Perry’s Physics classes will be studying aerodynamics and airplane wing design this year thanks to NASA. Through a program sponsored by NASA Glenn Research Center, Nate Van Wey’s physics classes received $700 worth of equipment to study, design, and build wings and gliders as part of a physics curriculum which focuses on aerodynamics. NASA Glenn is an international leader in airplane wing design and testing. Nate’s participation in a NASA summer program made his classes eligible to apply for a grant to receive these teaching tools.

Congratulations to Kevin McDougal for being named the Canton Repository Teen of the Month for December.
Tuesday December 1, 2009, JV bowler, Gino Pilla struck gold. Gino bowled his first ever 300 game during the Perry vs Boardman JV match. His previous high game was a 279. When Gino reached the 10th frame, he “felt completely numb”. His coach, Russ Warrington, told Gino to calm down. A crowd started to gather around his lane in the 7th frame and by the 10th frame, the entire bowling alley was watching this historic moment. Gino is the 3rd Perry bowler to hit 300 and the 1st JV bowler to bowl a perfect game. Gino is now a member of the Honor Roll from ohiohighschoolbowling.com.
