Led by their teacher Mr. Shropshire, Grade 7 math students at Peekskill Middle School recently took a field trip to DaSilva’s Deli to help reinforce some math lessons that they have been working on in the classroom. Sierra Longbranch, Jason Uguna, Brian Quizhpi, Edward Bermeo, Jordan Wilson and Kelly Soliz tested themselves in the real world by calculating percentages and tax to figure out the final cost of a few tasty snack items. The students’ challenge was to earn the snacks they chose by working together to correctly calculate the grand total.
Over 100 Peekskill students in Grade 5 and Grade 8 recently spent two days at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall where they had the opportunity to enjoy the music of the New York Philharmonic as part of the venue’s Young People's Concerts for Schools series.

Thanks to Frank Bucci at Peekskill Middle School for sharing this video of our PKMS students engaging in an "Hour of Code" to celebrate National Computer Science Week. The purpose of the HOC program is to "demystify" the coding process and show students that "anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator or an innovator."

Our Peekskill Middle School chorus students were invited to sing with Daisy Jopling at her concert this past weekend. They performed, "We Are the World" from their seats as Daisy and her band played along. This song was chosen to pay tribute to Paris, and all of the other parts of the world that are hurting right now. In addition to asking our students to perform with her, Daisy also invited our Grade 3 string students to come enjoy the concert for free. Special thanks to Daisy Jopling and Crystal Hernandez for coordinating this event, and to the Paramount Hudson Valley for hosting.
