All County Music Festival

2 Greenvale Musicians Represent Eastchester at County Music Festival

On March 2nd and 3rd 2 Greenvale fifth graders participated in the Westchester All County Orchestra and Band in their performance at SUNY Purchase.

Violinist Erika Lunenfeld and Drummer Harry Kanterman were selected by audition from among hundreds of competitors to play with other advanced musicians at this prestigious festival. After years of weekly lessons and practice, they spent another 7 hours of rehearsals in order to prepare for their impressive performances in the Band and Orchestra.

Today is March 8. Winter is beginning to wind down and we are looking forward to the arrival of spring. Our days at Greenvale continue to be busy and the children are actively involved in many new learning experiences.

On Tuesday the Greenvale students were treated to a performance of the “Arithmetickles” by the PTA Cultural Arts program. This math game show engaged the entire audience in problem solving. It also demonstrated the importance of careful listening. We had a great day.

Remember to turn your clocks ahead one hour on Saturday night!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend,

From the Principal’s Desk

Dear Greenvale Families,

Today we celebrated the Fifth Grade class as they graduated from the DARE program. We hope that lessons learned in this program will help our students live happier, healthier lives. We are grateful for the support from the Eastchester Police Department and the Town of Eastchester that makes the program possible.

Today is also the first day of March. Although the weather outside may be “frightful”, we can take comfort from knowing that spring is right around the corner.

Wishing you a healthy and happy month,

Darrell Stinchcomb
