Daniel Pinkwater's The Hoboken Chicken Emergency, which features a chicken named Henrietta. Throughout the past two months, “Henrietta” has been spotted all over the school – playing basketball, taking over the front desk, dancing with students, and roaming the hall – delighting the entire student body with her surprise visits.
At the conclusion of Reading Olympics, each student created their own “flat” Henrietta to take with them on their February break escapades. Henrietta has traveled near and far – going skiing, flying to other countries, playing with friends in Hoboken, and so much more! Check out our social media pages (@ASEDSHoboken) for pictures of her many adventures this winter!
This won’t be the last of Henrietta’s time at All Saints. Our annual Spring Play is an adaptation of The Hoboken Chicken Emergency!
Basketball Season Has Begun
The 2018 All Saints basketball season is well underway. We have 60 students in Grades 3-8 playing on our five co-ed teams. Our students represent All Saints in Hoboken’s Small Fry, Middle, and Grammar divisions. All Saints players develop technical skills in weekly practices, led by Mr. Mimms and our volunteer coaches, and teamwork is fostered when they play against other Hoboken schools each week. Last year, our Middle division won the league championship, and all our players are working hard for a repeat this year! The season runs through March and fans are always welcome at the games.
