Mrs. Bellamy and her art students in grades 4-8 would like to thank Ken and Melissa Winter for recently donating several LED light boxes on behalf of the Perry Veterinary Clinic for use in the art classroom. Tracing is a great way to improve and gain confidence as an artist. Students have already used the light boxes on several projects. #PrideInTheHive #LearningLeadingServing

Countless hours have been spent by the PCS Drama Club's cast and crew fine-tuning every aspect of this year's production of "Into the Woods."

Ms. Hurd, 8th grade ELA teacher, and Mr. Byrnes, 8th grade History teacher, joined forces for a recent Holocaust research project. Students are currently learning about the WWII era in history and will soon begin the book "Night" by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel in English. They spent weeks researching Holocaust topics and creating presentations, which were given in the auditorium this morning. Public speaking is never easy, but the groups did really well! #PrideInTheHive
The Perry varsity cheerleaders completed a very successful 22-23 cheer season by competing at the NYSPHSAA Competitive Cheerleading Championships on Saturday, March 4th at the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton. In Class D2 Small, Perry placed 10th. The team had a clean Hit Zero (no deductions) performance, but the competition was unbelievable at this level. The team had a great season, with 4 first place finishes, 1 second place finish, a Livingston County League Championship, a Grand Championship at that same League competition, and a D2 Small Sectional Championship.
Isabel Swyers competed in the NYSPHSAA Indoor Track and Field State Championships on Saturday March 4th in Staten Island, NY. Isabel took 7th place in the Pole Vault with a height of 11'0". Her 11'0" vault was a personal record and it ties the Perry indoor school record. Congratulation Izzy, what a great Indoor season!
A shout out to Miss Gales' second graders for really committing to today's theme of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." #PrideInTheHive
Izzy is on her way. Good luck at the NYSPHSAA Indoor Track and Field Meet!
Green Eggs and Ham, the Grinch, and the Cat in the Hat...today is a Seuss-tastical day at PES! #PrideInTheHive
When you make first graders laugh while you read them a book about monsters, then you know it’s going to be a good day! Superintendent McLaughlin and several other Perry Rotary members are visiting elementary classes this week to share some of their favorite books in honor of Reading Festival Week. Of course, Mrs. Baker’s students were super excited to share their scariest, absolutely most frightening – and silliest – monster faces with Superintendent McLaughlin this morning! #PrideInTheHive
We couldn’t ignore the fun being had by Coach Weber’s and Coach Ohlson’s PE students today. This is Omnikin Kin-Ball and students in grades 4-8 are having a blast with this game, which encourages teamwork and communication. #PrideInTheHive
PES is kicking off Reading Festival Week with a ton of fun activities! Whether they're walking through the hallways, in art class, or seated in their classrooms, our students have to be prepared for surprise DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) time. We caught some of our kindergartners enjoying a "Pete the Cat" book with Ms. VonGunden during PE class this morning. #PrideInTheHive
