PCS Community...the nets, and windscreens (Already tested) have been installed. It's March 1st...the tennis/pickleball courts are open!
Today, the Perry Central School District recognizes its most recent graduate, and offers its condolences to the entire Saunders family. Mark’s education was non-traditional in that his classroom was our community, and his teachers were his family, friends, and countless acquaintances throughout our Village. Mark understood the value of relationships, and always ensured those he encountered received a warm greeting, and knew who he was. He was a model of service for generations in our community. The Perry Central School District awards this honorary diploma to Mark Vernon Saunders. May we continue to remember Mark in our interactions with, and service to each other. Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools
Before February break, Mrs. Borek’s third graders held an “out of this world” party to celebrate finishing the Wit and Wisdom module about space and the moon. They drew their own constellations, and wore their pajamas to school so they could get comfy while watching the movie “Fly Me to the Moon.” Students also had some fun bringing in space-related treats, like Cosmic Brownies, Starbursts, Milky Ways, Moon Pies, and much more. #PrideInTheHive

The rifle team ended its regular season with a win over Pavilion/York 1,060-936. Top scorers for the Yellowjackets were Logan Church (284), Levi Church (268), Natalie Jaques (258), and Elizabeth Wright (250). Logan was the overall match winner and scored a perfect 100 in prone.
We came to play. And that’s exactly what we did today at PES. We joined countless other schools around the world by celebrating Global School Play Day. Students were invited to bring in games, toys, dolls, art supply, crafts – anything that wasn’t electronic – to spend the day playing in their classrooms. An entire day of just playing? Yes! The benefits of childhood play are significant. It provides one of the best opportunities for social-emotional learning in children, while promoting cognitive and physical development. Students abandoned their electronics and used their imaginations, laughed, compromised, conversed, learned more about their classmates and teachers…and just had fun.
We can't think of a better group to represent PCS at the FFA State Leaders' Experience! Great work by Gio, Noelle, Courtney, Abbey, and Logan advocating for agricultural education and FFA this week in Albany. #PrideInTheHive
Varsity Boys’ Basketball Results - 2/6 Perry - 61 Keshequa - 35 Perry started the game slow up just 6-5 after the 1st quarter but outscored Keshequa 55-30 the rest of the game. Seniors Bryce Tallman (16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals) and Hunter Henchen (15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 steals) led the way for Perry. Tyler Harvey added 11 points, Emmit Hill 7 points and Wyatt Arbo scored 6. Coaches Quote: “It was a great team effort tonight as everyone made significant contributions in the win. Trenton Washburn and Beau Slocum continue to solidify our defense inside and we got the ball moving on offense. We look forward to a big challenge on Saturday night at Mt. Morris”
Another engaging meeting for the members of the District Safety Committee, except Sunny. He decided to take his break during the communications presentation.
We are fortunate to have THE BEST School Counselors in our Social-Emotional Learning Department. Thank you Mrs. Ellis, Mrs. Kettle, and Ms. Ayers for everything you do for our students. Please join us in celebrating our team members during National School Counselor Week.
Facing your fears or meeting a challenge head-on can be scary, especially if it’s in front of your peers. We’re proud of our fifth graders for doing just that this afternoon. After finishing their current Wit and Wisdom module about word play, Mrs. Manchester, Mrs. Marti, Ms. McDanel, and Ms. Leavy suggested that their students host a stand-up comedy show. They’ve spent the last couple weeks developing jokes, writing stories, and perfecting punchlines. Not only are we impressed that students got up on the stage this afternoon to deliver their material, but their classmates were extremely encouraging and supportive in the audience. #PrideInTheHive

Today I was fortunate to see a presentation by a young man who still embodies the District's mission of 'Learning, Leading, and Serving.' Noah Hare (PCS Class of 2017) graduated from Alfred State with a degree in architecture in 2022. Noah immediately put his talents to use by assisting the Perry Veterans Memorial Association in developing a design for the new memorial that will be constructed at the Vet's Club. Noah offered his services for free, because he believes in recognizing those who served, and giving back to his hometown. I was fortunate to watch Noah present to the Perry Rotary Club today. His efforts will have a lasting impact on our community. Noah...thank you for being: you, a professional, a leader, and a model of service for our students. Best graduates, best architects, best team! Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools
Interested 10th graders headed to the GV BOCES Career and Technical Education Center in Mount Morris this morning to tour their facilities and learn more about the programs that will be available to them starting next school year. While the visit allows us to see the excitement these underclassmen have for new possibilities, it also brings us so much joy to witness our current CTE students thriving in their programs. February is CTE Month and it’s so important to highlight these programs. These students can graduate and immediately enter a skilled trade or go to college with knowledge that sets them apart from their peers. This is invaluable instruction. #PrideInTheHive
Let me set the scene: I am walking down the Main Hallway of the Senior High School, and immediately stop in my tracks to observe the newest exhibits in our display cases. One word: WOW! I was blown away by the level of detail in these pieces. This is more outstanding work from the students in our upper level drawing and painting electives. I made a point to find Mrs. Emerson, and heap significant praise on her students for their creativity and skill. Best students, best artists, best teachers, best team! Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools
This year’s 8th Grade Career Day had it all – interesting stories, networking opportunities, food, and gross stuff. When you’re trying to keep the attention of teenagers, you have to pull out all the stops. Students spent the morning at Attica Middle School, first meeting with Kim Smith, a Community Outreach Specialist with the FBI, who served as the event’s keynote speaker. They also met with representatives from the Golisano Institute for Business and Entrepreneurship and Genesee Community College, as well as professionals from Morton Salt, the Attica Veterinary Clinic, Wyoming County Community Health System, and New York Chips. The annual event, organized by Justin Dueppengiesser, Executive Director of the Wyoming County Business Education Council, in partnership with Wyoming County schools, aims to connect students with college and career opportunities. #PrideInTheHive
When senior Jade Duffin attended the GLOW with Your Hands: Healthcare inaugural event last year, it opened her eyes to the expansiveness of the healthcare field and the incredible opportunities available to those interested in a medical career. Jade was on hand yesterday, along with Superintendent McLaughlin, at Wyoming County Community Hospital to help announce this year’s GLOW with Your Hands: Healthcare event that will be held on March 22 at Genesee Community College in Batavia. The Wyoming County Business Education Council, the Livingston County Area Chamber, the Genesee County Business Education Alliance, SUNY GCC, and Wyoming County Community Health Services were excited to make the announcement. The goal of the event is to educate future-ready students, provide hands-on career exploration, and connect these participants with future employers. We’re excited to have our interested juniors participate again this year! #PrideInTheHive
Nine members of the Perry FFA, along with Mrs. Huttar, attended the first-ever Western NY Ignite Leadership Series on Saturday at the Erie County Fairgrounds in Hamburg. The event was organized by the NYS FFA to promote personal growth. Students attended two workshops, as well as participated in team-building activities. The focus was to help members improve their leadership skills and learn more about FFA and serving others. #PrideInTheHive #PerryFFA
A weekend filled with incredible music...we can't think of anything better. Congratulations to our student-musicians, along with Mr. Hirsch, Ms. Privatera and Ms. Gottschall, who spent Friday and Saturday at All-County Festival 1 at Keshequa CSD. PCS had great representation! #PrideInTheHive
The next complete group photo won't be until they're in caps and gowns at graduation rehearsal. They can see the finish line in sight. #PrideInTheHive #ClassOf2024
