Tuckahoe School participated in "National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day" sponsored by the School Nutrition Association on October 16. It was a huge success with over 60 parents joining their kids a lunchtime.
During last week's Bully Free Spirit Week, Tuckahoe's Student Council asked the whole school to sign a beautiful Bully Awareness & Prevention Banner made by our art teacher, Miss Barbara Imperiale. On Friday the banner was hung outside on the school ground's fence facing Magee Street to represent Tuckahoe students' support of a bully-free school.

It's time again for the annual Costumes for a Cause, a charitable event where the staff and students can make a donation to a specific cause and wear their Halloween costumes to show their support. The minimum donation is $1, and is optional, but the money collected this year will be donated to assist local families during the holidays.
There's a new environmental club opportunity in the Middle School – the Surfrider Club – which offers students in grades 6 through 8 an opportunity to participate in beach clean-ups and other activities geared toward knowledge about pollution and our local environs.
