Student Artwork Featured on Board & Superintendent Holiday Cards

  • It has been a long-standing tradition for the Board President, Trustees, and Superintendent to showcase student talent on the holiday cards sent to our federal, state, and local elected officials, community members, staff, and friends of Yonkers Public Schools.

    What makes these cards so unique is how they capture the magic of the time of year as seen through the eyes of our students – the talented young artists from the Yonkers Public Schools whom their art teachers nurture.

    This year's artwork was selected from among hundreds of submitted pieces. The Trustees recognized our students, their teachers, and principals at the December Stated Meeting.
