Principal's Message

 

December 6, 2019

Dear Cottle families,

December arrived with a blast of ice and snow, and we have now completed three months of the school year!  Our first marking period ends today, December 6, and our teachers will be busy assessing the progress of all our students.  For the past three months, we have travelled the halls and have observed the classroom interactions in our K-5 grades. The outstanding quality of the many lessons taught by our teachers and the depth of the engagement and effort by our students are truly remarkable.  Thank you to our faculty, staff, students, and parents for working together to foster this dynamic learning environment!

Move over, Amazon.com!  This week, on December 4, 5 and 6, the children had the opportunity to visit the annual Holiday Boutique that is presented by our amazing PTA.  The children always enjoy browsing through the Boutique looking for treasures!  

As you all know, the Tuckahoe Union Free School District Board of Education has begun its search for the next Superintendent of Schools and has appointed Dr. Harold A. Coles, District Superintendent of Southern Westchester Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to conduct our nationwide search for qualified candidates. The profile for the superintendent position will be developed collaboratively with involvement by community, faculty and school group representatives.  School district community stakeholders (administrators, faculty, staff, PTA & students) and community forum meetings will be held with Dr. Coles. A public forum for all interested community members will be held at 6:00 p.m. on December 13, 2019 in the Tuckahoe Middle School/High School Auditorium. The Board is requesting that all community members take the time to provide their thoughts and contribute to the development of criteria for best-fit candidates. This will assist the Board and Dr. Coles in identifying top candidates for the District.

The air has also been filled with the sound of holiday music as our Strings Orchestra, Chorus, and Band all rehearsed for their annual Winter Concert.  Be sure to add to your calendar this “must see” holiday show that is scheduled for December 12 at the MS/HS auditorium beginning at 7:00 p.m. with our Orchestra performance.  Tickets will be sent home next week. Please remember your tickets (three per family) the night of the show.  

The Winter Concert schedule is as follows.  We ask that everyone arrive at their scheduled time:

 

  • Session 1:  Orchestra (green tickets) perform at 7:00 p.m. (approximately 7-7:20 p.m.). Students must arrive @ 6:30 PM. There will be a 10-15 minute break in between each session. We respectfully request that families of orchestra students who are not participating in chorus pick up their children at the end of Session 1 so there are enough seats for the large group of chorus/band parents. 

 

  • Session 2: Chorus students (red tickets) perform at 7:30 p.m. (approximately 7:35 -7:55 p.m.). Students must arrive @ 7:00 p.m.

 

  • Session 3: Band students (blue tickets) perform from 8:00-8:30 p.m. Students must arrive @ 7:30 p.m.

 

We look forward to seeing you!
