Mission Statement

Founded in 1998, the Hasbrouck Heights Education Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization established to enhance and support programs that enrich the educational experience of Hasbrouck Heights public school students in grades K-12 by providing additional community resources to support programs and activities that have a positive educational impact.

Goals

  • To encourage students and teachers to take creative approaches to public education.
  • To provide opportunities for students and teachers to expand learning and maximize each student’s potential.
  • To provide funds for students and teachers to develop innovative programs in science, technology, the arts, language, research, mathematics, literature, and sports.

 

Who is the Foundation?

The Hasbrouck Heights Education Foundation is a coalition of parents, residents, and business leaders working together to enhance the education of children in the Hasbrouck Heights Public School District. The HHEF works closely with the Board of Education and school administration, but remains independent in funding, project selection, and project evaluation.

 

How are projects funded?

Projects are funded through tax-deductible contributions, proceeds from fund-raising activities, or monies obtained through grants from public or private agencies. NO LOCAL TAX DOLLARS ARE USED.

 

Why is there a need for the Foundation?

The Hasbrouck Heights School District educates 1500 children, kindergarten though 12th grade in two elementary schools, the middle level school, and the high school. The Hasbrouck Heights School District provides a quality education for our students. However, it has become increasingly more difficult to fund innovative educational programs that add a richness to the educational experience of our young people. It is the Foundation’s goal to support such innovation.

 

Alumni Association

The Hasbrouck Heights Education Foundation is in the process of forming an alumni association as an additional means of both financial and perpetual support. A Hall of Fame is also being planned for Fall 2001. If you are a graduate of Hasbrouck Heights Jr. Sr. High School and would like to join this fledgling association, please contact us.

Past Accomplishments

  • Funding for special projects to supplement student learning, including "Book in a Bag" and "Exploring the Universe".
  • Citizen CPR courses for High School and community residents.
  • Cultural events and assemblies.

 

How can I help?

  • Contribute to the HHEF. Contributions are tax-deductible.
  • Donate your time to our fundraising projects.
  • Participate in foundation-supported projects by volunteering your expertise.
  • Become an active member of our organization. Our meetings are open to the public and are held in the Burnet Eglow Media Center, Hasbrouck Heights Jr. Sr. High School, 365 Boulevard, Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. Meeting Dates are generally the third Monday of the month with the exception of school holidays and closings. Dates for 2001 are as follows: February 12, March 19, April 16, May 21, June 18. Other dates TBA.
  • Contact us at PO Box 123, Hasbrouck Heights, NJ 07604 or call (201) 288-5924.

    The Hasbrouck Heights Education Foundation deeply regrets the passing of one of our members and immediate past vice president, Nicholas A. Ciocia, on April 1, 2001. The Ciocia Family requests that memorial contributions be made in his name to fund the Nicholas A. Ciocia Scholarship. The scholarship would be awarded to a graduating Hasbrouck Heights High School senior. Checks payable to the Hasbrouck Heights Education Foundation can be mailed to PO Box 123,HH.
