    A Message From the Principal

     

    It has been an exciting year thus far at W. A. Perry!  I am extremely proud of all of the hard work of our staff during the first semester.  We were able to make huge strides toward our goal of Excellence!  With the successful implementation of our academic interventions such as: Saturday Blitz, the Homework Club, the Breakfast Club, Eagle Time, After School blitz five days per week, and our weekly academic and fun clubs, we have been able to academically strengthen our students and give us a tremendous start to the second semester.

    Now that we have transitioned into the second semester, we have hit the ground running to ensure that our students are successful for PASS and Aspire testing.  We will continue to use our current interventions, while raising our hard work and focus to another degree. We look forward to having an outstanding second half of the year, and I am positive that we will meet and exceed our ONLY expectation of EXCELLENCE!

    Mr. Robert A Smalls
    Principal
