    Parents/Guardians:

    Welcome Parents and Students.  As an educator I have always felt that it takes a village to help mold and guide students to reach their full potential.  It takes  the student, parent, and teacher to each do their part to ensure that your child is successful.  Our goal as a school is to raise our graduation rate to 87% as well as have students increasing their regent results by 5%.  This goal will only be reached if we all do our part to make this happen.  I look forward to working with you so that your child will have a positive learning experience this year.  Please feel free to e-mail me at rpotillo@peekskillschools.org to request being added to Google classroom.  This will allow you to see weekly assignments that are due or assignments that are missing.  Extra help is always available daily either before (7:40-8:00 a.m.), after school (2:46-3:00) in room 210 or virtually by request.
     
    Do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or by calling the school at 914-737-0201.  
     
    Thank you.
    Mr. Potillo

    Classroom / Behavior / Attendance Expectations

      • Log onto their classes each and every day where attendance will be taken.  Students are expected to stay in the class for the entire period and engage in the lesson.
