Students in second grade enjoyed a poetry slam! Second grade teachers put together a poetry cafe for the students. Students have been working on poetry this quarter. During the Cafe, the students from each class got to sit on the stool in front of the class and read their favorite poem to the whole grade, including jazz music, karaoke machine, table lamp, and snaps. It was very fun and exciting to see all the students share their hard work!
Mrs. Tonya Bryant and some students from Lights On went on a REACH field trip to Tipsaw to clean up the trails. Thank you, Tonya and kids for helping clean up and keep our community clean!
We are celebrating #CollegeSigningDay for our seniors! We know the importance of getting an education past high school, whether choosing a professional training program, earning a certification, having an apprenticeship, attending a two- or four-year institution, or joining the military. All are impactful to future success, and we are excited to celebrate all of their post-secondary plans! @BetterMakeRoom @ReachHigher
Our teachers are the heart of our school. They protect, defend, comfort, instruct, model, encourage and love the students they serve. Most teachers go into this work because they love children. The impact they make on students keeps them going, but the job is tough, and teachers are human, too. We would love to pour some love on our teachers and staff this week in honor of Appreciation Week. At Perry Central, we celebrate all of our school employees during this week because we recognize that where little eyes are watching, we are all teachers in what we do and say. Please take a minute and give a shout out in the comments to a teacher, assistant, cook, bus driver, maintenance person, secretary--tell them how they made an impact on your life. Or send them a text or email or note in the mail. These words of encouragement make a difference to our educators, and educators make all the difference to our kids.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
