BoE Trustee Candidate Debate Forum – An Apology

We apologize to any community members who were unable to view last night’s Board of Education Trustee Candidates’ Forum.  Attendance exceeded our expectations, as well as the capabilities of our Zoom account.  The Forum has been recorded and will be available for viewing on Cablevision Channel 77 and Verizon Channel 27, as well as on The District’s YouTube Channel or through links that will be posted at www.tuckahoepta.com shortly.

The Tuckahoe PTA supports the Proposed Budget.  We encourage all registered voters to return their Absentee Ballots and vote on the Proposed Budget and the Candidates for the Board of Education Trustee Seats in time for the deadline, which is 5 pm on June 9, 2020.  A reminder that all ballots must be received by the District Clerk by that time and that there is a Drop Box at Cottle School where ballots may be returned.

Volunteer and Leadership Opportunities for High School Students

Special Message from the Youth Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe

The YCF is a group of students from Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe who participate in community service, fundraising and award grants to local agency programs serving youth.  It is a great way for teens to give back to their community and to hold leadership positions.  Last year we started the YCF of BET and over 60 students from all three communities worked together to make our community stronger.  The students worked on community service projects and awarded the first grant this spring to the Bereavement Center.  

We are currently accepting new applications for the 20-21 school year.  We are looking for students to participate on the Volunteer team, open to grades 9-12, and for our Leadership team, which is open to rising Juniors.  It is a great opportunity to give back to your community, learn about local nonprofits, and develop leadership skills.  

If you are interested, more information and the application can be found here.

Call for Volunteers – The PTA Executive Board

The Tuckahoe PTA still has several openings available on the Executive Board. Helping the PTA as a parent volunteer is a fulfilling way to contribute to our school district and help students across the board enjoy fulfilling programs and experiences. Now more than ever,  volunteers are needed to make the 2020/2021 PTA programs and offerings a possibility for all students. 

Committee terms are for two years. All committees have two chairs to share the responsibilities, along with several parent volunteers able to support their efforts. Chairs must attend monthly PTA Executive Board meetings (held the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm), but can switch off attendance in case both are not able to attend all meetings.

The following positions will become available at the start of the 2020-2021 school year. If you are interested, please send a short email to the Nominating Committee at tuckahoeptanom@gmail.com with the name of the position of interest in the subject line. Questions may also be directed to that email address.
