Engineering Challenge at Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow Middle School was full of
engineering energy and excitement on May
21, as IBM representatives paid their
annual visit to our students. This
year's challenge was to conceptualize
and execute plans to build a tower made
out of spaghetti and marshmallows.
Needless to say it was a sticky
situation, yet students were able to
think their way through certain
roadblocks and hurdles and erected many
complex and forward thinking
structures. Thank you to Mike Garguilo
for organizing this successful event and
as well as the IBM engineers for
bringing engineering to the classroom.
Last, but not least, thank you to the
custodians for cleaning up the
classrooms after the towers were
Day at WI!
17th, it was Colonial Day at Washington
Irving School! For the entire morning,
our fourth grade students, teachers and
parent volunteers traveled back in time
and experienced life as it was in
America's colonial times. The morning
was filled with Colonial-era activities,
games and food. Several students and
faculty even dressed in period clothing.
Our fourth grade students
took part in activities and chores
reminiscent of the colonial times.
Children explored everyday village
activities and the roles of men, women
and children within the community.
