Ms. Mirnaly Vega


Dear Sleepy Hollow Family,

We are thrilled to share with you the resounding success of our recent PTA Sponsored  International Night event! It was an evening filled with vibrant student performances, exquisite food, and an abundance of joy for everyone involved.

The student performances showcased the diverse talents of our student body, with each act bringing its own unique flair to the stage. From traditional dances to musical performances, the energy and enthusiasm were palpable throughout the night.

Of course, no International Night would be complete without delicious food from around the world. Our culinary chefs and gracious local restaurants outdid themselves with a selection of dishes that tantalized the taste buds and transported us to far-off lands with every bite.

We are also excited to announce that our Student Council are organizing a food drive. We are already overwhelmed by the generosity of our community. Thanks to your donations, we have already filled many boxes with essential items that will support those in need.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to making International Night such a memorable and successful event. It truly exemplifies the spirit of our school community coming together to celebrate diversity and unity.

Warm regards, 

Mirnaly Vega and Tim Scesney

Principal and Assistant Principal
