  • SHHS Important Updates for the Week of 1/19

    Dear Parents and Guardians, During this time in the school year, we usually notify students and parents about midterm week and the administration of the January Regents exams. As you know, this school year has not been a traditional one. With the cancellation of the January Regents exams and to account for some of the frequent interruptions to the blended learning schedule, we have decided to make midterm week a regular week of instruction (following the cohort schedule). As we approach the end of the 1st semester on Friday, January 29th, quarterly assessments and/or final projects will be assigned in lieu of midterm exams. 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. Monday, January 18th - School Closed for Observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Tuesday, January 19th - ODD day, regular bell schedule, Cohort A Wednesday, January 20th - EVEN day, regular bell schedule, Cohort A Thursday, January 21st - ODD day, regular bell schedule, Cohort B Friday, January 22nd - EVEN day, regular bell schedule, Cohort B

  • 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!

    No matter the language in which it's said, the sentiment is the same. Families of SHMHS want to show their enormous appreciation to the district for its support of students during these trying times. On Dec. 14, administrators, faculty and staff at SHMHS were treated to a surprise breakfast of bagels and coffee. In addition to the treats, the faculty lounge was lined with messages from the nearly 40 families who donated the breakfast, in addition to a new coffee machine for the lounge. Teachers were also encouraged to take a sticker with messages including, 'You Rock!' and 'I can't thank you enough!'
