Annabel C. Perry Pre K-8 Family:
WELCOME BACK PENGUINS. I am looking forward to kicking off the 2020-2021 school year in our new environment of eLearning. I am even more excited about all the new opportunities and academic adventures that await you in this new and improved learning platform. Before we get started with what’s new, I am pleased 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 will separate 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 as we begin our year at a distance through eLearning. I am confident that the commitment of our teachers and staff over the past few weeks has prepared Annabel C. Perry PreK-8 to deliver high quality instruction, maximize instructional time, and effectively monitor student learning.
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 through this “new normal.” Our ability to adapt and adjust over these next few weeks is critical to the success of maintaining an active and engaging learning experience. I do, however, believe that the home-to-school connection is more important than ever before as we kick off the year virtually. I look forward with great anticipation to working 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and look forward to hearing from you as we partner together for a common goal of student success.
