If not, no worries – we will be sure to continue to get all information out by email as well.
A Cooler Start To 2022- 23
We are excited to announce that we were able to get 35 air conditioners installed over the past week. Hopefully, that should be a huge help as we work through the end-of-summer heat during the first few weeks of school!
Before/After School 22-23
If interested in signing your child up for before/ afterschool programming, please take a minute to fill out this interest form: Perry Before/ Afterschool Interest Form, and please see the application attached (pricing may change based on demand). For any additional questions, please reach out directly to Ms. Bonnie (our outstanding school secretary and before/ afterschool director) at email@example.com.
First Day of School Info
If dropping off/ walking on Opening Day, please meet us in the Perry Schoolyard (in back of the school) to find your teacher and get the day started. We will follow the same process for Kindergarten Opening Day on September 12th as well.
Ms. Carly Sexton will be joining the team as the paraprofessional for our K0 - K1 classroom. For the past three years, Ms. Sexton has served as a special education teaching assistant at Dolbeare Elementary School in Wakefield Public Schools.
