  • PHS PACE Students Practice Team Building while Hiking Blue Mountain

    Students in Peekskill High School's PACE program recently summited Blue Mountain, crossing flooded paths and helping to support one another as they went. From the summit, some continued to challenge themselves and others by racing back to base camp at Depew Park. Others that did not take part in the hike instead chose to collectively complete in a science scavenger hunt throughout Depew Park and Blue Mountain. After completing the scavenger hunt students participated in team building activities. A couple of parents also showed up at the park to say hello.

  • 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.
