A total of 11 PHMS students were recognized by the Board, including seven for their efforts with the annual food drive: Lucas Gisler, Dylan Hart, Riley Marlow, Mycah McCabe, Lila Moresea, Josh Tarpey and Cooper Waterman. Each of the students lauded for the food drive donated at least 50 items. Approximately 9,500 lbs. of food was donated to the food bank at the Olivet United Presbyterian Church in West Elizabeth earlier this month, with PHMS students and staff loading and unloading the donations.

The PHMS Student Council Officers were also recognized and provided the Board with an update on some recent school events, including the “Tribute to the Troops” Veterans Day salute, the 8th grade class trip to the Flight 93 Memorial and the food drive. The 2022-23 PHMS Student Council Officers are:  RJ Handshue, President; Delaney Arndt, Vice President; Lia Banks, Secretary and Mike Stock, Treasurer.

In December 2021, PHMS was re-designated as a Pennsylvania Donald Eichhorn “School to Watch.”  Pleasant Hills Middle School was initially designated as a School to Watch in 2014 and was re-designated in 2017. The Schools to Watch (STW) program recognizes schools achieving academic excellence based on rigorous criteria established by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform.
