November, 2021.

Dear Families and Friends of the Hurley School, 

On behalf of the Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School (NPHS), we want to thank you for being a part of the Hurley community!

As the pandemic continues to affect us, especially our children, we continue to be so grateful for the efforts of our teachers, administrators, and staff.  Our entire school community has been working hard to create a nurturing and safe environment for our students.  

So far this year, NPHS has partnered with Handel & Haydn Society and the Community Music Center Boston to provide music classes for the lower grades and a song writing course for the upper grades; helped fund Playworks, an organization bringing structure and support to recess time; provided critical communication applications including ParentSquare and SmartPass; as well as reading specialists; dual language courses for the teachers; technology and supplies for the classrooms.  

This year’s Annual Fund aims to raise funds so that we can introduce after school programs for our studentsBased on student suggestions, NPHS is looking to partner with local organizations so that we can offer a variety of extracurricular activities and clubs such as chess, art, running, robotics, basketball and volleyball.  Your gift allows every student the opportunity to connect and learn beyond the classroom and explore their artistic and athletic abilities.  

In support, if you are able, please consider contributing to this year’s Annual Fund.

The Hurley is a tier-one, bilingual K-8 Boston Public School (BPS) located in the South End whose mission is to graduate students who perform at a high academic level in both English and Spanish. With the vast majority of Hurley students living in high poverty, the school relies on the money raised by NPHS in order to bridge the gaps in funding it receives from the Boston Public School System.

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.  

Your support will also help get us closer to reaching our long term goals: 

  • Remodel the Hurley Auditorium to Serve as a Flexible, Multi-Use Space
  • Build a Cutting-Edge STEAM Program for our Bilingual Students
  • Create a Hurley Schoolyard that Enhances both Learning and Play

Each gift we receive is deeply appreciated.  Your support means that NPHS can continue to help the Hurley School and its students thrive.
