This week, Eastchester Police Office N. Louros held a CPR recertification class for the school nurses of the Eastchester School District. Greenvale is very appreciative of the hard work and support that our police department provides. Be sure to follow the Eastchester Police Department on Instagram!
Please consider donating to our Thanksgiving Food Drive. We have partnered with the Eastchester Community Action Partnership (ECAP) to help provide Thanksgiving meals for those in need. ECAP benefits people in Eastchester. What better way to observe the Thanksgiving holiday than to help others here at home? Thank you in advance for your generosity. Details about the food drive can be found on the attached ECAP flyer.
Meals need to be sorted and delivered before Thanksgiving so donations will be accepted until November 18th.
Thank you for another great week here at Greenvale School. Our 2nd-grade students marched in their Halloween Parade yesterday and sung to their parents and guests on the blacktop. It was so good to see the children read the lyrics to their songs. We also wrapped up our Loukoumi Foundation “Make A Difference Day” campaign. The donations will go towards a Literacy Room at St. Jude Hospital that will serve patients who have extended stays for treatment. I can’t thank the faculty, staff, students, and parents enough for the donations for this worthy cause. Our students also created some fantastic cards for the patients at St. Jude. I am proud to say that this year, Greenvale School raised $3,108 to donate to St. Jude. Our students were so excited to make cards and collect donations for the Literacy Room that will support the patients at St. Jude. A Big Thank You to everyone. Thank you so much parents, for supporting this event. A special thank you to the Greenvale Student Council and Safety Patrol for their work with this event.
Our students are not done with their efforts to help the community. We are collecting socks for the local homeless shelters. There is a box in the main lobby hallway to receive unused socks. The box will be in the lobby until Friday, November 8th. Let’s fill up the box and support the homeless shelters.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back 1 hour on Saturday.
Have a wonderful weekend!
“Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.”

In some of our neighboring communities, homelessness is an issue facing many adults and children alike. Among many of the challenges these individuals face are keeping warm, well clothed, and healthy. Having dry, clean socks can help ensure that these individuals are healthy and comfortable.
The Greenvale Student Council and students are organizing a sock drive to benefit the homeless in our area. Socks will be collected until November 8th. Please consider making a donation as it will directly help a person in need! All socks must be brand new and in the original packaging. Socks will be accepted for all sizes from Toddler-Adult XL.
If we reach our goal of filling the donation bin, we will celebrate with a “Crazy Sock Day” at Greenvale!! (Date TBD)
Solar ovens use solar energy—light and heat emitted from the sun—to cook food. They can also be used to pasteurize water or even sterilize instruments. How does a solar oven work? The simple answer is that it is designed to absorb more heat than it releases.
