As the end of the school year approaches and students’ focus slowly shifts to summer plans, our area schools are still overflowing with academic and individual achievements. But even as they cram for their finals students still find time to Hike or Hunger, honor their favorite teacher, and prepare to be sprayed with color!
Sleepy Hollow science teacher David Erenberg has been chosen by Mercy College to join the second cohort of teachers for the Greater New York Wipro Science Education Fellowship. The fellowship sup-ports five local school districts with targeted professional development and leadership opportunities. Erenberg will join colleagues from East Ramapo Central School District, City School District of New Rochelle, Port Chester-Rye Union Free School District, and White Plains Central School District in a two-Sleepy Hollow Teacher Joins Prestigious Fellowship year fellowship focused on leadership in science education. The second year of the fellow-ship will entail Erenberg leading professional development in the District and working on a district-wide initiative of his choosing. A mass of runners in all-white t-shirts will descend upon Kingsland Point Park on Saturday, June 20 for the Second Annual Horseman Color Run. The shirts will not, however, be all white at the end of the race, as volunteers will be spraying passing runners with different colors along the route. Presented by the Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns, the event consists of not only the 5k race, which begins at 9:30 am, but smaller races for younger runners and a large fun fair for all. A portion of the funds raised at the event will go toward the Middle School Recess Space Redesign project. For more information, visit http://www.horsemancolor-run.com.
