Peekskill Middle School students in Mr. Tabone and Mr. Shropshire’s Core-X class represented PKMS admirably on their recent trip to the United Nations. The field trip served as the culmination of the class’ exploration into the many refugee crises around the world. Students had the opportunity to meet with Chief of Migration Bela Hovy in the UN offices. Mr. Hovy was kind enough to take some time from his day to talk to the students about his experiences working in the division and in refugee camps, and answered students’ questions, which they had prepared prior to the trip.

Peekskill Middle School students in Mr. Tabone and Mr. Shropshire’s Core-X class recently had the chance to approach poetry in a whole new way…through cooking. Thanks to Newburgh chef Mike Kelly of Liberty Street Bistro, students got a hands-on experience and learned how cooking, much like writing poetry, involves passion, emotion and creativity.

Peekskill Middle School students recently took part in “Peace, Love & Respect” week during the month of February. Students participated in activities that focused on the importance of non-violence, respect and kindness and were reminded that words and actions have the ability to have a negative or positive effect on others. Students did a great job of causing a “chain reaction of kindness” and spreading positivity around the school community.
