• Dear Parents/Guardians,
    It is time to begin the process of electing parents to serve on the School Improvement Council (SIC) and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the 2021-2022 school year.
    Parents who serve on SIC serve in an advisory capacity with the school and also serve a very important role as liaison between school and community. Parents who serve on the PTO support the educational goals of the school and encourage parental involvement in the education of their child's education and school.
    Our SIC-PTO meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 pm. Due to COVID-19, meetings will continue to be held in a virtual format. The first meeting of the 2021-22 school year will be held on September 27, 2021.
    Only parents of a child attending W.A. Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year are eligible to serve as elected members on SIC and PTO. Parents are limited to serving on SIC at one school each year. We currently have two seats available on SIC and four seats available on PTO.
    Parent involvement is important to us, and your input is needed and truly appreciated. Please nominate yourself or someone else by completing the forms attached to this letter or the links provided in the letter. You must submit your nomination to the SIC/PTO on or before Friday, September 3, 2021 by returning the form to the W.A. Perry main office, by mail to the attention of Dr. Robin Coletrain, by completing the links, or by sending an email to robin.coletrain@richlandone.org.
    Virtual voting for vacant SIC/PTO seats will take place September 13-24, 2021. Please see the attached documents for more information.
    Thank you for supporting W.A. Perry Middle School.
    Dr. Robin L. Coletrain
