  • Oakside Students Welcome Special Guest for Studies on Colombia

    Grade 3 Oakside students in Ms. Nancy Castro’s class have recently been studying the country of Colombia. Ms. Castro had the idea to invite Peekskill High School’s Mrs. Maria Gordineer, a Colombian native, to the elementary classroom to share her first hand experiences and knowledge of the country with the children. This week, Mrs. Gordineer stopped by Ms. Castro’s class to give a presentation, tell stories and even share some traditional Colombian lollipops and coconut candy with the third graders. Mrs. Gordineer also brought some traditional Colombian clothing for Ms. Castro to model for her class. The students had a great time with their special guest!
