Good evening, this is Kim Zippie, Superintendent of the Commodore Perry School District. It is with great anticipation that our Commodore Perry staff looks forward to welcoming our students tomorrow to a new school year. Everyone on our CP team has worked diligently to prepare for our students’ arrival because we know that it takes every single one of us to ensure that students receive a rigorous and relevant education, connected through personal relationships and in partnership with the community. To that end, let’s start with some important communication.
First, we want to welcome three new teachers to our Commodore Perry family. Mrs. Liz Howe joins our music department; Mrs. Susan Holtz is our new school nurse and Mrs. Erica Green joins our kindergarten team.
Just as a reminder on transportation, students will only be permitted to have one pick-up location and one drop-off location. Having a different address in the AM and PM is acceptable as long as the addresses remain consistent and the same every day. Also, while bus routes will remain the same as last year, there are several changes in bus numbers that are assigned to a few routes. Last year’s Bus 8 is now Bus 5; Bus 11 is now Bus 8 and Bus 5 is now Bus 11.
Don’t forget that paying for student lunches is made easy through our electronic account, PayForIt. You can explore this option on our website by clicking on the “PayForIt” link under recent news or the parent tab on our website.
A couple of important dates include: Meet the Athlete night this Thursday, August 25th at 6:30 PM in the high school gymnasium and the first PTO meeting on Tuesday, September 6th at 6:00 in the faculty room in the elementary school hallway.
Thank you for entrusting your children to us, and we look forward to partnering with you as we cultivate your students to thrive in the 21st century!
