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.
Ms. Haley Begle turned her classroom into a construction site last week to teach area and perimeter. Thank you, Ms. Begle, for coming up with creative and fun ways to help your students learn!
What is also unique to Perry Central’s #EarlyCollege program is our internship program. Over 75% of our senior students participated. We are very thankful for our community partners that help make this program a success! @CELLuindy
Thank you to our parents, students and community partners, we surpassed our phone book goal. We collected 1,043 phone books! All proceeds will go toward purchasing school supplies. This would not be possible without the amazing support of our Commodore Community! 💚
#EarlyCollege at Perry Central wouldn’t be possible without our amazing teachers and assistants. Thanks for everything you do to make our program great! #EarlyCollegeWeek @CELLuindy

Perry Central will be conducting athletic physicals for the 2021/2022 school year this Wednesday, April 27, 2022. Any student planning to participate in athletics during the 2022/2023 school year at Perry Central must have a physical on file that is dated after April 1, 2022. Perry Central will provide an opportunity for every student athlete to complete a physical for a minimal cost of $5.00. (Students currently in Grades 4 and 5 planning to participate in football, cross country, volleyball, basketball or track will need a physical; and students currently in Grades 6-11 planning to participate in any sport including cheerleading will need a physical). Students can pick up physical forms in both the elementary and high school offices. Please make sure the physical papers are NOT folded, rolled, stained or torn. We expect them to be able to lay flat on a desk when the physical is complete. Times for grades are below. Students in grades 4-6 (this year) – 5:30 p.m. Students in grades 7-8 (this year) – 6:00 p.m. Students in grades 9-11 (this year) – 6:30 p.m.
This year, 30 Perry Central students will graduate with the Indiana College Core, saving them time and money on college. Obtaining an ICC Certificate means earning at least 30 dual credits and saving, on average, $275 per credit hour (a combined savings of $247,464 in tuition costs for these 30 students). #EarlyCollegeWeek @CELLuindy
