Perry Innovation Center

Weekly Update - Sept. 2, 2021

Week #1 is in the books!

We enjoyed seeing our former Panthers back to school this week and meeting and getting to know our new Perry Panthers! Everyone is finding their way around the school and we've worked out a pretty good system for parent pick-up that should only take 8-10 min. to get everyone through...that is, from dismissal time at 2:45 p.m. Parents - you may want to consider arriving at 2:45 p.m. or a couple minutes later if you are looking to minimize your wait time. Speaking of parent transportation, if you drop off your student in the morning, please do not drop earlier than 7:20 a.m. Our start time is 7:35 a.m. and we will let students in starting at 7:20 a.m. to the gym to wait until the bell rings at 7:30 a.m. We do not have supervision in the gym earlier than 7:20 a.m.


We hope everyone has a wonderful and restful long weekend and we look forward to seeing our students next Tuesday, Sept. 7!

Perry Innovation Center Extracurricular Activities

Robotics - Our robotics teams are starting their season in the next couple of weeks! We have 2nd/3rd, 4th/5th, and 6th-8th grade teams. Please contact Mr. Jason Vallimont at jvallimo@gbcs.org for information about robotics.


Gardening Club - Our gardening club will be starting soon. Look for information in the next two weeks!


Yearbook Club - We are looking for an adult sponsor for our yearbook club this year. The time commitment is about 1x/week after school for 8-10 weeks in the winter/spring. Please contact Dr. Hall if interested in learning more!


Chess Club - We are also in need of an adult chess club sponsor this year. This club starts in January - March. Please contact Dr. Hall if interested!


Other Extracurricular Activities - Parents, if you have ideas for afterschool clubs and activities that you are interested in facilitating, please reach out to Dr. Hall at ahall@gbcs.org. Sometimes, our students enjoy terrific learning opportunities from a parent who has a passion for an activity - writing, drama, sports, or other. Thank you!
