McKee HS Students Tour Digital Edge


45 students from McKee HS visited Digital Edge in Bloomfield in Staten Island. It was an eye opening experience that provided opportunities for our students to make connections between the content studied at McKee in the CISCO Networking Academy class and the real world.


Senior Awards Night - June 11, 2014

It's Senior Awards at McKee High School, June 11, 2014, right before the last award of the evening. It was time for a little activity and I felt that as the principal, who has shaky hands and is possibly the worst photographer in the world, when would I have such a clear opportunity to take a photo. I used my Ipad out and had the honorees flash their pearly whites and awards.
The class of 2014 applauded all who received awards with fervor and enthusiasm.
