The mission of Annette Perry Elementary is to work with the family of every student to ensure that he or she demonstrates mastery of grade-level content as designated by local and state standards. We will do this in a safe environment that fosters positive relationships and ensures the development of the whole child.
The BEST school in the universe!
I am a Perry Falcon. I choose to work hard every day. I will show respect to my teachers and classmates because that's the Falcon way.
This Is Our HOUSE!
The purpose of the House Families concept is to create, encourage and celebrate a whole school culture of appreciation, character development and accountability that develops responsible citizenship, improved attitudes and academic success throughout the school. Appropriate behaviors are awarded points (tickets).
The HOUSEs create a positive school atmosphere of respect, community and teamwork through encouraged and rewarded “good will,” “camaraderie,” “collaboration,” “competition” and “celebration.” Earn points through positive actions. Teachers and staff will award points each day. Tickets are signed and placed into designated house containers. Every Friday, someone will take the containers to the office to be counted.
Tickets are handed out by all staff as rewards for good deeds, good will, good works, extraordinary actions, etiquette, volunteering, exemplary manners, behavior…NOT ACADEMICS. Each ticket counts as 1 HOUSE point. One ticket, one point. No taking them back. No transferring.
Celebrations / Rewards/ Incentives
The HOUSE with the most points is rewarded every six weeks. Celebrations / rewards are decided as we go. We also draw 2 tickets from every house every week for individual students to get a reward. At the end of the year, we will have an overall reward for the House that has accumulated the most points.
How it Works
Each HOUSE is designated by a color and a name (character trait). Each HOUSE will have members of the faculty coordinating/sponsoring it. HOUSEs develop a unique culture and establish relationships. HOUSEs compete by members attaining points (tickets) rewarded for “doing things right!” and “doing the right things!” Every staff member and student is randomly attached to HOUSEs by drawing a colored bracelet out of a bag.
