  • Oakside's "Out of this World" Literacy Kick-off

    Oakside students are reaching for the stars and have accepted a challenge to read 10,000 books by the end of the school year! To kick-off their literacy initiative, the school put on a play which embraced this year's theme, "Reading Takes You Out of This World." Student actors and actresses showed their peers the amazing power of books by recreating imaginative scenes from familiar stories. Special thanks goes out to The Oakside Reading Team teachers (Tara Tierney, Beth Irving and Christine Hirsch) for organizing the event, and to the day's guest actors Principal Staci Woodley and Superintendent Dr. David Mauricio.

  • Origami Artists Bring a Message of Peace to Peekskill High School

    On Friday, September 21, in honor of World Peace Day, strings of hand-folded paper birds were displayed in the trees outside of Peekskill High School. This art project is the product of a collaborative effort between students in PHS Art classes who recently learned about the life of Sadako Sasaki. Sadako lived in Hiroshima at the time of the atomic bombing, and in memory of her story, PHS art classes created over 1,000 paper cranes. In addition to constructing the paper birds, students wrote their dreams, hopes and wishes inside of their cranes as well. Click on the headline to read more on this story.
