The Peekskill City School District is excited to announce that our websites will have a new look coming this school year! Our new responsive website templates will provide viewers easier access to information no matter what device they are using, be it a desktop, mobile device and/or tablet! In an effort to keep information consistent with its current placement on the website, most site information will be structured the same, with a few homepage design improvements for quicker access to information. We understand that even minor website changes can be confusing to some, especially at the beginning of the school year when users are most likely to be frequenting the sites.

School may be out for summer vacation, but that didn’t stop a dedicated group of Peekskill High School Robotics students from showing up to their classroom to build and program their own drones. From June 23 until July 7, students from both PHS’ Robotics and Advanced Robotics classes met with PHS Robotics Teacher Mr. Carlo Vindrini from 7:15 a.m. – 1 p.m. every day. The students involved in the summer project completed a STEM Drones curriculum earlier this year, and used the knowledge they gained from their class to construct four drones, two Quad-copters and two hex-copters completely from scratch.
