  • These pages are the combined efforts of
     Ron Abbey (‘40) ~ Lynn Abbey (‘66)

    February 2016 -- We’ve had a “changing of the guard” here at the alumni
    pages. In late December, my dad, Ron Abbey (‘40) suffered a retinal
    hemorrhage that left him unable to continue to maintain the PHS alumni
    website. The website is now my responsiblity. I’ve begun capturing
    messages sent to and will make the updates.

    Click on the links on the left for Yearbook class pictures and
    e-mail addresses for individual graduating classes in the
  • “Class Directories” Section
  • The All Graduates link contains, in alphabetical order,
    Over 13,200 names and the year of graduation of the PHS alumni

     If you want to change your email address or edit your entry
    in your class directory go to Let Us Know
  • There are Pictures, pictures, pictures
    in the Picture Galleries
    Check out “Reunions”. Your class may be planning a reunion,
    and if not why don’t YOU get one started!! Take it from those that have,
    you will enjoy a memorable event for the rest of your life
  • Remember those “Fallen Heroes” classmates
     who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II - Korea - Viet Nam
    If you have anything to add please let us know

Hail to our colors
Ne’er shall they fade
While ‘neath our banners
Heroes are made
Always we’ll love her
Ever we’ll be true
To dear old Peekskill
And the Crimson Blue

Words written in 1932 by Edwin Steckel,
music teacher and bandmaster

(If anyone can create a music CD of our song, we will be happy to include the music/video on these pages)
