  • Krump Comes to SHMS During Black History Month

    On Friday, February 18, 2022 students at Sleepy Hollow Middle School were treated to a Krump performance by world-renowned dancer Brian “HallowDreamz” Henry and the Krump Collective. The Collective presented a powerful new work that will premiere at Works & Process at the Guggenheim in early 2023. Students had the rare opportunity of witnessing the behind-the-scenes creative process of world class artists, as well as participate in a Q&A following the performance. They even saw a few peers and teachers try their hand at Krumping! At the end of the performance, one Sleepy student said “I felt that in my heart.” The performance was made possible thanks to the generous support of The Pocantico Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

  • American Indian Tribes of the American West

    In Ms. Doran and Mrs. Lynch's 7th grade social studies classes, with the help of their student teacher, Mr. England, students took a closer look at the American Indian Tribes of the West. With the help of the  Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Mullin, to find research and Ms. O'Brien, for the latest technology, the students studied one of the tribes that Lewis and Clark encountered on their journey West. They studied the Tribe's culture, what happened to the Tribe as America expanded westward, and the Tribe today. The project culminated with a presentation to their classmates.  Click the title to see student projects.

  • Teaching Poetry

    During the month of April Ms. Martinez’ 8th grade English Language Learners explored poetry for social justice. The class read poems by Alma Flor Ada, George Ella Lyon, Linda Christensen, and Salvadoran poet Roque Dalton. Students learned that poetry can be playful, that it can include everyday language, and it can celebrate and reflect their own roots, their family members, their ancestors, and their communities. Students began to write their own versions of the poem “Where I’m From” and while building their confidence with writing they realized the power of their words and how they can influence others

  • Tarrytown Celebrates Pearl Harbor Centenarian

    It takes a special kind of person to endear themselves to both children and adults for decades and that is exactly what sets Sleepy Hollow resident Armando “Chick” Galella apart from others. On Jan. 4, the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns wished Galella, a Pearl Harbor survivor, a Happy 100th Birthday and threw him a virtual party with family members, faculty, school leaders and students in attendance. Galella turned 100 years young on New Year’s Day.

  • 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!

  • Quarantine Brings Out Creativity in Sleepy Hollow Students

    As students in the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns worked from home this past spring, they learned to express themselves in new and different ways. Sleepy Hollow Middle School and High School students, for example, created virtual art galleries and took part in projects that taught them about photography, drawing, graphic arts and videography. These are skills that they can continue to explore.
