• In keeping with our District’s whole child approach to education, the Peekskill City Schools has adopted monthly district-wide themes to promote character education and social emotional learning. A whole child approach to education ensures that students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. The monthly themes noted below support the following NYS Education Department’s Social Emotional Learning Goals:

    • Develop self-awareness and self-management skills essential to success in school and in life
    • Use social awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships
    • Demonstrate ethical decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in personal, school, and community contexts

    Please see below for a list of monthly themes which will inspire school activities, literature and more.
