The PTA has long served the Tuckahoe community with a variety of enrichment programs for families with children in grades K-12. Now, more than ever, we are committed to supporting Tuckahoe families throughout the coming school year. Your PTA membership dues help support our programs, especially in this time of depleted funds. We welcome your input as to how you feel the PTA can best serve the district in the COVID-19 era.
As we begin the 2020-21 school year, we find ourselves filled with trepidation at the uncertainties that lie ahead. The COVID-19 pandemic has infiltrated every facet of our lives, and the school setting is not easily navigable with respect to balancing academics, social-emotional well-being, and safety. Even under ordinary circumstances, the start of a new school year is often filled with tension and anxiety.
The Animation Lab, a stop-action animation workshop, was taught virtually to the 5th Graders in their Applications of Art to the Real World, STEAM Art class, by visiting artist, Anne O’Connor. Students completed projects demonstrating object animation, drawing animation, “cooking” animation, and cel animation, using CloudStopMotion and WeVideo platforms. The Tuckahoe PTA funded the program for the children. Please take a look at the students’ amazing work!
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. Please review the update below regarding the deadline for mail-in or dropped off ballots:
Please note that as per a new Executive Order from the Governor today, ballots received by mail in the office of the clerk of the school district not later than June 16, 2020 shall be canvassed for the June 9, 2020 budget vote and trustee election.
