BoE trustee Monica Stromwall: “Continue the progress”

The following was submitted by current BoE trustee Monica Stromwall on behalf of the Parents for Progress slate.

Dear Horsey,
Progress. Progress is what is
currently happening within the walls of our district schools and in the lives
of over 2,000 children that attend the Hoboken Public School District schools.
For this reason, and to keep the momentum going, we, Antonio Gray, Sharyn
Angley and Monica Stromwall are running for the Board of Education. We are
Parents for Progress and we would like the community of Hoboken to join us in
improving on and continuing the progress that has already been made these past
few years. Together we have many reasons why we are seeking election; seven of
which are our children that ALL attend Hoboken Public Schools. As parents,
actively involved community members and Hoboken Public School PTO members we
will continue to improve upon the progress. Education builds a strong community
and allows for future successes within our children’s lives.
We are excited by the improvement
of test scores in all of our schools and will continue to raise the bar and set
our expectations high for all of our students. Our students are eager to learn
and our professional staff will empower and foster a love of education for the
children that spend their days with them. We will continue to support and
expand the 14 National Advanced Proficient (AP) courses and electives at the
high school by utilizing the change of the 6th teaching period that
was agreed upon in the new contract that Monica Stromwall assisted in negotiating
this past summer. We are also pleased that so many children are able to utilize
the new tutoring time after school that was also part of the new teacher’s
contracts’. We will continue to support Response to Intervention (RTI) reading
program that has already shown success in the first and second grade children.
We are happy with so many of the programs that our children have the
opportunity to be a part of and we will look forward to the future.
One of the most important jobs a school board member can
undertake is the selection of a new superintendent that will continue the
progress and provide positive support and encouragement to the staff and
students. Antonio, Sharyn and Monica will seek the most qualified
superintendent to provide an excellent education for the children in Hoboken
public schools. We are proud to note that Hoboken Public School teacher Mr.
Mark Mautone, who teaches at Wallace Elementary in the new ABA/Special Needs
Center was selected as teacher of the year for the state of New Jersey. He
dedicates himself to the children that need the most and we congratulate him in
all his success! We are very lucky to have such an outstanding educator in our
We have dedicated our time and
energy working collaboratively to provide all of our students with positive
support to achieve success for all students! Please support the progress and
help build a better future for all our children; vote Tuesday, November 4th
for Antonio Gray (2), Sharyn Angley (3) and Monica Stromwall (5).
Educationally Yours,
Parents for Progress

Antonio Gray, Sharyn Angley and Monica Stromwall (Hoboken
Board of Education Trustee)
