    A Message From the Principal

     Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!

    I am thrilled to be back another year as Principal of W. A. Perry Middle School!   Last year was a year of educational and academic growth as well as focusing on EXCELLENCE.  

    This year, we are stepping it up a notch!  From our school-wide focus on Balanced Literacy to going Full S.T.E.A.M. (Science Technology Engineering Arts Math) ahead with our STEAM initiatives to our continued student interventions and community partnerships, this year promises to be one of hard work, teamwork, collaboration, and a laser-like focus on moving our school, and most importantly,  our students forward. 

    As principal of W. A. Perry, I am committed to a continuous focus on doing what is in the best interest of ALL of my Eagle students. Please know that our doors are always open at Perry! 

    With a great faculty and staff committed to serving our students, an AMAZING group of students, and a supportive community, I am looking forward to our BEST year yet! 

    Mr. Robert A Smalls
