Attention students: if you ever arrive at our school and see the blue lights on, you must go home or to the police or fire station.  These blue lights are an indication that it is not safe to enter the building.

 

Attention All Students: Do you enjoy writing?  Are you creative?  Do you want a great opportunity to exercise your imagination?  The Pelham Library is sponsoring “Pelham Reads Oz” during the month of November.  In conjunction with this, Pelham Memorial High School is sponsoring a creative writing contest based on your reading of L.Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  Choose a character from Baum’s original text and use your imagination to explore that point of view! Have your character journey through the land of Oz or to another time and place! Consider what happened before the character journeys to Oz, tell the story of Oz from another perspective, or place the character in another setting!  Entries may be in the form of flash fiction or a short story. Deadline for submissions is November 30th, 2017.  See posted fliers in English classrooms for more information.
