Mr. Macchi's Fall update




Hi Everyone,


As we wrap up October, I wanted to take a moment to check in and reflect on the work

that we have been doing as a community since the beginning of the new year. Please

see some highlights below:

● Our school-wide attendance is at about 96%! We are well above the district

average. As you know, the first step towards engagement is ensuring that

students are present, so this is a tremendous accomplishment for our

community. We will continue to work to get this number to 100%!

● We successfully engaged many of our families in information sessions so that

families learned more about the day-to-day work at the Perry. If you did not have

a chance to attend one of these meetings for your child’s homeroom, please

reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher to learn more!

● The School Site Council and School Parent Council elections were held in late

October. We are excited to have a team that is a strong representation of our

school community. Please see the School Site Council and School Parent

Council tabs on the website (to be updated shortly) to learn more!

● Our staff has engaged in numerous learning opportunities since the start of the

year as we continue to become more student-focused and standards-aligned in

our work with students, families and one another. Some of the work we have

engaged in includes but is not limited to: sharing our “Why” for why we do the

work we do every day, understanding microaggressions and how they can play

out in the classroom everyday and a deep dive into the book Cultivating Genius

by Gholdy Muhammad as we continue to find ways to affirm student culture and

identity in daily learning. We are excited to engage with families in some of our

learning moving forward! More information to come about this!


And as we head into November, here are some of the upcoming happenings that we

cannot wait to engage in as a community:

● Doc Wayne Remote Recess will re-launch this coming week for Grades 1-5 with

a new look and tons of fun! Junior Coaches from the Middle School will be joining

in to work with our kiddos shortly after. We cannot wait to re-engage with our

amazing partner Doc Wayne!

● On Tuesday, November 17th, there will be an opportunity for families to dig into

the learning that we have been digging into as a staff. More information to come

about this exciting opportunity!

● On Wednesday, November 25th, we will have our first Perry Pride Assembly of

the year with our Perry Sharks! We will use this time to recognize our students

for truly modeling what it means to be a Perry Shark!

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. Despite the

challenges that our society is currently facing, I am confident that we as a community

can continue to provide authentic and engaging learning opportunities for all of our

students. We will continue to Work Hard, Respect All and Have Perry Pride!
