Our 2016-2017 Pacesetters are a huge asset to Echols Middle School. They helped us several days during the summer break by organizing materials, redecorating bulletin boards, cleaning, etc. They toured students and parents through the school on both schedule pick up days as well as helped teachers on all our teacher work days. They assisted during our PTO/Open House. The Pacesetters had an incredible experience at True Vine Foundation where they grew stronger as a team on the Odyssey Ropes Course and tackled many obstacles on their low ropes course. The Pacesetters donated many items for shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child in November, and then in December joined with the National Junior Honor Society and packed the boxes at Operation Christmas Child's headquarters in Atlanta, GA. Everyone had an awesome time serving others and making sure children received these special gifts. This spring the Pacesetters will host the annual talent show, and visit our three elementary schools to talk to the 5th grade students about middle school. Echols would not be the awesome school it is without these amazing student leaders. We are very grateful for all their service to our school, students, and teachers.
