Tuckahoe’s Senior Citizens Delight in Student Performances

The village’s senior population had a chance to sit back and relax on May 29th as students from several grades entertained them during the district’s annual Spring Luncheon.

Held in the Cottle School auditorium, the annual event is a much-anticipated occurrence at the school.  “We deeply value the relationship we have with our senior citizens,” said Superintendent Carl Albano prior to the student performances. “We appreciate what you do for our community.”

The seniors were entertained by the fifth-grade chorus, which performed a song from the Broadway show, “Dear Evan Hanson.” A group of third-graders played two tunes on the recorder, and the cast from this year’s high school musical, “All Shook Up,” entertained the audience by performing three songs from the lively show. Four fifth-grade violinists also performed, as did dancer Isabella DeFabbia.

Afterward, the seniors were invited to a special catered luncheon on the auditorium stage. Seated at tables draped with bright pink tablecloths and potted plants, the special guests were treated to a full meal complete with a special cake featuring the message, “Welcome Tuckahoe Seniors!”  Several students from school helped with the luncheon.
