Pizza Anyone?

Perry HS is teaming up to bring the Link Crew program to our students for the 2019/20 school year. This nationally recognized program will help our student body in countless ways by promoting positive relationships, developing leadership skills, and supporting the transition of our freshman on a yearly basis.

With this in mind, please mark your calendars for a pizza night on Tuesday, December 4th (5:00-8:00 PM) at Blaze Pizza (5125 Dressler Road) as a portion of the proceeds will go towards helping our efforts to bring this program to Perry HS. More details will follow in the coming weeks, yet planning for the night - and leaving all the cooking behind - during the upcoming holiday season would help our efforts.
