Dear Parents & Families of O.H. Perry,
We welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. My name is Britt Irvin and I am the new Principal. Joining me in the school leadership team is Sammy Al-Ali as Assistant Principal. We are thrilled to work together with staff to cast a vision for O.H. Perry as we prepare for the new building.
We need your help this school year! We have two priorities that we will focus on to raise student achievement. Priority one is on reading and ensuring scholars have strategies to examine complex texts to acquire meaning and deep critical thinking. We will have a series of literacy workshops for parents and families to work with us and gather tools for using these strategies at home.
Priority two is on self-management, one of our five core competencies in social-emotional learning. Self-management is a life-long skill to regulate one's emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in different situations. It is also the ability to set and work toward personal and academic goals.
We are going to do some "goal-digging"!
