Student Government Elections 2010 at the Roosevelt Island School (P.S./I.S. 217)

Middle school students will elect Student Government members for the school year of 2010/11 today, October 25th.  7th and 8th grade students competed for the positions of "school president", "school vice-president", and "secretary" during debates lead by Social Studies teacher Mr. Ulmann this morning.  Alex, Autumn, Imane, Mohamed, Salman, Shahinda, Tamala, and Zulissa gave their speeches, trying to persuade their classmates to vote for them.  All candidates stressed importance of the Middle school fundraising, and promised to work with the school administration and the PTA to bring in more sport events and field trips for the Middle school students.  More photos here.

7th and 8th grade students are travelling to Philadelphia on Friday, November 12th.  This week they will sell "Halloweengrams" - silly messages with attached candy bags, - in the school hallways.  The Halloweengrams are only $1 each, so please, stop by on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, and support Middle school students' fundraising efforts!
