Green Ribbon Club to Host Screening of the Film, "Angst"

 The Scarsdale High School Green Ribbon Club Sponsors Screening of Angst on May 28, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the Little Theater at Scarsdale High School

The President of the Green Ribbon Club, Jaclyn Finger, announced today that the Club is sponsoring a free screening of the film Angst followed by an interactive session and discussion.

Angst explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it with contributions from students, young adults, professionals, and Olympic Swimmer and Gold Medalist Michael Phelps. The goal of the film, and this screening, is raise awareness around anxiety. It provides a starting point for discussion via the interviews with people suffering with anxiety like Michael Phelps. Additional discussions with experts about the causes, solutions, and available resources to address anxiety spark further conversation.

The Green Ribbon Club raised money this year and last year to fund this screening through various fundraisers organized and conducted by the members of the club. The members worked hard to achieve the required financial commitment from various donors so that the screening would be at no cost to all who can attend. The club members hope that by making the screening free, attendance will be maximized as will community benefit from the discussion.

Jaclyn Finger and the members of Scarsdale High School Green Ribbon Club invite all members of the community, students, parents, school staff, teachers, and professionals to attend and participate.

Early Childhood Open House at Hoff-Barthelson Music School

hoffopenhouse Hoff-Barthelson Music School Hosts Early Childhood Open House
Join in the fun of a music and movement class, and learn about the School’s offerings!
Enroll now for Fall Classes at Westchester’s Premier Community Music School

 

Scarsdale, New York – Learn all that Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Early Childhood Program has to offer by attending an Open House on Friday, June 7, 2019, from 10:00 to 11:30 am! Children ages 6 months to 5 years and their adults are invited to join in the fun of a music and movement class at 10:30 am, followed by a brief Q & A with faculty, and a reception during which you can socialize with other families.

 

About the Early Childhood Program:
Weekly classes incorporate exercises and games that involve singing, moving, improvising, and using small percussion instruments to promote keen inner hearing and rhythmic sensitivity. Props such as colorful balls, hoops, scarves, and puppets animate musical concepts and engage the senses and imagination. Even the very youngest children develop focus, spatial awareness, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, and the ability to work with others—all while having fun.

 

Classes are available for parents/caregivers with their children as well as in a “drop-off” format for children who enjoy attending music class independently.

 

Hoff-Barthelson’s Early Childhood classes encourage and support the development of children’s minds and bodies through Dalcroze Eurhythmics, a renowned teaching method that pairs music and movement. Hoff-Barthelson is known for one of the largest faculties of Dalcroze trained and certified teachers in the United States.

 

For families interested in taking the first steps in learning to play an instrument, Little Pipers Recorder Classes, Suzuki Pre-Twinkler for Violin and Beginning Ukulele are hands-on classes for older threes and up. Other offerings include Petite Chorus, an introduction to the world of choral singing and Saturday Songs, a class where children ages 3 and 4 explore musical concepts. These fun, interactive and informative classes are a great way to introduce young children to musical instruction in a social setting with other children of similar ages, and is the perfect first step to private lesson instruction as children get older.

 

"The classes, grouped by age, are dynamic and interactive," said Laura Barnet, Early Childhood Music Specialist at Hoff-Barthelson. "Children love music. It is something that they can participate in at a young age; it fosters their complete development."

 

A complete listing of available classes and their descriptions can be found at https://hbms.org/young-children.php.

Dani Shapiro: Author of "Inheritance" at Scarsdale High School

The Scarsdale Adult School is pleased to announce an author visit with Dani Shapiro on Tuesday, June 11 at 7:30 pm at Scarsdale High School. Cost is $25. Register today at www.ScarsdaleAdultSchool.org.

Join us for an evening with Dani Shapiro in conversation with SAS's literature instructor, Lori Rotskoff. Topics will include Shapiro's bestselling memoir, Inheritance, a beautifully written, thought-provoking genealogical mystery which captivates readers from the very first pages.

In this fascinating memoir, Shapiro writes of how she questioned her identity when a DNA test revealed that she was not, as she believed she was, 100% Jewish. Shapiro grew up in an Orthodox family in suburban New Jersey; blonde-haired and blue-eyed, she often felt out of place in a family of dark-haired Ashkenazi Jews, yet she had shrugged off the physical differences.
But when she got the DNA test results, the then-54-year-old began researching her family history, and within months she unraveled a narrative leading back to the 1960s and the early days of artificial insemination. Her own parents had died, but now, with the support of her husband and son, she discovered her biological father, a doctor from Portland. Shapiro realized that her childhood, her ancestral lineage, and the foundation of her world were based on deception. ‘What potent combination of lawlessness, secrecy, desire, shame, greed, and confusion had led to my conception?’ Shapiro writes.
Shapiro is the author of the memoirs Hourglass, Still Writing, Devotion, and Slow Motion and five novels including Black & White and Family History. Also an essayist and a journalist, Shapiro’s short fiction, essays, and journalistic pieces have appeared in The New Yorker, Granta, Tin House, One Story, Elle, Vogue, O, The Oprah Magazine, The New York Times Book Review, the op-ed pages of the New York Times, and many other publications.
