MARLBORO SCHOOL DISTRICT
Marlboro Township Public Schools was proud to be able to engage our community in a service learning project with JAR of Hope.
In order to bring awareness to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, we held a District-wide campaign on Friday, June 16 by asking students and staff members to donate just $1.00 towards the cause. Teachers and staff educated students on the basics of DMD and how it affects children worldwide.
Throughout the day, members of each school came together to do push-ups as a symbolic message of hope to honor the thousands of children battling DMD.
James Raffone was able to visit Frank J. Dugan Elementary School alongside members of the administration, and Board of Education members Debbie Mattos (President) and Craig Marshall. James led the students to do push ups while chanting “Up, Down, Jar of Hope!”
In total, Marlboro Township Public Schools raised over $5,000!
Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Eric Hibbs is so proud of Marlboro’s students, staff, and community for their warm hearts and hard work.
He said, “We all stood together hoping to find a cure for a terrible disease. I talk about being the “right kind of person” all of the time. Our work with JAR of Hope shows exactly that Marlboro has the right kind of people.”
