  • A Message from the Principal 

    Hi WAPMS Families, Dr. Coletrain

    Welcome to the W.A. Perry Middle School 2022-2023 school year. I am glad you are joining us again as we embark on an exciting year of teaching, learning, and growing together. To our incoming 6th grade students, welcome to the WAPMS family; we look forward to seeing your growth over the next three years. 

    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. Furthermore, we look forward to partnering with all stakeholders to positively impact student performance in every content area. 

    Our theme for the year is All In: Bringing Our “A” Game. With this year's theme serving as the foundation for every decision we make, WAPMS will renew our commitment to high expectations by providing rigorous instruction daily, with the expectation that ALL students can learn and succeed. Our staff is committed to successfully helping all students grow in the knowledge and skills needed to successfully embark on their chosen path in life. WE ARE ALL IN!  

    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. Please update your contact information to stay abreast of all things happening at W.A. Perry Middle School. Please do not hesitate to email me at robin.coletrain@richlandone.org with any questions. It is going to be an amazing year. 

    With Great Eagle Pride, 

    Dr. Robin L. Coletrain
