Virtual Holiday Florals Benefiting the Hurley School

Register by 12/2

In case you missed the deadline to sign up, we have added another holiday fundraising event on December 16 at 6:30pmET.

Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School invites you to get in the holiday spirit and safely bring our community together for a virtual fundraiser to benefit the Hurley School. During these difficult and unprecedented times, your participation and donation will help make a significant impact to the students of our school.  

Join us in support of The Hurley School, just in time for the holidays! Receive an abundance of farm-fresh flowers and a vase delivered right to your door, no matter where you are in the USA. Then join your Alice’s Table hosts ‘Two Blooms’ — Melissa Estep and Robin Kornett — via Zoom to create your fabulous arrangement, learning lots of tips and tricks along the way! All you’ll need are a pair of scissors or clippers, and water.

Enjoy all the fun of an Alice’s Table event right from home — we can’t wait to see you at our virtual table!

**All proceeds will go directly to NPHS! Thank you for your support!**

We are working hard to deliver flowers directly from our farm to your door, due to this all purchases are final and will not be eligible for refunds or transfers.

Welcome Back to School Year 2020/21

Dear Hurley Families,

On behalf of the Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School, we want to welcome you to our community.

NPHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that acts as the development arm of the Hurley School. We are current parents, community members, and volunteers who believe in bilingual public education and see the need to enhance the academic experience of all students at the Hurley. Our mission is to bridge the gaps in funding that the Hurley receives from the Boston Public School System.  The money we raise will pay for reading specialists, music education, classroom materials, social/emotional support programs, and more.  We have plans to invest in the school’s infrastructure (including the auditorium, playground and STEM rooms) as well as technology.

NPHS raises money through an annual appeal, and through fundraising events.  Due to COVID, this year will look different as we rely more on virtual events and experiences.  However, our mission remains the same: to raise funds to bridge the gap between the BPS budget and what Hurley students need and deserve during this time.  We have already helped provide paper books and other materials so that our students can start the school year off with supplies that will enhance their remote learning.  We will continue to support the school in other ways as we all navigate this challenging time.

We would love to get more people involved with NPHS.  Every parent has something valuable to contribute, whether it is time, talent, or treasure, and all of our children will benefit from this generosity.

Our first meeting of the year will be held on Wednesday, September 30th at 7:30 PM.  Please join us to learn more about NPHS! (Minutes are available on our Get Involved Page)

As the new co-presidents of NPHS, we look forward to working with you to make this another great school year!

Bienvenidos a Nuevo Año Escolar

Queridas familias de La Escuela Hurley,


Por parte de La Asociación de Padres de La Escuela Hurley queremos darles la bienvenida a nuestra comunidad.
NPHS es una asociación sin propósito de lucro 501(c)(3) que actúa como brazo de apoyo para la escuela.
Somos padres de familia, miembros de la comunidad y voluntarios que creemos en la educación pública bilingüe y vemos la necesidad de mejorar la experiencia académica de todos los estudiantes de la Hurley.
Nuestra misión es el cubrir la falta de fondos en la financiación que la escuela recibe de BPS (Escuelas Publicas de Boston).
El dinero que recaudamos es utilizado para cubrir los gastos de especialistas en lectura, clases de música, materiales para los salones de clase, programas de soporte social/emocional y mucho más. Tenemos planes de invertir en la infraestructura de la escuela (incluyendo el auditorio, parque y salón de STEM) así como en tecnología.
NPHS obtiene sus fondos  por medio de la recaudación anual y eventos de recaudación de fondos que hace durante el año. Debido a COVID, este año será muy diferente ya que los eventos serán virtuales. Sin embargo, nuestro objetivo continúa siendo el mismo: obtener fondos suficientes para cubrir los gastos que el presupuesto de BPS no logra y asegurarnos que todos los estudiantes de Hurley tienen lo que necesitan, ya comenzamos este año escolar ayudando a proveer los materiales que los estudiantes necesitan para mejorar su aprendizaje remoto. Seguiremos apoyando a la escuela en cualquier forma especialmente ahora que estamos pasando por tiempos difíciles.
Nos cantaría que mas personas formaran parte de NPHS. Cada Padre de familia tiene algo importante que aportar ya sea tiempo, talento…y todos y cada uno de nuestros niños se beneficiará de su generosidad.
Nuestra primera reunión de este año será el Miércoles 30 de Septiembre a las 7:30 pm. Por favor acompáñanos para que conozcas mas de NPHS. 
Como nuevo co-presidente de NPHS, esperamos poder trabajar juntos para hacer de este año escolar todo un éxito!

End of School Year 19/20 Letter

Dear Friends of the Hurley,

As the school year wraps up, I wanted to reach out and thank you for your support of Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School.  When students, teachers, and families gathered on the turf field last September, the school year began with joy, hugs, and a procession into the building.  Nobody would have predicted that, come June, our community would be saying goodbye to each other via Zoom.  One thing that hasn’t changed is the joy and excitement we see in our kids, and in their teachers, when they come together.  Even virtually, the spirt of the Hurley is strong, and I am grateful to be part of this community.

While the year wasn’t normal, the role NPHS played for the Hurley was as important as ever.  Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School, an independent  501c3 whose mission is to bridge the gap between what Boston Public School budgets can provide and what our students deserve, funded important initiatives that made the school stronger.  These included reading interventionists that worked with small groups of students, and a residency by a dual language music teacher.  When the pandemic hit in March, NPHS offered its support to Principal Verano, and funded emergency food and supplies for our most vulnerable families.

As our fiscal year wraps up on June 30th, I am writing one last time to ask that you consider a gift to the Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School.  Our signature spring fundraiser, TropiCaliainete, was canceled, so we are appealing to donors to consider a gift so we can continue to offer our support to the school.

While we don’t know what school will look this fall, we do know that the 350 children who attend the Hurley depend on our support, and deserve an excellent  bilingual education in a school that sparks joy.  NPHS had told Princiapl Verano that we will help with interventionists, arts education, training and materials for remote learning (if necessary), social /emotional support for students and families, and more.  In order to make the happen, we need your support.  Please consider a gift today.

I hope that you and your family have a healthy, happy summer.

Alicia Erickson
Co-President, Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School

April 25 – Break a Sweat with Barre3 in Support of the Hurley School

Dear Friends of the Hurley School,

We hope that you and your families are staying healthy and in good spirits during these unprecedented times.

Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School (NPHS) is committed to helping the most vulnerable in our school community. More than 70% of Hurley students are considered high need. In the past few weeks, NPHS has funded supplemental food/groceries for more than 20 Hurley families, and has offered its support to Principal Verano, as needs arise.

To keep this support going, we need your help and we hope you will join us for a fun virtual event to raise money for our amazing students and families.

We hope you can join us from the comfort of your home on Saturday, April 25th at 12:15pm for a virtual Barre3 class to benefit the Hurley School.

Let’s have fun and move together with Jenny Audia, Hurley parent, and our favorite Barre3 instructor.
