Great Expectations: Men Making a Difference in the Lives of Children
Amazing evening filled with much emotion and joy. We are so proud of our staff, students, male-role models, families, and community for their support and input into this event. Frederick Douglass once said, "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." This event was part of the solution and a step forward as it relates to, "being the change we want to see in the world," Gandhi. Thank you to all our staff that provided expertise, time, and positive voice. Below is a powerpoint requested for your enjoyment/fun. Be well, thank you all again, and take care of each other.
In an effort to help the community in which they live and serve, the Peekskill City School District’s custodial staff received a donation of 20 turkeys on Monday from their local Stop & Shop Supermarket. The turkeys were part of a collaborative effort between the custodial staff and each of the district’s six schools to construct Thanksgiving dinner baskets for Peekskill families.
Peekskill Middle School’s first annual Great Expectations: Men Making a Difference night featured a variety of workshops, activities and games, invited all male figures to join their child or student for a night of collaborations and connections, followed by dinner and dessert in the school’s cafeteria.
The plaque was presented to the Board of Education “with sincere gratitude and appreciation” for housing BOCES’ Special Education Summer School Program at Peekskill Middle School over the summer while the program’s BOCES building underwent construction.
