The Scarsdale High School Carnival on Friday and Saturday April 20-21 got a boost from perfect weather, bringing out a wide swath of the community. School Government Advisor, Neil Ginsberg who has organized this effort for years was especially pleased with the results this year.
According to Ginsberg, “When the School Government decided to bring a yearly carnival to Scarsdale for the Spring of 2001, we never thought it would become such a community-wide experience. This tradition has SHS students involved in activities which benefit others. Add to that, having groups of people from the entire Scarsdale community, especially the future SHS students, enjoying a beautiful weekend together in a fun way, and you have a recipe for success. I love watching students from forty clubs, the class governments, and the school government having people work to make sure everything goes smoothly. I also enjoy the small town feeling that permeates the school grounds. Finally, all the groups combined to raise over $25,000 for charities; it doesn't get much better than this.
Here are photos of some of the activities that took place taken by Scarsdale High School student Lindsay LeBoyer.
