Here are the trucks that will be attending:

Physical distancing and face masks required. This is a grab-and-go event—please send only one member of your family to wait in line, and please register for only one person regardless of the number of trucks you would like to visit and number of meals you will be taking to go.

EPTA Annual Campaign

Direct Donation Campaign

Your Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow EPTA is changing the direction of its fundraising this year.  To raise the $32,000 it takes every year to provide all of the programming and educational benefits we sponsor, this year we are asking for Direct Donations from our Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow friends and family.


A VERY EASY, QUICK WAY FOR OUR SCHOOL TO EARN MONEY FOR OUR TEACHERS AND CHILDREN!  100% of your donation goes directly to benefit the children through materials, events and programs and is 100% tax deductible!


Direct Donation eliminates the hassles, gets more cash for our classrooms, and allows your money to work harder for our students!

Help us provide all the programming and educational benefits we do throughout the school year! (For a sample of what the EPTA has made possible in the elementary schools, please review the list below.)  If your employer offers a matching fund program, please let them know about your donation!

Please use the attached Direct Donation Flyer to return your generous donation to the EPTA. You can send it in to school with your child, who can give it to his/her teacher.

Thank you very kindly for all your continued support of the EPTA – we couldn’t do it without you!  Many thanks to those who have already contributed!
