  • Newark Boys Chorus School is honored that the Snyder Foundation selected our school to form an ongoing educational-philanthropic partnership. The funds will be used to: Purchase iPad Pros for all incoming NBCS students. Every student at the school has a iPad for use in school, at home and while on tour. This enables the teacher to extend the classroom day, stay in touch with the students, real-time and to provide appropriate feedback. Need Based Lunch Program: These funds will be used during the second semester to provide daily lunch for students based on need. Wireless Keyboarding Laboratory: This project replaces the 20 year-old laboratory that is not capable of any form of communications via the internet. Now our students will utilize cloud-based apps to learn keyboarding skills and programs such as Garage Band to compose and arrange music. We are excited to advance the educational programs at the school through our cooperative venture with The Snyder Foundation. – Richard Willett, Head of School, Newark Boys Chorus School
