A Message from the PTA

The Executive Board of the Tuckahoe PTA wishes to, first and foremost, send our support to all of our families as we as a school community navigate this challenging situation together.  We hope that everyone remains safe and healthy throughout this time.

We owe a debt of gratitude to all of our Administrators, Teachers, and other School Staff for their leadership, commitment, and dedication to our students.  Every educator has taken on the challenge with positivity and creativity, playing a vital role in ensuring the continued education of our students in the most uncertain of times–from technology to curriculum to support services to facilities, we thank each and every one of you for your efforts.

The Tuckahoe PTA remains committed to resuming as many activities, programs, and events as possible once we are in a position to do so safely and responsibly.  We continue to post updates on our web site www.tuckahoepta.com.  We also serve as a resource for families who may have questions or concerns.  Do not hesitate to reach out to Board members, listed on the web site, with specific questions as they may arise.  If we cannot answer them, we will try to put you in touch with someone who can.

Building Bridges: Understanding People with Different Abilities

Building Bridges is Back!

When:  February 24th to 28th, 2020
Where:  William E. Cottle Elementary School

Building Bridges is back for its 6th year at Cottle School!  Be a part of this wonderful program that the kids truly look forward to every year.

  • Kindergartners will get an overview of disabilities
  • First Graders will learn about people with sight impairments
  • Second Graders will learn about hearing impairments
  • Third Graders will focus on Autism
  • Fourth Graders will be learning about people with physical disabilities, and
  • Fifth Graders will discuss learning disabilities.

These lessons will be done in each classroom where the children will get the opportunity to participate in hands-on, interactive activities.  Each grade also will also attend an assembly with a wonderful speaker.

We need parent volunteers to make this program a success!!

<<Click here to sign up to volunteer in your child’s classroom>>

The time commitment for volunteering is minimal – just 2-3 hours of your time.  You will work with 1 or 2 other parents in a classroom to run the sessions.  Don’t worry!  We provide the script, the materials and we will give you a short training.

Training sessions will be held on February 12, 2020, either at 8:30 am and 7:30 pm in the Cottle Auditorium.  Please plan to attend one session, which lasts 30-45 minutes.

Questions/comments about volunteering may be directed to:  Alona Trinidad (alonasantri@gmail.com) and Charlie Zegers (charlie.zegers@gmail.com)

We are looking forward to another wonderful Building Bridges Week!
