  • 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.

  • Tappan Hill students thank firefighters during weeklong kindness celebration

    Tappan Hill School is celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week! The Connected Learning Team planned a week full of kind acts, appreciation and gratitude for the school community.
    Students in Kim Hild’s class created a list of kind acts that have been posted for each day of this week, as a challenge for students and staff to complete. Students and their families also participated by completing their ‘kindness keys,' in which students shared acts of kindness that have completed at home.
    On Tuesday, Feb. 15, students gave firefighters from the Tarrytown and Hawthorne fire departments thank you cards for their work and service. The special treat for students was getting to see the fire truck and ladders in our circular driveway.
    This week has been an exciting opportunity to teach students about the importance of kindness, not only within school but at home and in the community. Special thanks to the Connected Learning Team, staff and families for making this week so exciting and meaningful for students!
