  • Scarecrow contest sparks Halloween fun at Tappan Hill

    Students at Tappan Hill School enjoyed a frightfully fun Halloween, replete with a Scarecrow contest judged by Director of Special Services Andrea Byrne. Students practiced their motor skills last week by designing classroom scarecrows using available and up-cycled materials. The contest was the creation of  the school's Connected Learning Community committee, which plans events to increase a sense of connectedness, build morale, and reinforce academic, fine and gross motor skills and speech/language building concepts, and to practice social skills.

  • Tappan Hill scarecrow contest continues Halloween tradition

    Students in Teacher Adriane Lomupo's class at Tappan Hill School are pictured here preparing for Monday's Scarecrow contest. Tappan Hill students had the chance Friday to practice their motor skills and have a bit of pre-Halloween fun designing their classroom scarecrow. All 10 scarecrows are homemade, using materials in the classroom and up-cycling items that would otherwise be discarded, such as water bottles and plastic bags. On Halloween the school will have a guest judge — Center for Special Services administrators Andrea Byrne or Jessica Walker — pick the best scarecrow. Such contests are becoming a Halloween tradition at Tappan Hill, which held a door decorating contest last year. The school's Connected Learning Community committee plans events like this to increase a sense of connectedness between classes and students and the community and to build morale among staff and students. The activities are also used to reinforce various academic, fine and gross motor skills, speech/language building concepts. They also serve as opportunities for students to practice social skills.
