On Tuesday, November 15, award winning author Thanhhà Lai came to Peekskill Middle School to talk about her life and her books with PKMS students. The students, who recently completed reading Lai’s novel, “Inside Out and Back Again,” listened as Lai told her own life’s story which inspired the book. Lai was born in Viêt Nam and relocated to Montgomery, Alabama as a war refugee in 1975. Students also had the opportunity to take part in a question and answer session with Lai during her visit.
On Tuesday, September 20, the Peekskill City School District joined other schools in Westchester County and across the nation in “Dads Take Your Child to School Day.” This is the third year that Peekskill has participated in the initiative, and it was the District’s most successful year ever. A total of 574 father figures, (which included dads, brothers, uncles, grandpas and even a few females), turned out to accompany their students to school. That’s approximately 170 more participants than last year’s campaign drew.
