Casino Night 2016 A Great Success

On March 5, 2016, The Foundation to Inspire Excellence in Nyack Schools, Inc. held its annual Casino Night at the Nyack Seaport for Cultural Events in Nyack, New York. Over 200 people attended this year’s event.  The community support was overwhelming and the evening raised $33,000 to fund STEM related educational programs within the Nyack schools. A special focus this year and next will be to raise enough money to equip a Mac computer lab at the Nyack Middle School, in addition to the many other initiatives that Inspire Nyack contributes to throughout the year; Robotics, Science Assemblies, Science Fairs, Pi Day at Nyack High School, teacher dream grants & more.

Dedication of the Inspire Nyack MacLab at Nyack High School

On October 6, 2015 members of Inspire Nyack’s Board of Directors visited Nyack High School to tour the new arts production computer lab that the foundation funded with a donation of $80,000. Mr. Matthew Lucero, Music Department Chair, and his students gave board members a demonstration of what the students are learning in the new Intro to Music Technology class, which explores the principles of audio and sound recording. The goal of the class is to go beyond the world of traditional music education and strict performance, to a world of career opportunities that exist in the 21st-century job market: film scoring, commercial advertising, media production, acoustic engineering, TV/radio production, e-media/web production, electronic systems design, music composing, and arranging.
