You honestly cannot beat the morning we had at PCS. We welcomed friends from Letchworth and LeRoy Central Schools to join 16 of our students in participating in the Special Olympics at our Athletic Complex. Yet another example of why we do what we do. The student-athletes (and adults) had a blast and everyone went home with a ribbon and t-shirt. Thank you to the Special Olympics, Mr. Wyant for organizing the event, our incredible classroom teachers and staff members, high school students Bryce Tallman, Rachel Kuhlkin, Reilly Bertrand, Sawyer West, and Adrian Yang for volunteering today – and, most of all, our awesome student-athletes! #PrideInTheHive

This is why we do what we do. It's worth having to clean paint and glitter from fingers, toes, the floor and various surfaces in the elementary art room in order to see the sheer joy on the faces of Ms. Warner's students. This morning, Mrs. Adolf invited the class to join her in some hand and feet painting and, as you can see, it was a success! #PrideInTheHive

At last week's NYS Athletic Administrators' Association Chapter 5 Dennis E. Fries Awards Luncheon, Mr. Wyant, HS Assistant Principal/Athletic Director, was able to award Trisha Rippel, Assistant Transportation Coordinator, with a Chapter 5 Appreciation Award. As Mr. Wyant said, "I can't thank Trisha enough for her ability to coordinate transportation of our student-athletes to and from all of their athletic contests and practices. Since I have started in this position, we have added many "Sports Runs." This includes practices for our merged football and swim teams, to the addition of our riflery and indoor track programs, along with runs for our tennis and track teams who needed to go off-campus due to construction. Trisha was able to provide runs for all of these events and, if she couldn't find a driver to cover, she would take it upon herself to get our student-athletes to their destination. I appreciate the hard work and dedication Trisha has given our District." Congratulations, Trisha! #PrideInTheHive

With prom being this Saturday, the High School SADD Club, Officer Masci and the Perry Police Department, the PHS Counseling Department, and local law enforcement and emergency response agencies have teamed up to educate high school students, specifically juniors and seniors, about the dangers and consequences of distracted and impaired driving. Today’s activity includes a visit from the International Save a Life Tour. With a majority of crashes being caused by drivers being distracted behind the wheel, it’s important that young adults understand that one text or a couple of seconds with their eyes off the road can have a lasting impact on many lives. As part of the Save a Life Tour, students are using hands-on distracted driving and impaired driving virtual reality simulators. #PrideInTheHive

It was hard not to tear up during this morning's Grad Walk with the Class of 2023 and our UPK graduates. We can't help it. Watching our seniors come full-circle, marching through the hallways they once ran through as children, and knowing that the UPK students they were holding hands with would one day be in their shoes, was just too much! #PrideInTheHive
