Oakside students recently received a special visit from Peekskill High School’s creative writing students. The teenagers visited the youngsters and read aloud to them in small groups. Children were excited to have some time to bond with, “the big kids,” and PHS students enjoyed helping to foster a love of reading in their younger counterparts. Special thanks to Mrs. Jennifer Telesco for sharing these photos with us!
