Principal’s Update, 4/9

 News  Comments Off on Principal’s Update, 4/9

Parents,

We had another great week at Perry Middle, with our students quickly getting back in the grove and working hard in each of their classes.  Our week culminated with a great turnout at our skating event to support Autism Awareness, and two great performances of “James and the Giant Peach” by a number of our students on Friday and Saturday.  Well done to all.

Here is what is happening this week and more:

-Our 8th Graders will be traveling to the High School this Wednesday or Thursday, depending on their team, to get a first look at all of the many opportunities they will have for the next four years.

-The Annual Perry Township Art Show will take place this Thursday and Friday evenings beginning at 6:00 p.m. at Perry Meridian High School.  We are excited to participate and showcase our talented students at this event.

-This week’s regularly scheduled PTA meeting has been moved to Wednesday, April 26th. Please put this on your calendar now, as this meeting will be important as we will begin the process of creating a Strategic Plan for next year.  Our goal is to identify some additional ways in which our PTA can support our school and be more involved in helping us reach our school goals of academic achievement for all students and building a stronger community within and between PMMS and PMA.  Please join us for this brainstorming and planning endeavor as we look to grow the impact of our PTA.    The meeting will begin at 6:30 in the IMC.

– Please join us for our April Think and Make focused on Game Design on Thursday, April 20th at 6:30 p.m.   At the event families will (THINK) learn about what and how to make an effective and fun game and (MAKE) work with games and game design to sample, test, and begin creating their own game.  We encourage families to pre-register in order to ensure we have enough supplies and volunteers on hand.   Follow the attached link to pre-register:  https://goo.gl/forms/yrhzihrBlfIY6SyP2

-Finally, students will be soon be taking the second part of ISTEP.  Your student’s attendance is vital each and every day, but it is very important during our testing windows.  Our testing days will be Thursday, April 20th and Monday through Wednesday April 24th through the 26th.  Thanks for your help with this important task.

Our Spring sports our heating up, with two home events: our 8th grade Softball team is home on Monday, and our 8th grade Baseball team is home on Wednesday.

Thanks, have a great evening, and go Falcons!

Special education students from Perry Meridian Middle School collected cash donations and created a budget for children in need in Perry Township. They purchased and wrapped gifts for the holiday season and created cards for each child.  The group then attended a lunch at McDonald’s where they worked on their community skills of ordering, counting money, and social etiquette. This experience enriched the curriculum and education of these students while providing a direct correlation to the community for this holiday season.  Teachers Lindsey Dezelan, Ryan Short, Amy Phillips, and Malissa Waltz provided guidance in language arts, math  and philanthropy to accompany the field trip.

Teacher of the Year – Mrs. Dillman

IMG_2170

Alison Dillman, language arts teacher, has been voted “Teacher of the Year” by the staff at Perry Meridian Middle School.

Following is the text of the nomination form that explained why she was a worthy nominee:

* Concern for individual students.  From the start of every school year, Alison works diligently on the behalf of her students. While a computer program may schedule students randomly into teacher’s classrooms, Alison takes her time to purposely rewrite schedules for individual students. It’s important to her that all of her students, regardless of their level, receive the best instruction possible. There are few teachers who go to this length to ensure students are in the best classes for their needs. Continue reading »
