Last week's letter was typed with an incorrect e-mail address for the Connors school project. What follows is the correct information:
In 1908, Public School No. 9 opened at the corner of Second and Monroe. This year, the school, now named in honor of former principal Thomas G. Connors, will celebrate its 100th anniversary.
We are planning a year of events to mark this milestone and would like members of the Hoboken community to help us celebrate. As a way to teach the current students, who range from pre-K to seventh grade, about the school's history, we are asking former students, teachers and staff to help recreate the past. We are looking for school memorabilia - such as report cards, photographs, books - that you could lend to us for a display case. We would also like to have volunteers come by and discuss the "good old days" at School 9 for an oral history project.
Throughout the year we will be opening our doors to the community for special events to commemorate Connors' centennial. We encourage you to take a tour of our beautiful building, which is now home to Hoboken's gifted and talented program (a collaboration with Johns Hopkins University) and the primary-level International Baccalaureate program.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-239-1737.
