  • When the Teacher Becomes the Student: Professional Development in the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns

    Many teachers take time in the summer months to engage in professional development. This year, as teachers anticipate continued changes to instruction, the level of interest has increased. Not surprisingly, some of the sessions in highest demand focus on virtual learning, helping teachers to adjust resources and materials and select virtual tools and strategies. Assistant Superintendent for Administration & Instruction Gail Duffy says that dynamic teaching in a virtual learning space is critical to keeping students engaged. “In March, our teachers were asked to provide remote learning with very little time to plan - and they did an amazing job,” said Duffy. “As we look ahead and have some time to be more thoughtful about how to amplify learning in a virtual environment, many of our teachers are taking the opportunity to hear about best practices and discover new strategies.”

  • The Public Schools of the Tarrytowns Provides Meals Throughout the Summer

    Maria Filippelli sat in front of Sleepy Hollow Middle School on a recent morning doing what she loves - feeding children. Filippelli is the Food Service Manager for Whitsons Food Services, the company retained by the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns to help feed families in need when the pandemic began. And they have continued to provide that service each weekday, no questions asked. The District has provided 101,278 meals since schools closed in March “COVID-19 has affected our region and school community in many ways. Several families have lost income during this time and food insecurity has become increasingly prevalent,” said Assistant Superintendent for Business Joy Myke.

    Although it should go without saying, acts of racism, discrimination, and intolerance have no place in this community or any other across this country. However, as the recent senseless and shameful death of George Floyd, and other Black Americans has made clear, they continue to occur. As I have reflected upon these events and their aftermath, my emotions have ranged from anger and sadness to grief and shame. They have been visceral and overwhelming. In our diverse community, it is critical that we not only renounce such acts, and the dehumanizing and harmful physical and emotional injuries which racism and hatred breed daily, but that we also resolve ourselves to work together to change this narrative.

  • Graduation Signs

    June is a special time for any graduating class. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, the students in the Class of 2020 have to celebrate their milestone apart from one another and away from the faculty. Many of the scheduled events have to be changed to meet the demands of the current times. In order to show the graduating class that we were proud of their achievement, several members of the high school faculty and staff delivered Graduation Signs to every one of the 193 graduating seniors in the Class of 2020.
