Maker Space News – Class 2-T

The students in Mrs. Tolomeo’s class have been very busy over the past two weeks. They have been actively involved in creating their very own board games. Games are naturally designed to encourage active learning. Making the games allowed the students to take charge of their learning and become familiar with the design process. They were able to engage their passion and vision to create a tangible, workable product. The students worked collaboratively to share ideas, give constructive feedback and succeed as a team. This activity was a huge success and a lot of fun!

Dear Greenvale Family,

It has been a hectic week here at Greenvale School.  The students are preparing for the Holiday Concert, the Holiday Boutique was a big success, there were Cultural Arts Events, and as always lots of instruction taking place.  I sat with Mrs. Tolomeo’s class for Technology, and the students taught me how to code.  Even though I know they programmed the game so that I would not win, it was lots of fun. Greenvale’s very own Sebastian Mord performed in the “A Christmas Carol” at Concordia College.

Thank you to Mrs. Beer for painting the new Greenvale Logo on the wall on in the main hallway.  Thank you to the entire Greenvale Community for your contributions to the Toy Drive.  We have already collected two big boxes of toys.  We will continue to accept donations all next week.  The toys will be donated to the Eastchester Community Action Partnership (ECAP) along with the proceeds from the Greenvale Safety Patrol’s Ugly Sweater Contest Fundraiser.

Dear Greenvale Family,

I hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break with family and friends.  We are headed into the end of the year, and it always proves to be the busiest time of the year.  Greenvale will be extremely busy.  Instruction will continue to take place, but there will be holiday celebrations, birthday celebrations, concerts, fundraisers, toy drives, contests, etc.  We ask that you be patient when coming to the building while checking in and parking on the campus.  Remember to take the time to enjoy the holiday season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Hanukkah!

Darrell Stinchcomb

We Are Greenvale Great!

In October, Lilly D’Arcy and Samantha Messina from  Mrs. Dillulio’s 3rd-grade class decided to set up a lemonade stand during a play date.   The girls earned $50.00 from their sales and decided to donate the money to the New York Firefighters’ Burn Center.
The girls received Certificates of Appreciation, t-shirts, patches, and FDNY fighter ducks. Congratulations to Lilly and Samantha for donating to such a worthy cause.   Just another pair of Greenvale students being Greenvale Great!
