TUFSD Honors the Life and Legacy of Armando "Chick" Galella

The Pubic Schools of the Tarrytowns mourns the loss of of our dear friend Armando "Chick" Galella and sends our deepest condolences to his family. We also celebrate the incredible relationship that Chick cultivated with our students and faculty, particularly for the annual placement of the flags on the grounds of SHHS. Chick always took the opportunity to teach us about the importance of honor and service for our country. Please enjoy some of our favorite photos from 2018 and 2019 of Chick and the event he loved.
Superintendent Chris Borsari said, "Chick was such an incredible person and friend of the District. He supported our students and connected with all in an authentic and unique way. He was the living 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow'!"
In honor of Chick, the flags at all our buildings will be flown at half staff through Wednesday, October 6th, the day of Chick's funeral.
