HoLa greatly depends on the help and support of parents and volunteers in order to keep our program operating successfully.
Simply put, if it wasn’t for our faithful supporters, HoLa would not exist as we know it. So, we publicly want to say thank you—for supporting the Annual Appeal this year and making a difference for our students, Hoboken and dual-language education.
We would like to recognize everyone who contributed this year. ¡Gracias, por su inversión en nuestros estudiantes, nuestra escuela y nuestra comunidad!
HoLa’s primary source of income is funding from the school districts. As a charter school, HoLa operates on less than one half of what the Hoboken school district provides to their zoned, district schools. This is an enormous difference, considering dual language schools are among the most expensive to staff and run. Our model requires that all of our teachers and almost all of our administration be bilingual, and have unique training. Valuable programs and critical aspects of what we do in the classroom such as books, the art and music curriculum, professional development, and scholarships for students in need would not be possible without your generosity. Every penny raised goes to enhancing the programming our students receive.
There are many different ways to volunteer at our school. Do you have a special talent or skill to offer? Let us know by emailing Friends of HoLa at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for volunteers to help organize or support events, serve as Class Parents, and more. Thank you for taking an active role in our community.
