Message from the Principal
With the end of the first grading quarter rapidly approaching (October 26th), the much warmer opening days of the academic year seem to be a distant memory. We are definitely in "full swing" with all of our activities and look forward to building upon our successes as the school year unfolds.
We hope that you will take a few moments today to read through some of the amazing activities and accomplishments that continue to further recognize our collective efforts.
As always, thank you for your support.
PHS Student receives high accolade
Congratulations is extended to Ariel Fellenstein-Burns for being selected as one of the Educators Rising National Student Ambassadors for the 2018/19 school year. According to the Educators Rising National Office, Ariel has demonstrated her leadership at Perry HS and in her current chapter.
Educators Rising cultivates highly skilled educators by guiding young people on a path to becoming accomplished teachers, beginning in high school and extending through college and into the profession. Through this program, students can compete, collaborate, and network with educators and future educators. Last year, Ariel achieved first place in lesson planning at Educators Rising Ohio . This year, Ariel is a National Ambassador for Educators Rising.
Ariel now has an amazing opportunity to gain experience and create bonds with people from Ohio at the State level as well as the National level. When asked about this achievement, Ariel says she is "so thankful for this opportunity to be Perry's first Educators Rising National Ambassador and I can't wait to see what the future holds! There's power in teaching!"
We wish Ariel the best of luck as she moves forward with this wonderful experience.
