Middle School Student Forum

Middle School Student Forum

 

As is tradition at MPCS, the middle school held its annual Student Forum Convention today in the Catherine Steele Sewell Stadium. Five candidates (R. Frazer, E.K. Arnold, C. Thompson, K. Cunane, and A. Gilmore) from the eighth grade gave their speeches to all the "states" represented by middle school homerooms. The states paraded into the stadium in spirited attire, rallying for the candidates.

Each homeroom chose a different theme for dress up for the convention to add to the excitement and community this event fosters. From the "State of Insurance Agents" to the "State of Quarantine," students rallied in this convention-style learning experience, gaining a great understanding of the political process in the United States and casting their vote for the 2020-2021 MPCS middle school student body president.  

Congratulations to all the candidates, especially R. Frazer, who was selected as Student Forum President.
