This year's Young Docents event will take place on Wednesday, May 10 from 6-8 p.m. at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA). The Young Docents is a program that began last school year with Mrs. Heather Brown's Advanced Art 2 class at Peekskill High School in collaboration with HVCCA. Throughout the school year, students have been exposed to the process of being a docent. This event is a culmination of a year's worth of research, planning and learning about the art pieces at the museum. Please come out and support our student docents as they provide tours of the museum and discuss works of art during this time.
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.
