  • SHHS Freshman Shares Art in Response to Racial Violence

    SHHS Freshman, Nina Lyppens, shares art she created using an Eastern technique called Notan. Nōtan (濃淡) is a Japanese word, meaning dark-light, there is no English language equivalent. It embodies an ancient Eastern concept, in which all things exist as inseparable and in perfect harmony. An idea similar to an ecosystem. If one component is removed the whole systems will be effected. Within black and white opposites, there is no conflict, the opposites ‘complement,’ each other. Neither seeks to negate or dominate over the other, they only to relate together in perfect balance because the are equal. The white shape has the same equal weight as the black and visa versa. In the video, Nina explains her artwork in this video and shares, "I hope that you will be able to share this Art to represent how we are all equally beautiful no matter how different we look and how we all need one another."

If you have specific questions about the end of the marking period assignments, please reach out to your child’s teacher directly. The schedule for next week and important announcements are below.

  • Audio Recordings by SH Orchestra

    This collection of audio recordings by the Sleepy Hollow Middle School Orchestras and the Sleepy Hollow High School Orchestra, represent the hard work and determination of our Sleepy Hollow music students! Rehearsing synchronously with remote and hybrid students has been extremely challenging, but the Orchestra students of Sleepy Hollow have shown that they will not be held back by this Pandemic! Under the direction of Mrs. Brittney Concia (formerly Trenczer), the string students in both the Middle and High School have risen to the occasion! Thank you to the Sleepy Hollow Performing Arts Boosters who funded the creation of these recordings involving the High School and Middle School Orchestras. The string players of both schools submitted individual audio files and Eric Dalton from Eric Dalton Productions put the recordings together. Lastly, thank you to the publishers for granting us permission to record these pieces. Bravo Sleepy Hollow!
