Recently, I conducted a survey of PHS students and staff. I was curious as how they spent their time, what activities they participate in, if they made the honor or high honor role, and how they felt about upcoming holidays. These are their responses:

 

Lisana Burnett – 11th grade

The best part of Peekskill High School is the girls’ basketball team. After school I attend basketball practice or just go home. I feel very confident on making the honor roll because I do all my work, attend callback and check in with my teachers on a daily basis. Thanksgiving is coming up and there is so much I’m thankful for. I’m thankful that I’m healthy and alive and very healthy.

 

Angelina Cardoso – 9th grade

To me the best part of PHS is the library. After school I go home. I feel confident on making the honor roll because I do all my work, I participate, I attend callback and I make sure to always do my homework. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m thankful for my life, family and supporting friends. My favorite food is pizza.

 

Ms. Torp – Librarian

The best part of PHS is the students and teachers. After school I do the Elton Brand Academy. I belly dance at 4:15pm on Thursdays! Thanksgiving is coming up and there’s so much I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for my job. I’m also thankful for getting to be the librarian at PHS; it is truly the best. My favorite food is tacos!

 

Kevin Rodriguez – 10th grade

The best part of PHS to me is the fact that I get to go outside during lunch. After school I go home. I feel confident on making honor roll because I always do my work and I leave the school learning something new every day. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m very excited. I’m thankful for my friends, and my wonderful family in my life. My favorite food is Italian.

 

Cyasia Crosland – 12th grade

The best part of PHS is Spirit Day. After school I go home. I’m not so confident that I made the honor roll. I felt as if I didn’t apply myself or put in any effort towards it. Thanksgiving is coming up and I am thankful for many things. There are many blessings in my life to which I am thankful for. My favorite food is fried chicken.

 

Ms. Skrivanek – Math teacher

The best part of PHS is the students, duh! After school I coach AAU basketball, or I work out at Snap fitness. Thanksgiving is coming up and there’s a lot I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for my health, my family and my friends. My favorite food of course is dessert, specifically cookies.

 

Tiena Cureton – 12th grade

The best part of PHS is the security. Sometimes after school I work part time. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m thankful for my mother and myself. My favorite food is ham.

 

Tania Chunch – 12th grade

The best part of PHS would be the fact that there are teachers that really care about you, want the best for you and just treat you like family. After school I usually go home or sometimes I’ll go to work. I feel very confident on making honor roll because I think I’m an excellent student and I do all of my work. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m mainly thankful for my wonderful family. My favorite food would be pizza.

 

Romeo Apodaca – 9th grade

The best part of PHS is the school library. After school I go home and take a nap. I feel confident on making the honor roll because I am pretty smart and I’m very much focused during school. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m thankful for my life, my family and my close friends. My favorite food is pizza.

 

Nikeji Barger – 11th grade

The best part of PHS is the sports because I am an athlete. After school I have practice and then I go home to do homework. I’m not sure if I feel confident on making the honor roll because there’s a part of me that says I could have done much better and worked harder. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m thankful for everyone and everything in my life. My favorite food is rice.

 

Jaden Crespo – Security guard

The best part of PHS is the security because of course I’m a security guard. Also the sense of the community within the building is the best. After school I either pick up my dog Rex or go home. Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m thankful for my family and my good health. My favorite food is everything that’s served at Thanksgiving dinner.
