    Mr. Purificato



    Hi, my name is Scott Purificato and I am so excited to be your child's First-Grade Teacher for the upcoming school year! This year will be filled with lots of new things to help your children become independent, critical thinkers and curious learners! From Science, Math, and Reading to building groups with shared ideas and solutions this year will be filled with growing and gaining new confidence within their selves as well as each other.  First grade is where children build skills academically as well as socially. I look forward to seeing your child's growth and sharing those stories with you. 

    If you ever need to reach out to me you can please do so by contacting me in any of the following ways! Write me a note, send it with your child to school, or you can email me at spurificato@peekskillschools.org.  You may also reach me by calling Woodside at 914-739-0093. 

    Thank you for all of your support! I look forward to another successful year!
