Ms. Hawthorne was appointed at the April 5 Board of Education meeting and will assume her new role on July 1, 2022, upon the retirement of PCSD’s current Assistant Superintendent for Business, Ms. Robin Zimmerman.

He spent the more significant portion of his life dedicated to education and service as a teacher in the New Jersey Public School System, his daughter's path has now continued his legacy. In a home full of love, and as the youngest of four children, Ms. Hawthorne and her brothers understood the importance of education, perseverance, and community. Notably, his life examples instilled in them the importance of leveraging resources and collaborating on care initiatives to benefit the community. In her career in education, Ms. Hawthorne is committed to similar pursuits. She hopes to provide the students of Peekskill with the resources and opportunities they require and that they deserve. Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Ms. Hawthorne is a proud alumna of the New York City Public school system. She received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Lehman College.

  • BOCES Names Peekskill’s Mikhail Militarev March Student of Distinction

    Mikhail Militarev, a student from the Peekskill City School District, was named PNW BOCES' Student of Distinction for the month of March. Mikhail attends BOCES’ Fox Meadow High School where he is described by his teacher as “polite, courteous and caring.” “He is an amazing kid, a huge history buff,” says teacher Peter Iandiorio. He is also a hardworking student, who “speaks fluent English and Russian with a broad interest and knowledge of different languages and cultures,” says Fox Meadow’s interim principal Michael Sowul. Mikhail attended BOCES’ Walden School before moving up to Fox Meadow, which, his mother Elena Yakovleva says, has been a “very good experience; everything is perfect.” “He loves BOCES and Fox Meadow; he loves all the teachers and the atmosphere, and he feels like he’s loved,” she says. Yakovleva says Mikhail has a huge interest in learning. “He loves human history and prehistory, languages, (he taught himself Mongolian and Chinese) and ethnic music.” It’s this enthusiasm for learning that Mikhail brings to his Fox Meadow classroom. “On a regular basis, he infuses his broad knowledge and inquisitive nature into classroom discussion,” says Mr. Sowul. “In many ways he is an exemplar for our model student.” Click here to read more!
