PMS student council sticks with it, running events and raising funds in spite of pandemic

Things have changed at Pelham Middle School, but as always the staff and the student council continue to work hard to keep the school a safe and fun place. Student council has had spirit weeks and fundraisers and other exciting and fun activities are planned for the school year.

“We raised over $4,000 through Meadow Farms, and the money will go towards all middle school clubs and virtual field trips, as well as hopeful future in-person field trips,” said Kira Findikyan, president of the PMS student council.

The student council was in the process of putting together a mask designing contest but shifted to other activities.

The council has discussed holding virtual movie nights, dances and maybe even a talent show. It is hard to plan given the circumstances of Covid-19.

“We have a couple things planned for the spring, such as a possible pull-up-a-chair outdoor-movie night, and possibly another type of fundraiser,” said Taya Senerchia, seventh grade senator.

The student council will continue to plan fun activities and fundraisers for this year.

“Students in Pelham Middle School are very artistic, so we may do a sticker sign contest and have students decide what stickers they like the most,” said Caitlin McGovern, sixth grade senator.
