Wow! What an amazing first couple of weeks. It's been wonderful to see all the smiling students back at Perry, excited for this school year. We have a new group of Perry Panthers in kindergarten this year, and they are working towards learning our school-wide and classroom expectations. We're also looking forward to learning our letters, letter sounds, and numbers with them throughout the month of September. This month we will also spend time learning about the life cycle of an apple. Look out Perry, watch us grow!

This is a school newsletter/flyer that will be published once a month (usually the beginning of each month) for the parents of all the students who attend Perry Elementary. 

The Perry Pawsitive News will be sent electronically via email. If you prefer a hard copy, one will be available to you in the Perry office.  

In the monthly newsletter, you will find information about what is going on in the classrooms and in the school. We hope that you share this information with your child and the rest of your family. If you have any questions, please contact the school office. The office hours will be Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Last year, one of the main goals we needed assistance from parents with was improving our overall attendence rate to 94.4%, which was the state average. While we were close, unfortunately our attendance rate was 93% at the end of the 2018 school year. Another goal was to reduce the amount of tardies by 10%. You as parents and families are important parts of reaching these goals. It is very important for your child to be at school between 7:30-7:40. Daily instruction starts immediately at 7:40. Repeated and chronic tardiness can greatly impact your child's learning process and retaining important instructional information. This includes specials such as PE, Art, and Music as well. If you need assistance with making a plan to get your child to school on time, I would be happy to discuss possible opportunities to assist you. 

I look forward to be working each day with the children, parents, staff and teachers at Perry. We will continue its rich history and traditions but also find ways to make it better each day.
