May 19 COVID-19 Update

Dr. Champ

Dear Pelham Parents and Community Members,

Throughout this period of Distance Learning, our teachers have sought to develop different ways to engage students and their families within the remote environment. With that in mind, I'm excited to share a Virtual Escape Room Challenge for our students in grades 6-12 (younger students are welcome to try as well with help from their parents or older siblings). The challenge, organized by our math department, will test students' problem-solving skills and hopefully provide a little family fun. When the time comes, don't forget to Tell em' you're from _____!" Once you complete the escape room, take a picture of yourself with the certificate and send it to your math teacher. 

Over the course of the next few weeks, there will be a number of virtual events that we hope you can "attend." These include the PMHS Storyteller's Celebration on June 11 and the High School Senior Awards Ceremony on June 15. We will share more information, including links to view these events in the coming weeks. 

Please enjoy a pleasant evening.

Sincerely,

Cheryl H. Champ

Superintendent of Schools
