Hoboken today has more kids than in recent years. Considering the fact that Hoboken and the surrounding area has so many different educational opportunities, sometimes kids don’t make the valuable connection with their peers next door.
In an effort to transcend the various schools and get to know kids in the community, a number of parents have worked together with Hoboken Family Alliance to host an All Schools Dance for 6th Graders this Friday, February 2 at the Elks Club (1005 Washington Street).
The event is open to ALL 6th Grade students city wide.
“Our goal is to have an event like this not just for 6th Graders, but for 7th, 8th and so on,” says co-organizer Lori Heidenry. “A lot of these kids only see each other on the athletic fields when they’re young, then they disconnect because they all go to various schools. We think it would be great to have an event for them that is more community oriented.”
