Mr. Lewis' Welcome Back Letter
Important Message Regarding 2017-18 L.E.A.P
As some of you may be aware based off our announcement at the June 20 Board of Education meeting, we are sorry to announce that our District was not awarded the state's 21st Century Grant for the 2017-2018 school year. In the past, these funds made the PKMS L.E.A.P. program possible. While we will be unable to provide an extensive after school program such as was previously offered, we are currently examining our options for a variety of other after school activities to further enhance our students’ experiences. We will post more information regarding these activities once plans have been finalized. At this time, please remember to plan your fall schedules accordingly to reflect this change. You may check back shortly for updates.
*Please note this will NOT effect Modified sports. Modified sports will still be offered.

Twenty Peekskill Middle School eighth graders, along with their chaperones PKMS Teachers Amy Marrero and Renee Kearse, were recently offered the opportunity to take a day trip to Capital One Bank in Suffern, NY. The trip was made possible thanks to a partnership program between Capital One and Junior Achievement, which teaches middle school students financial responsibility.

On Tuesday May 16, 27 Grade 8 STEM and Technology students were given the opportunity to visit the Microsoft Store in White Plains, NY. Through a partnership with Junior Achievement, these students learned a great deal about the Microsoft Company and also completed a job shadow. PKMS students had the chance to listen to speakers from five different positions within the company and ask questions about their day to day operations. After listening to speakers, students then had the opportunity to use Microsoft Surface laptops to complete coding challenges before touring the Microsoft store.
Peekskill Middle School eighth graders in Ms. Brown’s accelerated ceramics class and Mrs. Roldan’s accelerated studio art class had the opportunity to work with local artist, Joe Pimentel during the week of April 24. Thanks to the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art's Artist in Residency program, Pimentel was able to join the students, and together, the group created a mural of mandalas that will be included in an upcoming show at HVCCA from September 16 -October 1, 2017, before being permanently installed on the second floor of the middle school.
Peekskill Middle School recently hosted its 4th Annual Men’s Night celebrations, inviting male roll models of every relation to accompany their students to PKMS for a night of fun and games. Over 100 students and adults came out to enjoy themselves and share in some bonding time together. Click on the headline above to read more about this event and to see a photo album from the evening.
