Latest News for Pfeiffer Intermediate


Several members of our Perry Local Schools’ community were recognized as “people of character” at the annual recognition at R.G. Drage. Congratulations to one of our very own from Pfeiffer Intermediate. Mr. Lorentz is our PE teacher and was recognized for his dedication and commitment to living the six pillars of character (trustworthy, respect, responsibility, fair, caring, and citizenship).

Way to go, Mr. Lorentz!!!

If you or any authorized person is picking your student up early from school, you MUST present a drivers license for identification purposes.  This is for the safety of all of our students.
Also, a reminder to parents that if they have not sent in fees for their child, they need to do so ASAP.


Perry Local Schools will no longer be printing interim reports during the course of the school year.  Parent Internet Viewer, PIV, provides the opportunity for parents to view grades on a daily basis.  This constant communication will aid parents in more frequent feedback for their child.  If you are unable to access the PIV system with your personal password, please contact the school office for program troubleshooting or other options.

Pfeiffer’s New Principal

Dear Parent / Guardian,

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the students and families of Pfeiffer Intermediate School.  My name is Chad Merritt and I will be the principal of Pfeiffer Intermediate School from this point forward.  I have worked for Perry Local as an assistant principal at Perry High School for the last four years.  Before coming to Perry I worked as a science teacher and science coach for ten years in the Plain Local Schools.  My main areas of expertise are in curriculum and assessment, and I am excited to bring my experiences and background to Pfeiffer.  The staff and students have been wonderful during this transition.  We are fortunate to have such a great group of staff and students at Pfeiffer! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at school or stop by to set up an appointment.  I’m very excited to be a part of the Pfeiffer family!
