    Due to personal reasons, our elected Parent Association President is no longer able to fulfill the duties of position.  Therefore, our elected Vice-President Dejonae Pettaway (6th Grade Parent) will hold the seat of President by succession as per the PA bylaws.

    We would like to thank Ms. Pettaway for her willingness to step up as President and wish her success in her new role.

  • The Elections Were A Huge Success!!!

    Last night's Parent Association (Expedited) Elections were a huge success.  Not only were we able to fill all mandatory positions, we were also able to fill a position that has not been held by anyone since 2015.  

    We would like to first thank all of the parents who attended last night's election meeting and helped to make it such a success.  We could not have achieved this success without you.  Next, we want to thank our Elections Chairperson Shannon Cruz and Election Note Taker Sophia Olivero.  We literally could not have conducted our elections without your courage to assume your respective roles.  Last but not least, we would like to congratulate the four parents who were unanimously elected to their respective positions and now form our Parent Association Executive Board.  Let's please recognize: 

    - Sophia Henry - Parent Association President

    - Steffanie Bonilla - Parent Association Treasurer

    - Lashandra Francis - Parent Association Secretary

    - Paris Pettaway - Parent Association Vice President

    We look forward to working with these ladies and seeing what great things they have in store for the Pelham Gardens Middle School community.
