Oakside students, teachers and parents recently ventured out to Peekskill’s Riverfront Green Park to help clean up the area as part of the school’s community service activity. Though the weather wasn’t ideal, nothing could discourage the clean-up crew from staying focused on their task.
Congratulations to our Oakside Elementary’s SuperReaders who recently accomplished their third quarter reading goal of 6,000 books! To celebrate their accomplishment, the school kicked-off their “Spring Training” event, which allowed students to spend the day participating in games that would help build their superpowers of balance, speed, agility, following directions, being careful and teamwork.
In celebration of February being Dental Health Month, The Peekskill City School District teamed up with Hudson River Health Care to host the school’s first Annual Dental Health Fair at Oakside Elementary on February 25. The school has offered a Dental Sealant Program for almost 30 years and this year wanted to expand on student’s awareness of the importance of proper dental health. The Dental Fair was coordinated by Oakside staff, as well as Arlene Swanlie, a Certified Dental Assistant and Ivette Alicea, a Registered Dental Hygienist, both of HRHC Peekskill. Dr. Clifford Hames, the supervising dentist for the Dental Sealant Program at HRHC also joined in the day’s fun. Click on the headline for more on this story.
Oakside students and their family members celebrated “The POWer of Working Together” at a recent literacy workshop which featured the school’s Superhero Reading Team. At the event, student volunteers read original poems about the power of reading and spoke about the different locations they enjoyed books, such as school, home or even the grocery store. Adult attendees also had the chance to practice reading exercises to do at home with students. Click on the headline above to read more about the evening's events.
