    We have started our G.R.E.A.T. civics program in partnership with the Peekskill Police Department.  This important program teaches decision-making strategies to our students.
    Your child has been provided with a Planner that is used to write assignments and help organize study time.
    Students keep a class notebook for notes and writing assignments. Extra credit assignments can be completed to help increase your child's grade.
