OUR MISSION

The Perry K-8 School is a community working together to prepare our students for successful futures.  

We develop strong relationships with families and students to provide the best education for every child, every day.  

 

Our focus is to academically and socially advance our students through innovative experiences designed to positively promote the learning of the whole child.

OUR VISION

Through an intentional focus on student-focused and grade-level standards aligned academic and social-emotional learning opportunities, we will continue to close our opportunity and achievement gaps.

Student ExpectatioNS

We have revamped our expectations for students, staff and community members to ensure that they are positive, asset-oriented and student-focused. Students who exemplify what it means to be S.H.A.R.K.S. are given Shark Bites (K-4) and Shark Cents (5 &6) on a daily basis to recognize their important work as role models for the community!

We are excited to implement a school-wide Social Emotional Learning curriculum that aligns with our S.H.A.R.K.S. expectations! The Zones of Regulation provides an opportunity to teach students the skills towards developing awareness of their feelings/internal state and how to utilize a variety of tools and strategies for regulation, prosocial skills, self-care and overall wellness.
