Westchester’s Kids Speak Up: Q&As with Local Students from Kindergarten to High School

Want to know what your children are really thinking about school and social media, drinking and drugs, best friends and bullying? We asked them and they answered.



Summer vacay is dwindling down to its last precious weeks and the sacred Annual School Supply Scavenger Hunt is well underway. (What? You haven’t gotten your reinforced loose-leaf paper and No. 2 pencils yet? Finish reading and head to the nearest superstore, pronto!) Most parents and, yes, some of their kids, are looking forward to the start of the new school year (hey, even playing Xbox LIVE and Instagramming endless selfies gets old by August). So, what better time to meet a cross-section of Westchester’s students—one in each grade—ranging from an oh-so-cute incoming kindergartner to a savvy high school senior?
