  • Sixth-Grade School Hike

    Sleepy Hollow Middle School students enjoyed their first hike of the school year on Sept. 20 when they explored the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. Sixth-graders, all of whom are members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers Team, are students in Michelle Sciullo, Kirk Dietz, Mayerlin Strippoli and Mayra Yepes’ classes. This is one of the many team traditions for sixth-graders. Students had the opportunity to join the runners’ group or take a more leisurely stroll along the path. The activity builds community allowing students get to know each other and their teachers on a more personal level. An added benefit, students from the runners’ group often join the cross-country team in seventh-grade.
