"Show Off Amazing Reading" 



We will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in September.

Or you may send a copy of a photo to be placed in the display case inside the school. Please put your child’s name and teacher on the back. Photos may not be larger than a 4x6. Please send all photos (digital or copy) by September 23rd.

Library Information & Book Checkout Policy

Students in PK, Kindergarten, and 1st grade may have one book checked out at a time. Students in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade may have two books checked out at a time. In January, the number of books allowed for 1st - 4th will increase. If students are required to check out a specific book for a class assignment, this will be in addition to the two book limit. All books may be checked out for one week, and may be renewed on an as needed basis. Classes visit our library weekly for instruction and checkout. Students may utilize our Open Check Out program which allows students the flexibility to visit the library individually on a more frequent basis.

Parents, please help to ensure your child is a good library citizen and remind them to return his/her book on time, which is your child's responsibility.

Access to search for books in Perry's library may be done from the classroom, or home, by visiting the library website and clicking on the Destiny Discover icon.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
