From the Principal


Looking into Next Year...

We are working to improve our departmentalization in reading and math in grades 3-5 and our collaboration between grades 1-2. We are making some classroom changes to better assist our students and staff to have more collaboration areas and space to work with smaller groups of students. Teachers will be using more reading resources next year called Reading Units of Study. This was introduced throughout this school year and the expectation will be for more instruction using these resources in K-5 grade.

We will have some additional staff joining Perry Elementary. We will have a full time social worker and math interventionist. The social worker will not only be working with students, but also assisting teachers with social emotional needs of their students on a daily basis. Our math interventionist will provide extra math assistance to K-5 students who are constantly scoring within the lower 25%ile of their peer group at that grade level. This extra assistance will be a benefit to target specific math skills and building them to achieve proficiency.

Finally, in some classrooms, students have been setting goals all year long and have been so excited to share when they meet those goals. Goal setting is just one way to help our students “own” their learning and be an active part of moving themselves forward.  We are really excited for how this is allowing us to meet students where they are at! We look forward to continuing on this journey with our students and families into next year!
