A Message from the Principal
Hi Perry Families & Students,
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I am honored and excited to return for my fourth year as the proud principal of W.A. Perry Middle School. I eagerly anticipate another successful year partnering with staff, parents, and the community to insure our students have an exceptional educational experience.
W.A. Perry strives to provide a high-quality program that supports the academic, social and emotional growth and safety of its students. Our focus is to help students become creators, communicators, critical thinkers and collaborators to be successful in school and to compete globally. We are proud to offer a challenging educational program with a S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) focus, a great visual and performing arts program, an ever-growing sports program, and a host of clubs and mentoring opportunities that offers something for everyone. We believe it is important to be connected to the school through positive relationships, a sense of community, and participation in extracurricular opportunities.
Our staff recognizes the role they play in helping your child reach their full potential, and they do not take the responsibility lightly. We truly believe all students can be successful and this belief drives the work they do on a daily basis. Parent involvement too is vital to your child’s success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education.
Another year of learning, anticipation, wonder and fun lies ahead. We are excited to have our students return to campus and look forward to all the gains we will achieve by working together this year. 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 and PTO, we will continue to advance and strive for excellence.
I look forward to meeting everyone and can't wait to see you back on our campus.
#StrongerTogether #ExcelExceedElevate #LevelUp #Higher
With Great Eagle Pride,
Dr. Robin Coletrain
