FIRST GRADE — In 2004 Marley Chefalo (left) was a Haldane Elementary School first grader in Catherine Scrocca’s class. This month, Chefalo began her first student teaching assignment alongside her former teacher, in the same classroom.
THIRD GRADE — Jennifer Windel’s class visited Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie for a look at a robotic surgery system used by Dr. Ryan Swan, a hepatobiliary surgeon and father of two Haldane students. The da Vinci robot allows surgeons to perform delicate operations through a few incisions. Swan and his wife, Gina, moved to Cold Spring three years ago from Charlotte, North Carolina.
TWELFTH GRADE —Erin Ledwith, a Haldane senior who attends the Pines Bridge program in Yorktown Heights, was honored at the school board meeting on Jan. 22 as a Student of Distinction. She received a certificate and medal and an ovation from administrators, teachers, family and friends who packed the meeting room.
