Superintendent's Daily Message - June 11, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,


I hope this message finds you well. Today was a special day. During the afternoon, Hoboken High School students and staff members had the privilege of speaking with New Jersey Commissioner of Education, Dr. Repollet. During the Zoom session, the group talked about the positive climate and culture at Hoboken High School, as well as issues surrounding social injustice and systemic racism. This evening, Hoboken High School held its Virtual Academic & Scholarship Awards Ceremony. In addition to the 17.6 million dollars in academic and athletic scholarships that the Class of 2020 has received from colleges and universities, another $40,000 in private scholarships were given out this evening from generous donors.


As the school year winds down, there are a number of school celebrations and ceremonies that I would like to share with you.
