Maintaining a rigorous academic climate that prepares our entire student to succeed in a competitive global workforce requires us to systematically assess our school-level programs and services. We are asking for you and your child’s participation in a New York State Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) Survey launching on April 29, 2015. The survey aligns with the six tenets of the DTSDE and satisfies state requirements for designated focus schools.

On Saturday, April 25, 2015, the Poughkeepsie City School Districts Modified, Junior Varsity and Varsity softball teams participated in the 4th Annual Anti-Bullying Walk-a-thon Speak Up, Speak Out, You Matter! at the Walkway over the Hudson. The purpose of the walk-a-thon is to raise awareness about bullying prevention, intervention and is sponsored by the Mediation Center of Dutchess County. The young ladies walked/ran as a team to end the silence. These student-athletes gained knowledge about improving peer relations and making our school a safer place, a more positive place for students to learn and grow. With the help of the Poughkeepsie community, teaching staff, and Coaches Martin, Petrosino and Jolly, the teams surpassed their fundraising goal, raising a total of $460 for the well deserving community organization.
