Principal's Message


    Mr. Correll

    Annabel C. Perry Pre K-8 Family:

    Penguins and Future Penguins. Thank you for taking the time to stop by our school’s website to learn more about the amazing things happening at Annabel C. Perry PreK-8. While great things are happening daily at A.C. Perry regarding academic adventure in learning, I am most proud to announce that Annabel C. Perry PreK-8 has received authorization to offer the Primary Years Programme by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IB). This distinction separates our students as learners by teaching them to inquire, question, explore, and learn more about the world around them. Our goal at Annabel C. Perry Pre K-8 is to provide every student with a world-class education as we continue to introduce new initiatives and programs that will support ALL students. This goal remains unchanged even throughout this year as we work collectively in both a face to face and virtual learning environment. Our teachers and staff continue to deliver high quality instruction, maximize instructional time, and effectively monitor student learning in all capacities.

    Annabel C. Perry PreK-8 has had great success over the past few years in not only moving student achievement, but also in building a “Culture of Caring” where all students are valued. I believe that as a school, our greatest strengths are the relationships we build with our students, families, and community. We will continue this partnership regardless of distance and assist each other as we learn and grow collectively. Our ability to adapt and adjust over throughout the year is critical to our success of maintaining an active and engaging learning experience. I do, however, believe that the home-to-school connection is more important than ever, and I look forward to continuing to work with both the community and our families as we make learning our priority.

     My commitment as principal is to ensure every student at Annabel C. Perry Pre K-8 is surrounded with and supported by nothing but caring professionals who are dedicated to excellence. In addition, I will continue to provide you with the most up to date information on any changes as they become available. I encourage you to get involved and follow our journey on Twitter (@Annabel_C_Perry.)

    I can be reached at 754-323-7050 or and look forward to hearing from you as we partner together for a common goal of student success.
