Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We are glad that you are joining us, as we embark on an exciting year of teaching and learning at W.A. Perry Middle School. After the last year of teaching students in a fully virtual and then hybrid setting, we are excited to return to five full days of in-person instruction in the building. I want to acknowledge that there will be some students and families with anxiety about returning to school. If you have any specific questions, need information about practices and protocols, or need to speak with a counselor, please do not hesitate to contact me, and I will be happy to assist you!
This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to provide world-class instruction daily with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide students with opportunities to address academic deficiencies, build numeracy and literacy skills, and have the opportunity to participate in gifted and honors classes. We will continue to implement initiatives to promote teaching and learning and to engage all our stakeholders in the process of educating our students. We look forward to partnering with all stakeholders to positively impact student performance in every content area.
I am excited about all this new school year has to offer. The W.A. Perry team looks forward to working collectively as a family to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared to be successful in their endeavors in middle school and beyond. The W.A. Perry Team is committed to excellence and being a world-class institution of teaching and learning.
Our school theme is #AintNoStoppingUsNow! It is our desire to keep moving forward and make this school year great! As we move forward, you will hear me refer to our theme in future communications, in school messenger phone calls, and in our community. After living through a global pandemic, “we won’t let nothing hold us back…we’re pulling ourselves together, we’re polishing up our act…if you’ve ever been held down before, I know you refuse to be held down anymore!“ W.A. Perry Eagles…..”We’re on the Move!
I look forward to building relationships with all stakeholders throughout this year and encourage you to become active members of SIC-PTO and the Eagle family. It is going to be an amazing year.
With Great Eagle Pride,
Dr. Robin L. Coletrain
