  • Elementary School Music Teachers Inspire Students During Music Month

    The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) designates March as Music in Our Schools Month to raise awareness of the importance of music in education. Although the pandemic has presented particular challenges for music classes this past year, our teachers continue to find creative ways to keep music a part of the curriculum. Two of those teachers joined the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns just this year; Mr. Jeffery Mizen teaches students in John Paulding and W.L. Morse and Ms. Abby Ferri is at Washington Irving.

    Photo Days are just around the corner and they will be a little different this year. First we will be having our Photo Days by Cohort, not by grade level. Cohort A will have their photo taken Monday, October 19 th , Cohort B will have their photo taken Thursday, October 22 nd ,Cohort C will have their photo taken Monday, October, 19th . We are trying to provide the opportunity for every student, 100% Remote or Hybrid, to have their photo taken. Exact timing of the class schedule is still being worked out. We plan on the Remote learning students to be photographed in the morning starting by 8am and the Hybrid students will be photographed a little later in the day. All teachers will be signing up for a time as they have done every other year, the times have yet to be determined and you will be updated once the timing is selected.
