Peekskill Middle School students in Mr. Tabone and Mr. Shropshire’s Core-X class represented PKMS admirably on their recent trip to the United Nations. The field trip served as the culmination of the class’ exploration into the many refugee crises around the world. Students had the opportunity to meet with Chief of Migration Bela Hovy in the UN offices. Mr. Hovy was kind enough to take some time from his day to talk to the students about his experiences working in the division and in refugee camps, and answered students’ questions, which they had prepared prior to the trip.

Peekskill High School art students recently had the opportunity to work with emerging British artist Paula Akpan. Akpan has teamed up with fellow artist Harriet Evans to produce an exhibition entitled, “I’m Tired,” which is currently on display at Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Arts. The “I’m Tired” project focuses on the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggression, assumptions and stereotypes through the personal stories of their subjects.
