On Tuesday February 11th, the Middle School Student Council met with advisor Joanne Maino to discuss their upcoming plans for Project Pink. The acronym “Pink” stands for “Paying in Kindness”. The goal of Project Pink is to make the Manchester Essex community, both inside and outside of the school, a better place through simple acts of kindness and community service. At the meeting, the group planned a student-led assembly to be presented to the Middle School. Maino clarified the layout of the upcoming presentation about Project Pink to members. Maino stated that students will work on elements of the presentation both individually and in groups over the next few weeks at Student Council meetings.
