  • A Message from the Principal 

    Welcome to 2020-21! As we plan for a beginning like no other, our focus will still be to ensure that we Dr. Robin Coletrain EXCEL, EXCEED, and ELEVATE in a way that every student feels connected and challenged by new learning and experiences.

    Spring of 2020 challenged staff and students to find a new normal for learning, connected us in new ways, and required our Eagles to soar from afar. What I have learned through this experience is how much I appreciate the expertise our teachers bring to W.A. Perry Middle School (WAPMS), the ways in which our students continue to work hard to grow, and appreciation for the little things in life: giving a high five, a hug or being able to laugh out loud with our school community. What I MOST appreciate about WAPMS is how, even under circumstances we have never experienced, we are still a learning and caring community.

    Normal is such a simple word and it is our goal at WAPMS to not only find our new normal, but to use this time as a learning experience that will forever impact our learning environment. While our new school year may not be “normal,” our learning will not only continue, but it will thrive. We can’t wait to move on to the next phase of learning and we know all returning and new students will be welcomed with open arms (from 6 feet away) to our community.

    How do you get information? Each Sunday, the What’s Happening at Perry e-newsletter will be emailed to parents. This is a way for you to stay informed about all things W.A. Perry. The WAPMS website is a place to go to pull static information, facts about WAPMS that could be important for a family at any point of the year, for example, the bell schedule, the school calendar, how to log in to PowerSchool, etc. Another way to receive personalized information and be engaged in conversations related to the WAPMS community is to attend monthly SIC-PTO meetings where special guests will present important information.

    As we move forward, let’s remain committed to the success of all students served at W.A. Perry Middle School. With the support of our parents, community, business leaders, and a dedicated SIC-PTO, we will continue to advance and strive for excellence.

    #ReStartStrong  #AnotherLevelOfExcellence  #RiseAsOne

    With Great Eagle Pride,

    Dr. Robin L. Coletrain
