As a service to the community, the Tuckahoe PTA’s Health and Safety Committee is forwarding news of an upcoming program series organized by the Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe Coalition (BET) of interest to parents and caregivers.
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!
