  • Opportunities are provided for students to visit, work with personnel and use the resources of notable cultural institutions and nature centers in Westchester like the Hudson River Museum and Arts in Westchester.

For Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15- October 15) 
Museum School 25 recognized and celebrated the various Hispanic backgrounds through music and dance, literature, foods, and cultural artifacts. 

Each class demonstrated their use of 21st Century skills through the research of a Latin country of their interest. Students were able to share their research of each cultural component at the Hispanic Heritage Event. Students also participated in the showcase
-through the reading of literature that is specific to European, South American, Central American, and Caribbean nations.

Families, students, and staff were invited to take part in the celebration.

It was truly a great success!
