  • Hillcrest Students Participate in BASF's "You Be the Chemist" Challenge

    We want to once again acknowledge our Peekskill Middle School and Hillcrest students who participated in the BASF “You Be the Chemist” Local Challenge Round Competition on Saturday, March 14, 2015 in Tarrytown, NY. Three of our students made it to round 5 out of the 6 challenge rounds, which are similar in format to spelling bees and quiz bowls.

  • Hillcrest Students Raise Over $8K for St. Jude's Through Math-a-Thon

    Students at Hillcrest Elementary recently participated in the St. Jude's Math-a-Thon where they helped raise money for the children of St. Jude by completing math work on their grade level, which was provided to them by the cause. Students collected donations, hoping to raise $500. The school surpassed that goal by raising over $8,000! Ms. Flores’ 4th Grade class raised over $1,000 alone. Other top contributors included fifth grader Biagio Vermandois ($300), fourth grader Sean Sniffen ($330), and fourth grader Lila Feder ($500). Way to go Hillcrest!

  • New PCSD Elementary Enrichment Program Focuses on All Students' Academic Needs

    The Peekskill City School District introduced a new Elementary Enrichment program for Grades K-5 in the 2014-2015 school year to help address the unique needs of every child. Thanks to the initiative, teachers at PCSD have recently reported a higher level of student engagement since the program began. In addition, as they enter the second half of the school year, students continue to show genuine excitement about being part of an interdisciplinary program that aligns and enriches the curriculum.
