The Oakside S.W.A.T Team is a group of third graders who are learning the basic functions of computers by studying the machines' different components and hardware pieces. Recently, the team took a break from studying computers to host a Science Fair at the school. Thank you to Oakside Tech TA Ms. Denise Chavarria for sharing these photos of the event with us.
If you see a photo of a lighthouse on the front of a classroom door inside one of Peekskill’s schools, it’s not for simple decoration. It’s a symbol of the dedication and learning going on behind the door. CLick on the headline above to learn how Peekskill's Literacy Leaders are "lighting" the way for their students.
On Friday, February 17, Oakside’s “Construction Company” accepted the task of creating a school-wide snow day to help students celebrate collectively reading over 5,000 books so far this year. To kick-off the fun, the event invited students and teachers to do what most do on a typical snow day- that is, stay in their pajamas all day. Teachers catered lessons to the theme and included “snowy” activities to help build students’ literacy, math, and science skills throughout the celebration. In the library, students found books about snow specially displayed, while in gym class they enjoyed taking part in modified snowball fights. In music, songs about snow were sung.
