Congratulations to Peekskill Board of Education members Maria Pereira, Lisa Aspinall-Kellawon, Michael Simpkins, Colin Smith and Douglas Glickert who were honored by the New York State School Board Association’s "School Board U" Recognition Program at a recent Board meeting on February 24.
Members of the Peekskill High School Debate Club, in conjunction with the PHS Student Council, held a public debate this week regarding Peekskill's Red Devil mascot. Students discussed many issues surrounding the topic, including the portrayal of the mascot in illustrated form, the notion of school tradition and the seperation of church and state. We thank our student panel for their efforts and also thank the students and community members who attended and voiced their opinions at the event.
PCSD applauds Peekskill High School students Matthew Adams, Ricardo Archila and Jovan Tucker who recently took part in the City of Peekskill’s Bipartisan Youth Mentor Program, which aims to develop civic leadership and critical thinking skills in students interested in learning about governance.
At a Peekskill Board of Education meeting on January 20, Mr. Daniel Callahan was appointed by the Board to the position of Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education. Callahan will assume this role on July 1, 2015 when Dr. David Fine, the District’s current Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education, takes over the District’s superintendency.
