Instructional Focus


All Perry School students and staff work toward achieving an instructional focus that states, “we will provide opportunities for ALL students (every child, every day) to productively struggle with learning while engaging in oral and written tasks.”  We embrace what it means to have “sweaty brains” because we know that when students’ brains and thinking are challenged, true connections are made!  

We utilize our time intentionally to enhance our thematic curriculum. This includes more culturally and currently relevant texts to build an inclusive and supportive learning environment.

Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Focus: We are continuing to focus on following Self-Awareness skills this month with our students and staff:
#1: Identify and practice strategies and techniques for supporting and managing emotions.
#2: Demonstrate awareness of self as a member of family, culture, and community.
#3: Identify who supports you.
