Much to Be Thankful for

Despite this year’s hardship, we have much to be thankful for. High on the list are our teachers, administrators, custodians, guidance counselors, aides, bus drivers, security personnel, and all the other essential workers that are dedicated to keeping our schools open and keeping our children safe. Let’s do our part to keep them safe and let them feel that our actions support them.

Please reach out with feedback, questions, ideas, or your interest in getting involved. Your input is essential to our success.

On behalf of the Tuckahoe PTA, I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
