School News

Several students from Pleasant Hills Middle School were recognized at the October 24, 2017 school board meeting.

Pictured are (l-r): Dani Alisesky; Katie Cunningham; Erin Hurst; Ava Korshlak; Alyssa McCormick; Shanice McNeil; Jillian Piscitelli; Emma Ratner; Kaylee Rehak; Christine Rossi; Annali Thomas; and Carly Woods.

Principal Dan Como introduced this year’s Student Council officers and they spoke about all the positive things happening at the middle school. So far this year, students and staff organized a hurricane relief fundraiser raising over $1,700 in one week. Student Council is now leading the way for the annual food drive through individual student collections, the staff v. student volleyball game, and three grade-level pancake breakfasts.

Principal Como also introduced the founders of a brand new organization at the middle school this year – The Kindness Project. To support the district core values of empathy, respect and integrity, 7th graders Jillian Piscitelli and Emma Ratner formed The Kindness Project along with a committee of students whose sole objective is to promote kindness and make PHMS a better place for all students.

The committee delivers hand-written notes containing random acts of kindness. Students are encouraged to perform these random acts of kindness as many times as they can during the course of the school week and watch as their acts of kindness spread and positively affect others!

Members of the Kindness Project delivered their special notes to all of the School Board Members. Congratulations, and thank you, to the following PHMS students for all that you do to help others and promote kindness! You are truly an inspiration for all of us!
