Great things happen at Whipple Heights Elementary School. The most recent being the posting of Mr. Hug’s 1st Round Principal Showcase for the 2017-2018 school year. The Principal Showcase is a bulletin board (located in the main hallway across from the office) where every four to five weeks teachers submit student work for recognition and display based on student effort. Each time the board is changed we recognize these students on our website/social media. Additionally, when it’s time to change the board students receive a small token from Mr. Hug to reinforce his pride and excitement in their display of hard work. (more…)
Perry Local, along with most other Stark County schools, is transitioning to a new online grade book system. The Parent Grade Viewer, which is now called the Home Access Center (HAC), will most likely not be active until after the first nine weeks. The delay is due to a large amount of formatting, data migration, and set up along with a focus on the great importance of the accuracy of all of the information.
We will be sending home information and directions once the Home Access Center component is up and running. We appreciate your understanding as we work through this transition time.
Today, Perry Police Officers joined our staff at Whipple Heights Elementary to conduct our first set of safety drills for the 2017-2018 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. Classrooms teachers talked with the students about what a drill is and why we conduct them prior to beginning the drills and then worked to answer questions following the completion of them. We practiced both a building-wide lock-in and a building-wide evacuation drill. So, don’t be surprised when your child comes home talking about these drills or the presence of police officers at the school. Have a GREAT week!
