Dear Sleepy Hollow Families, 

As we wrap up another incredible school year, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the students, parents, and staff for their hard work, dedication, and support. It has been a year full of growth, learning, and memorable experiences. I would also like to send a special THANK YOU to all the PTA families, the PTA Board members and everyone who supported in all the memorable family events we experienced this school year. Our students will keep these memories forever.
