Watching Sheds by Fisher LLC parallel park the brand new dugouts in place with precision was remarkable! The new dugouts are larger and have dedicated storage spaces. When completed, they will have custom benches, helmet storage areas, and bat racks. I will continue to say it: “We have the best local business on our team.” Thank you, Sheds by Fisher LLC for your amazing craftsmanship and service. Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools
This morning I stopped by the Elementary/Junior High School and was blown away by the Operations and Maintenance Department’s efforts. I told Sue Cox (Cleaner a.k.a. The Boss): “It looks like you could skate on these floors. They look amazing.” The O and M Crew takes complete ownership of the facilities. The personal care and attention given to every inch of our buildings is evident the moment you walk through the door. Best O and M team by far! Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools
Perry Central Basketball/Lowell Heiby Summer Camp hosted 38 campers during the week of June 27. Coaches Rod Allen, Jeremy Ohlson, and Jimmy Fahey focused on teaching participants individual skills of ball handling and shooting, as well as, game play. The Lowell Heiby scholarship not only supplied campers with a camp t-shirt, but also provided both the boys’ and girls’ varsity basketball teams with summer league fees. The PCSD basketball programs would like to thank the Heiby family for its continued support!
Check out the delivery for Mrs. Woloszyn and our Ag students! The District is constantly researching the best equipment to incorporate in its instructional spaces.

Best students, best teacher, most cutting-edge equipment, best team! Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools
The Operations and Maintenance crew is pouring the foundations for the new dugouts on the baseball and softball fields. Best O and M team…hands down!

Congratulations to Mr. Levano, grades 5-8 instrumental music teacher, on receiving the Barrie Fleegel Memorial Active Educator Grant Award this week from the Central Western Zone of Retired Educators of New York! This is well-deserved! #PrideInTheHive
From the student perspective, the WORST part of Mr. Mancari’s annual Regatta is there’s no way of knowing if boats will sink or swim until competitors enter the water. On the flip side, from the spectator’s perspective, the BEST aspect of the competition is the unknown. Will a boat made solely of cardboard and duct tape glide across the pool or sink like a stone? That was the fun in watching this year’s event, held last Thursday, and why this has been a student-favorite (adults too) for the last 13 years. #PrideInTheHive
