Dear Greenvale Family,

Greenvale was able to collect two big boxes of socks for the homeless.  Thank you to our students, teachers, and parents for your generosity.  We will pick another day for crazy sock day so that all of our students and staff can participate.

The Greenvale Safety Patrol will meet to discuss the Ugly Sweater Contest.  Please be on the look-out for details.

After yesterday’s crazy storm I am wishing everyone some peace and quiet with your loved ones.  Grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and movies sound great.

Have a Great weekend!

Dear Greenvale Family,

Thank you again for your donations for the Loukoumi Foundation, Make a Difference Day, to support St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  Our two year total for contributions is $5,000.  Greenvale is truly Great!

We have extended the Sock Drive until Friday, November 16th. The box was only half full, and I know that we can fill up at least one box.  We will have crazy sock day on Friday, November 16th as well.  Let’s see who comes to Greenvale with the craziest socks on.

Our 2018-2019 Greenvale Safety Patrol is on duty and doing a Great job!  We are gearing up for our Ugly Sweater Contest in December.  Please be on the look-out for the details about our annual event.  Ok, so I had on a sweater about two weeks ago, and one of the students said that I was starting the contest early.  Thanks a lot.

A big THANK YOU to all of our Veteran’s!  Thank you for all that you do, have done, and will do for our country.  Happy Veteran’s Day to everyone.

Have a Great weekend!

Friday, November 16th will be Crazy Sock Day!

Second Grader Creates Her Own Vending Machine

Hi, My name is Makayla. I am a second grade student in Mrs. Tolomeo’s class. On Sunday my mom gave me a box and I was thinking of something to make out of it. Then I thought of making a vending machine. So I worked and worked and worked until I created a working vending machine. To use the machine, the customer says what he/she wants and someone will use a long tool to push the candy out. I was inspired to create this because of our makerspace lessons at Greenvale. They help us to be creative and solve problems. People are impressed when they see my vending machine.

Science 21 Bear Bridge Design Challenge

Classes 2 T and 4 G collaborated on a Science 21 Lesson : Structure and Properties of Matter.

Students decided what properties of materials would cause a bridge to hold a lot weight.   Each team worked through the design process to create strong durable bridges.

Dear Greenvale Family,

The Greenvale Learning Community did an excellent job supporting the Loukoumi Foundation’s Make A Difference Day in support of literacy at St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  Last year Greenvale School raised and donated over $2,000 and made over 500 cards for the patients.  I am proud to announce this year we raised over $3,000 and made about 600 cards.  We are indeed a giving and supportive community.

The classrooms with the highest donations on each grade level are 2nd grade-Mrs. Tolomeo, 3rd grade- Mrs. Frascone, 4th grade-Ms. O’Sullivan, and 5th grade-Mrs. Poli.  The Eastchester Teachers Association will sponsor a pizza or ice-cream party to the winning classes.  Our whole school community are winners.  A big THANK YOU! Goes out to the Greenvale faculty, staff, students, and parents for supporting this fundraiser.  A special Thank you to Mr. Pesce and the Greenvale Student Council for their hard work on this event.  We are on to the next fundraising event.

Last year Elly Convery and Gabby Criscillo asked if we could collect socks for the homeless. Of course, we said yes, and as a school community we collected about three boxes of socks to donate.  Elly and Gabby asked if we could collect socks again this year.  We will have boxes to collect donations in the main hallway for the event.

Morning drop-off is getting much better.  I know that we are busy trying to get to various locations, catch trains, and make other drop-offs, but I implore you to slow down in the school zone and to adhere to all of the safety rules.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you to everyone for being Greenvale Great!
