Students in Woodside Elementary’s RISE program have been studying our Earth and the outer space surrounding it, so of course it was only fitting for the group of children to take a trip to Peekskill High School’s planetarium yesterday to learn even more about these topics! After enjoying the short educational film, “Earth’s Wild Ride” in the planetarium, Woodside students were greeted by high schoolers who then took the children on a tour of the PHS building. The older students walked the children through the halls and paused to show the Woodsiders their lockers. Once the tour was complete, the two groups of students worked together on planetary themed crafts. Click on the headline to read more about this story.
Woodside students recently spent time touring the Manhattanville College campus in Purchase, NY. The college, which partners with the Peekskill City School District to offer professional development, welcomed the children to tour the school’s library, lecture halls, art studio, science labs, dorms and the student center. Woodsiders also enjoyed lunch in Manhattanville’s historic Reid Castle. The trip was part of the Peekskill City School District’s initiative to instill the idea of college early in students’ academic careers.
Congratulations to the following Woodside and Oakside students who received the Southeastern Zone Physical Education Award, which is awarded to students in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Dutchess counties who exemplify what physical education is about. The students selected demonstrate excellent sportsmanship, citizenship, physical fitness/health and cooperation in their physical education classes. Special thanks to PE Teachers Tim Murphy and Sean Dwyer for facilitating these nominations and getting our students recognized.
