Reach higher, Hoboken!

Dear Editor:
We believe that the Hoboken District Public Schools have truly become child-centric centers of student achievement; we know, because our children are actually in the schools and thriving. We believe it is critical to maintain this course of improvement in the face of funding constraints. And we believe that the measure of a school is how far it goes in serving our community’s neediest children.
It is with these shared notions that we—Sheillah Dallara, Addys Velez and incumbent Tom Kluepfel—are running together for seats on the Hoboken Board of Education. We are and have been committed district parents, and have long-time records of service to public education, to district students, and to our community. As a team, we are eager to pitch in and continue the work already begun. We think that Hoboken voters deserve our fresh, positive and open approach.
And so we ask for the community’s support — and its votes — in entrusting us to serve our community and the children of our district at this important juncture. Our sole focus is and always will be on our district schools and its children, and on continuing to raise the high standards already in place.
Reach higher, Hoboken! Vote Column F, Rows 2, 4 and 6 to make our public schools even better. (And learn more about us on Facebook at ReachHigherHoboken)
