If you see a photo of a lighthouse on the front of a classroom door inside one of Peekskill’s schools, it’s not for simple decoration. It’s a symbol of the dedication and learning going on behind the door. CLick on the headline above to learn how Peekskill's Literacy Leaders are "lighting" the way for their students.
At Hillcrest Elementary, young scientists in Ms. Rice’s classroom were able model the process of digestion through a lab activity called, "Plastic Bag Digestion." With the help of this hands-on activity, which was created by Ms. Rice, the students were able to better understand how the human digestive system works.
Hillcrest artists recently had a chance to show off their skills at the school's Family Paint Night, which was led by art teacher Taylor Coleman. The event was part of the Hangin' at Hillcrest series that features a variety of monthly activities for students and their families.
