 Rolón added he’s looking forward to working with them in addition to  hearing about the new ideas they have to support the school and the  Goshen community.

Already, there’s plans in the works.

Secretary Tyler Kropp said the group will be planning a student “Snowball Dance” for January 2019.

Treasurer Jackson Yerkes said the group is looking into “Dunk Your Middle School Administrators” dunk tank to raise funds for school activities.

Vice President Giuliana Fortuna said she’s hopeful the group can spearhead a Powder Puff flag football game, with long-term goals of creating a tournament with other Orange County middle schools.

And, President Kiara Paulino said she wants to build connections with the community by finding locations in Goshen which can benefit from the planting of new trees, including a special tree to be installed on the C.J. Hooker campus.
