Student Association

The Student Association is the formal voice of the student body and it is essential to the governance of Pelham Memorial High School.  The aims of the Student Association are to:

  1. Provide student government for the entire student body
  2. Develop attitudes and model the qualities of good citizenship
  3. Promote harmonious relationships throughout the school
  4. Provide a forum for responsible student expression
  5. Act as a link and agent of communication between the administration and the student body
  6. Develop a feeling of respect and loyalty in the school

In order to accomplish these goals, the Student Association has the power to:

  1. Sponsor programs in the interest of the student body
  2. Establish committees as the need arises
  3. Coordinate the student calendar, whereby all clubs,
  4. Classes, and other organizations must submit fund raising events or class activities to the Student Association for processing
  5. Develop a formal budget at the end of each academic year to be used by the incoming officers of the Student Association

All members of the Student Association are elected directly by the student body for one-year terms.
