What's This

SPW color

Letter from the President

My recent experience at the Mayo Clinic with a sick friend has enlightened me. Everyone there is extremely kind and considerate to one another. They share a singular purpose of struggle, and hope permeates the atmosphere.
My personal resolution for the New Year is to be more mindful and grateful for my own blessings, and to realize that behind every family I encounter there could be a story of quiet suffering and/or a challenging illness.

I send to all of you my best wishes for a happy and healthy new year and ask only that we treat each other in Armour Villa with dignity, respect, compassion, and be ready to assist those less fortunate than ourselves.

- Steve Wagner, spwagner@earthlink.net 

Major Accomplishments of the Association

Safety and Security

We had a law passed in the state legislature to keep women and children safe in their homes from predators.

We fought to get a safety light at Pondfield Rd and Gard Avenue, which will go in this summer.

We worked with the first precinct to apprehend criminals who were breaking into homes in the area.

We got the city to re-pave sections of Armour Villa that desperately needed attention.

Beautification and property value

We continue to improve and maintain the Armour Villa Garden, which everyone loves.

We worked with the city to force delinquent property owners to clean up their vacant or derelict properties.

We hosted several informative seminars on Aging in Place and when to downsize and what you need to know to do.

Social

Our annual picnic and Wine & Cheese events continue to get bigger and better with great food and lots of fun for all

Our two time award-winning Villa Voice, website and Facebook page keep you informed and up to date on things you need to know.

We continue to always be there to help you solve any issues that may arise, where we can be of help or explain changes that may affect your quality of life.

Now we ask you to be there for us by writing a check or going to our website and showing your support through Square. At this time donations are not tax deductible under the Internal Revenue Service Code.

School Choice in Yonkers

schoolSchool Choice in Yonkers - What it Means for You!
Yonkers Public Schools utilize a School Choice Process, meaning students from all over the city have the opportunity to attend any school within the district. However, there are two types of preference given to applicants--sibling and attendance zone. If a sibling is already enrolled in DiChiaro, a brother or sister living in the same household would get first preference. Secondly, DiChiaro is one of the schools considered to have an “attendance zone”. Students living within the attendance zone would get second preference. Therefore, Armour Villa families fall into this category. For more detailed information on this process and a catalog of schools, please visit http://www.yonkerspublicschools.org/docs/schools/1617/School-Program-Catalog-2016-2017.pdf
