Order School Supplies for 2020-2021

The Greenvale PTA has once again partnered with AHartz to order our school supplies for the 2020-21 school year. This quick, no-hassle process will have your children’s supplies sent directly to the school and ready for the first day of school! Order at ahartzpacktoschool.com.

Ordering begins now! Due to this time of uncertainty, the ordering deadline is extended this year to July 24, 2020.

Once you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation.

This year some household items needed such as tissues and antibacterial wipes will need to be purchased separately and are unable to be included in the packets at this time. This will be explained on the website and from the school for those who choose to buy supplies on their own. Click here for School Supplies 2020 Flyer for more information.

If you have any questions, please email Lauren Meade at laurenjmeade@gmail.com.

A Message from the Greenvale Psychology Team

As race and equity issues continue to be at the forefront of the news, the Greenvale Psychology team is providing a few resources about how to talk with your children about racial differences and racial bias.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Psychology Team  – Francesco Bello at fbello@eufsdk12.org and Lindsay Kline at lkline@eufsdk12.org.

Greenvale Great!

Congratulations to Greenvale students who continue to find ways to serve the community despite our current difficult conditions. On Sunday, May 31st, Lilly and Jack Darcy and Samantha Messina organized a lemonade stand to raise money for the Global Lyme Alliance. They actually raised over $800! After advertising on Facebook and Eastchester moms and dads, many community members, including numerous Greenvale students and Greenvale alumni, as well as Mrs. Gallagher,  came out to support this wonderful cause.

Dear Greenvale Family,

Thank you to the Eastchester Community for the outpouring of support for the teachers at Greenvale School.  They are using their resources and time to provide the best lessons possible for our students during these challenging times.  We will continue to find ways to support our students through virtual learning. We do know that it can be difficult for the students to complete assignments in this new environment and ask for your continued support. The teachers have established office hours to assist the children with lessons.  The school psychologists-Dr. Bello and Ms. Kline are also available for support if needed.  Please feel free to reach out to them for assistance and guidance.    

We are developing plans to return the student’s belongings before the end of the school year.  Please be on the lookout for a schedule and protocols.  

Memorial Day Weekend is a time to have fun with family and friends. I encourage everyone to enjoy time away from the electronic devices and to stay safe.   

Happy Memorial Day!

Dear Greenvale Family,

I hope that everyone is well and in good spirits.  We are in the process of planning how to close out the school year.  We ask for your patience and understanding while we work with the district office to ensure that everyone is safe during the process.  Nurse Grillo will also be working on a plan to safely return all medicines to students in the coming weeks.  

My last video post garnered some replies that contained inappropriate language.  While the replies included some names of our students, we are investigating to see if their accounts were hacked.  I ask that we continue to be the strong and supportive community that we are and support each other throughout this process. 

Parents we do understand that these are unprecedented times and that you are doing the best that you can with distance learning.  We just ask that the students try to complete as much of the work as possible.  I applaud you for your patience and understanding during these times.  

Enjoy the weekend!

Be safe and well,

Dear Greenvale Family,

This past week was the extension of the use of synchronous learning.  I asked the teachers to take the time this week to establish rituals, routines, and protocols.  I hope that all went well on your end.  It is essential that the children attempt to sign on to participate and complete the assignments daily.  We do understand that there are circumstances that may prevent this from happening but we ask that they try to participate as much as possible. Thank you for all your support and understanding during these very trying times.  

Thank you to our AMAZING faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication to our learning community.  They have been taking new classes online, attending webinars, and working with their teams to plan and design lessons for our students.  Happy Teacher’s Appreciation Week!  Thank you for all that you do!

I am looking into creating more videos to stay connected to the students.  Unfortunately, we had a few inappropriate comments on the platform last week, and at this time, I cannot guarantee that blocking the reply feature will work. 

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mothers, we appreciate you!!!!

I MISS OUR LEARNING COMMUNITY!!!!! 

Be safe and well,

Special Poems from Greenvale Poets

We hope you enjoy this beautiful poem written by Class 3-D for their teacher, Mrs. Dillulio.

Dear Mrs. Dillulio,
I’m happy that you’re my teacher;
I enjoy each lesson you teach.
As my role model you inspire me
To dream and to work and to reach.

With your kindness you get my attention;
Every day you are planting a seed
Of curiosity and motivation
To know and to grow and succeed.

You help me fulfill my potential;
I’m thankful for all that you’ve done.
I admire you each day, and I just want to say,
As a teacher, you’re number one! 

Love,Mia, Emma, Sofia, Gianna, James, Danielle, Parker, Conor, Justin H, Ben, Quinn, Ariana, Nick, Justin P, Marcello, Anna, Cecily, Julian, Otoha, Ryo, Jason & Maksim 

Third grade poet Ryo, wrote this clever poem for his teachers. We are so happy to share it with the whole Greenvale community. It captures so much of what we are all experiencing. Stay strong Greenvale!

Greenvale Spirit

Greenvale students continue to show their pride as we work through these long weeks at home. GV student Max shared his exploration of the phenomena of dry ice too! Stay strong everyone!
