Hoboken Charter School Helps Welcome Syrian Refugee Families to New Jersey

 

HOBOKEN, NJ – May 1, 2017

 

On Sunday, April 30, 2017, Middle School teacher Amanda Thiede personally delivered school supplies to two Syrian families in Elizabeth, NJ whose children are starting school this week for the first time in our country.  Over the last month, Hoboken Charter School Middle Schoolers have led efforts to raise funds for these families. Sixth grade students hosted a bake sale and collected school supplies. The families were extremely grateful and especially touched by the messages our sixth graders wrote in English and translated to Arabic. Funds raised will be donated to the Islamic Circle of North America.
