The Southern Westchester BOCES would like to thank all the staff members and volunteers who helped make the annual Holiday Party a great success.
Students and families had a blast at the Dec. 13 event at the Rye Lake Campus. They spent time decorating (and eating) cookies, coloring and making crafts, and playing games like snowball toss.
Phyllis Rizzi, principal of Tappan Hill School, and her staff were instrumental in planning the party, said Trish Banfield, a SEPTA Executive Board member. “They come out in full force each year to decorate, support the kids, emcee, supply gifts, DJ and morph into Santa, Mrs. Claus and Frosty the Snowman,” she said. “They also fill in the gaps where needed.”
Ms. Banfield also thanked mothers Hayley, Anne Marie and Nicole for volunteering their time.
