Calling anyone who might be thinking about a career in the arts. Our PTA has organized a panel of professional artists to speak with our high school students on the coming asynchronous Monday (4/19). Panelists include an opera singer, an animator, a violinist, a modern dancer, a sound engineer and an author/illustrator. HS teachers will be posting a flyer for this event in their google classroom. Zoom details can also be found in the daily announcements. You don’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity to hear from some really interesting artists!
Looking for an enriching activity this asynchronous Monday? The Tuckahoe PTA invites you to discover the amazing world of chemistry through a virtual experience: Spin, Pop…Boom by Mad Science. Spin, Pop, Boom is all about awesome experiments! You will witness amazing feats of chemistry while exploring all sorts of spectacular reactions. You will marvel at their demonstrations as they release genies from bottles and spew massive columns of foam with the use of their catalysts!
The Tuckahoe PTA Community Service Committee has identified an upcoming opportunity to perform community service for those who are interested: The 9th Annual Bronx River Cleanup with the Riverkeeper organization.
March is Reading Month! And to celebrate, the Tuckahoe PTA Pick A Reading Partner (PARP) Committee, in conjunction with the Cottle library, invites you to join Mr. Morash and Mr. Kilgallen for a virtual Principal’s Pajama Read-Along Thursday, March 25!
