K-12 Educational Programs
For the first time students from every public and parochial school in the Town of Eastchester and the Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville joined together in participating in a single project — the celebration of the 350th Anniversary! Each school encouraged their students to participate in any of the six following activities described below; student research papers, exhibits, performance/acting, digital media, fine arts (paintings, sculpture, cartoons, dance, etc.) and film.
Any student residing in the Town of Eastchester and the Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville was eligible to participate in one of six activities. All activities were based on topics of local history starting with Native Americans up through today that highlight the rich cultural legacy of this community. Please refer to Twelve National Themes with Local Topics for Educators and Topics for the 350th Anniversary Celebration for suggested activity and project themes.
