A message for Attendance Awareness
County Executive George Latimer, Ossining UFSD Superintendent Ray Sanchez and Student Advocacy recorded a PSA earlier in the school year regarding the importance of excellent attendance. Please listen:
The New York State Education Department is requiring that school districts develop an AIS policy for the 2016/2017 school year. This policy must include a second measure and must be uniformly applied to all grade levels. Please see attached for more details.
School Clubs are a wonderful way to be a part of the Pocantico community.
Here are some clubs that are offered at our school.
School Newspaper "The Hawk"
"The Hawk" is the school’s student-run eight-page newspaper, professionally printed three times a year and distributed to every student in the school. Its mission is to promote a positive school spirit, highlighting school-related events and projects, and strengthening the school-community connection. Our student reporters update live onto our school website so you don't have to wait for a print issue to read the latest Poco news! Check out our page!
In every issue, "The Hawk" features articles on district initiatives, school-wide assemblies, classroom events, trips, and sports, as well as reviews, interviews, advice and helpful tips.

Hark! Pocantico's Online Literary Magazine
Hark! is the school’s online student-run literary magazine designed for students to showcase their artwork, poems, short stories, essays, and personal narratives. We run a monthly edition and encourage all students to submit their work via the Weebly site. Our goal is to celebrate the diverse voices and creative talents of the Pocantico student body. Editors, grades 5-8, meet in room 202 every Tuesday to review submissions and manage the Hark! Website.
In every edition, the Hark! “shout outs” a Pocantico writer/artist who has contributed positively to our creative community.
