  • Thank You To Our Parent Volunteers (Parent Association)

    From Parent Coordinator Mr. Leader 

     

    Hello PGMS Team and Family:

     
    I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible parent volunteers of the Parent Association of Pelham Gardens Middle School (PA of PGMS).  They have attended most, if not all, monthly Title I, Parent Association and School Leadership Team Meetings, they have supported my Family Workshops and they have given time, money and resources towards creating family events such as the CPR Class, The We Are Family Dance, The Valentines Day Candy Bags, the awesome Talent Show and the first annual Block Party.  
     
    A lot of the incredible memories from this past school year would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication and passion of our parent volunteers. They have consistently worked towards adding more family oriented events to our already wonderful school culture. 
     
    Please recognize and give your appreciation to the following parents (from left to right in photo):

    I would like to sincerely thank these parents for all they have done in the 2016-2017 school year. I look forward to what the 2017-2018 school year will bring.  Also, I would like to send a big shout out to our PA President Letecia Stewart for not just taking on the role and responsibilities of president when she was elected in May 2016, but for also taking pride in the position (to which she was recently re-elected).  Thank you Ms. Stewart.
     
     
    PA of PGMS, You Rock!!!

  • It's So Hard To Say Goodbye

    PGMS is sad to announce that the following staff members will not be returning with us in September:

    Ms. Debra Hendry, Teacher

    Dr. Edmond Adjapong, Teacher

    After June 2017, they will have moved on from Pelham Gardens Middle School and onto different ventures in their respective lives.  Would like send a huge THANK YOU to Ms. Dellipaoli, Mr. Hendry and Dr. Adjapong for their service to Pelham Gardens Middle School and our students.  They will truly be missed, but will always be a part of the PGMS Family.

  • Congratulations to the heart and effort of our team from MS. WILLIAMS

    Congratulations Mr. Dennis and the entire Varsity team.  You had a great season! Thank you Mr Dennis for loving our boys into an awesome team. Thank you for instilling in each of them a sense of brotherhood on and off the court.
    You never lose when you play with integrity and heart ❤️!

    Shout to everyone who supported this team and their love of basketball! Your late nights cheering the boys on long after your work day was done is noted and deeply appreciated.

    Thank you to coaches Kuschman/Madden and A.P. Biernat for keeping the fees paid, the uniforms clean and the paperwork up to date.

    A job well done.
