  • Extended School Year students' work featured in Gallery Walk

    Ms. Janeelia Henry's Extended School Year Only K-2 class celebrated the end of the summer by inviting families in for a Gallery Walk. Artwork completed by the students over the summer was on full display.  Ms. Henry's classroom Teaching Assistant, Ms. Patrice Barrett, a talented artist, was behind all the projects. These included straw art, toilet paper art, finger painting, as well as displays related to ELA and science curriculums.
    In addition, from reading, social skills and Science, School Counselor Jennifer Ardisana worked with students on the life cycle of a caterpillar, then retold the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. For the book the Rainbow Fish, Ms. Ardisana focused on friendship and sharing.  
    Following the gallery walk, parents were invited to the gym to view a beautiful slideshow displaying all the fantastic experiences the students engaged in this summer, including pictures of the students completing the artwork, trips to the Maritime Aquarium, Muscoot Farm, Kensico Dam, and Rye Playland.  When students were on the Rye Lake Campus, they enjoyed the playgrounds, gymnasium, upper basketball court and the very popular sprinklers and water play area.  
    To end this memorable event, Ms. Henry invited families to have refreshments and take their child's artwork home.

  • ESY students put their handprint on summer, make artful memories

    This summer the Extended School Year Only Class created a Handprint Project to memorialize their time together this summer. Each student picked their own color and was able to become an artist and do multiple handprints at one time. By doing this project, students were able to have a keepsake to look back on their time together. This is the second year that ESY students completed this project. Last year Janeelia Henry completed it with her class.  Hopefully this tradition will continue. Our students enjoy their time here at the ESY Summer Program, and we look to continue to come up with innovative projects for them to take home. Pictured, from left to right, are teaching assistant Adrian Drezga, students Ozan Dinler, Ethan Marino, John Fitzgerald, Nicholas Rittmeyer, Christian Leary, and Brooke Furtado, teacher Hollie Smith, and teaching assistant Lydia Daley.

  • Principal Phyllis Rizzi named statewide 'Administrator of the Year'

    A veteran SWBOCES leader in special education has been honored by her peers across New York State for being among the best in her field. Phyllis Rizzi, principal at Tappan Hill School in Tarrytown, learned late last month in a letter from Regional Association of Supervisors & Administrators President Anthony Baxter that she had been named Administrator of the Year by the group’s parent organization, Empire State Association of Supervisors & Administrators.

    “This well deserved acknowledgement is a tribute to the hard work you have expended over the years to ensure student and staff success,” Mr. Baxter wrote. Ms. Rizzi had an opportunity to express her gratitude recently at the regional group’s virtual meeting before addressing a statewide audience at ESSAA's Annual Gala on May 20 at the Sleepy Hollow Conference Center.
