Thank You For Building Bridges With Us!

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
Helen Keller

27 classes, 39 amazing volunteers, 5 assemblies (and one service dog!)- Building Bridges’ 6th year was a big success!

Thank you to everybody who has made it possible. Thank you to Mr. Morash and Mr. Kilgallen for
organizing the schedules with us, Ms. Derbin for all the support with the classroom activities, Mr. Solivan for organizing our panel of HS students, our Cottle teachers and staff for warmly welcoming us in their
classrooms.

Finally, we are so grateful to the league of extraordinary parents and students who not only volunteered their time but put in hard work, their expertise and their positive energy into this program. Thank you for your invaluable help.

Special thanks to Mrs. Aimee Hoffman who shared her personal story to the 4th graders and to the group of amazing HS students (Christos Bobolakis, John Bobolakis, James Galati, Anthony Gjelaj, Liana Sypher, Lily Tyler) who gave a wonderful presentation to the 5th graders. We could not have done this program without you!

Thank you for building bridges with us!

Foundation Aid Formula Recap & Video

On October 28, 2019, the Eastchester PTA Council and Tuckahoe PTA hosted a community forum at the Eastchester Middle School to discuss the Foundation Aid Formula, and the inequitable distribution of funds allocated by the State of New York to our school districts, including Eastchester and Tuckahoe.  Shelley Mayer, New York State Senator for the 37th District and Chair of the Committee on Education, as well as Amy Paulin, New York State Assemblywoman, 88th Assembly District, were guests for this event.  Ms. Mayer and Ms. Paulin put the issue into historical context and explained the formula, but more importantly discussed ways in which parents, community and school leaders, and PTAs can advocate for equitable funding.  Tara Zegers, President of the Tuckahoe PTA, presented information regarding Tuckahoe.  We encourage you to watch the video of the event and learn how you can be a meaningful part of this discussion to support the students of Tuckahoe.
