There will be a Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 7:00 pm in the Hendrick Hudson High School cafeteria.
With the district preparing to implement the Princeton Plan in September, the Transportation Department has been developing the most efficient bus routes to transport Hen Hud students to and from their schools. Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter recently chatted with Supervisor of Transportation Liz Gilleo regarding transportation planning in the district.
“The sun always shines on Frank G. Lindsey,” said Principal Donna Torrisi, at the start of the school’s fifth grade Moving Up ceremony on June 23, also the last day of school in the district. Indeed, while other end-of-year ceremonies earlier in the week had to be maneuvered around potential showers, the sun peeked out from the clouds just as the middle school-bound students arrived on the school’s blacktop to the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance.”
The rain may have caused Blue Mountain Middle School to hold its eighth grade Moving Up ceremony indoors on June 21, but nothing could dim the excitement of students and families as they filed into the gym to celebrate the milestone event.
When they tossed their blue and white caps in the air at the conclusion of their commencement ceremony on Friday, June 17, members of Hendrick Hudson High School’s Class of 2022 began a new phase in their young lives.
After studying women’s suffrage this spring, students in Kerri Houlahan and Halette Sharkey’s fourth grade class at FGL decided to create a “Women’s Hall of Fame” and induct some famous women in history. “The students said that they loved learning about the impact these women had on society,” said Houlahan.
FGL kindergarten classes sang and danced during the school’s end-of-year Kindergarten Showcase, eager to perform for their family members. The showcase is a tradition that started during the 2016-2017 school year. While it was paused for a few years due to Covid, the event returned this month, with the students performing outside on a recent beautiful sunny afternoon.
“I know you – you’re my pen pal!” said one student excitedly to another while climbing on some playground equipment at Buchanan-Verplanck Elementary School. It was exactly the type of friendly connection the district is hoping to nurture through a range of Princeton Plan transition activities.
There’s a new interactive flat panel showing up in Hen Hud elementary school classrooms, and early reviews are nothing but positive. BenQ panels have been in place for a few weeks at Furnace Woods and Buchanan-Verplanck and are scheduled for installation at Frank G. Lindsey over the summer. Teachers are giving the panels high marks for ease of use and functionality.
