Paddle boarding in PE has been a HUGE hit with students!
It’s about making connections with our students. Last Monday, prior to Thanksgiving break, Mrs. Emerson created a “campfire” for her HS art students, complete with marshmallows. Well, the marshmallows were actually pieces of paper with words on them. The goal was for the words to spark a memory and give students the opportunity to share stories that came to mind based on the words. Classes were able to bond, laugh, and connect before the busy holiday season begins. #PrideInTheHive
Congratulations to senior Emma McLaughlin on being accepted into the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) All-Eastern Treble Chorus! Selected to perform in the 2023 All-Eastern Honors Ensembles, with rehearsals and performances being held April 13-16, will be the most musically talented high school students from the Eastern region of the United States. With assistance from their music teachers, these exceptional student-musicians will prepare challenging programs under the leadership of prominent conductors in this event. We know Emma’s vocal talents will shine bright at this event! #PrideInTheHive
The High School Stand Up Club and Ms. Smith organized the "Thanks-for-Giving" holiday food drive this year. Non-perishable food items were collected in both buildings, and members were transporting the donations to Community Action's food pantry yesterday afternoon. We know this initiative will help ensure that all families in our community enjoy the holiday season.
Best of luck to Sidney as she competes in the NYSPHSAA Diving Championships today!
The Perry Central School District is closed today, Friday November 18th.
Mr. Mellerski reminded some of his JH chorus members this morning that much like athletes have to practice and train, so do musicians. He had students practicing breathing with their stomachs instead of their chests. This gives vocalists fuller breaths and deeper tones. #PrideInTheHive
The winter sports season has officially started and we're excited to add riflery and indoor track and field to our offerings this year! #PrideInTheHive
A nap is definitely appropriate after the Food Service Staff served Thanksgiving dinner for lunch and a full day of active learning in UPK. #PrideInTheHive
Miss Gales’ 2nd graders transformed into scientists during an Ag in the Classroom lesson this morning. Stephanie Luders, Community Educator from Wyoming County Cooperative Extension, introduced students to the Black Box Experiment and challenged them to first make hypotheses on the contents of the mysterious boxes. Without opening the boxes, students were asked to use their senses to collect data, including whether the contents were heavy, emitted an odor, or made noise when the boxes were moved. Then came the moment of truth…the boxes were opened and students could determine whether their hypotheses were correct. In the end, all the contents represented a component of agriculture. #PrideInTheHive
This is the future of Perry's Wrestling Program right here! There was an incredible turnout last night for the first session of Jr. Jackets Wrestling. The next session is Nov. 21 from 6:00-7:00pm in the HS cafeteria and is open to all Perry students K-6th. Thank you to the coaches for providing this opportunity! #PrideInTheHive
Mrs. Woloszyn's 8th grade Ag Explorer students are keeping watchful eyes on their cucumber, radish, and lettuce plants as they are eager to make pickles and more with the produce. They are hoping some will be ready to harvest in two weeks. #PrideInTheHive
PCS was well-represented at the GVSMA All-County Solo Festival last week! We had 24 students from 7-12 band and chorus participate in the event, which was held at Livonia CSD on Nov. 9.

Freshman Dominick Prince had the highest score on snare drum for the Jr. High, while junior Parker Vinyard earned the highest score on the snare drum for the Sr. High. John Thomas Grover, a 7th grader, had the highest score on tenor saxophone for the Jr. High. Senior vocalist Emma McLaughlin tied with a score of 100. Congratulations to the participating students: Marley Bryant, Addison Buckley, Annabelle Buckley, Logan Church, Kiersten Conroy, Natalie Eaton, Patrick Feroleto, John Thomas Grover, Natalie Jaques, Gabrielle Lyman, Parker McGarvey, Emma McLaughlin, Aditya Monger, Jan Parker, Dominick Prince, Olivia Prince, Paige Roberts, Chloe Stevens, Parker Tallman, Kane Townes, Emma True, Parker Vinyard, Aiden Wolcott, and Rhiannon Zentz. #PrideInTheHive (Thanks to Mr. Levano for the photo)
Mrs. James, Mrs. Cowie, and Ms. McCarthy announced this morning that Alex DeJesus is the first Employee of the Month in the PAES Lab! Congratulations, Alex! #PrideInTheHive
We've canceled Rake, Rattle and Roll in the past because we already had measurable snow, so today’s weather is a real treat. Great work by the 7th/8th graders and faculty/staff members, as well as National Honor Society members, to keep this decades-long PCS tradition going! #PrideInTheHive
Congratulations to Sydney Hnat (volleyball), Emma Darocha (volleyball), Abner Orozco-Flores (soccer), Lilly Henchen (volleyball), and Brooke Kwiecien (soccer) on being selected as LCAA Exceptional Seniors! #PrideInTheHive #ClassOf2023
It's a big day for Mrs. Lowery's Career and Financial Management students as they sit for mock interviews with business professionals from around the region. Even though they are prepared - dressed professionally and resume and cover letters perfectly written - the experience can be stressful at any age. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn lifelong skills that they can carry into the future.
The quietness of Mrs. Greenaker’s productive kindergartners stopped us in our tracks this morning. Students were so engrossed in drawing pictures about the five senses that not a peep could be heard in the classroom. What focused learners! #PrideInTheHive
It may only be November, but it's getting real for our seniors. A representative from Jostens visited this morning to talk to the group about ordering caps and gowns for graduation. Let the countdown begin!!!! #PrideInTheHive #ClassOf2023
