Watson Elementary will be hosting a Girls on the Run program this coming spring. Girls on the Run is a program that aims to inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which include dynamic discussions, activities, and running games. Over the course of the 10-week program, girls in 3rd through 8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness.

This morning, Office Blanc and Perry Township paramedics joined our staff at Watson Elementary to help us with a specific student situation. At no time were any children at risk or in danger. The lockdown was to ensure the respect and privacy for the child involved. Do not be surprised if your child comes home tonight talking about this drill or the presence of police officers at their school. Have a great week!
This morning, Perry Police officers joined our staff at Watson Elementary to conduct our second set of safety drills for the 2016-2017 school year. This is standard practice in Perry Local designed to ensure all students understand what to do in the event of any type of emergency. We practiced a breach in security drill, where some teachers locked down and/or barricaded in their classrooms while others exited the building based on the information provided. Following the drill, classroom teachers talked with their students about the drill and what they did. So, don’t be surprised when your child comes home tonight talking about this drill or the presence of police officers at their school. Have a GREAT week!
