DROP OFF & PICK UP

Below is the traffic pattern for parents who drop-off & pick-up their children. 
Doors open at 7:40 a.m.  Students should not be dropped off before 7:40.  Student pick-up begins at approximately 2:45 p.m. All students must be picked up by 3:00 p.m.  Parents should stay in their vehicles and follow the traffic pattern.  For safety, teachers will use walkie talkies to call students out to vehicles.  Teachers and paraprofessionals will walk students to vehicles.  
We ask parents who walk to school to pick-up their children to wait on the sidewalk outside of the school (near front doors) until cars are off of King Avenue.  Once car riders are loaded, we will call students who are walking home to the sidewalk.
For the first 4 days of school, when we have more supervision, parents can walk their child/children to class. Beginning on 8/12/19, parents must stop at the glass safety doors.  
If you want to walk your child/children to class during the first four days, please park in the parking lot (away from the flow of the traffic pattern) and hold your child’s/children’s hand(s) as you walk to the front doors. 
For safety, we do not allow early dismissals after 2:15 p.m. If your child has a medical appointment after school, please pick-up your child before 2:15 p.m.
For safety,  we have a front door buzzer system near the front door on the far right & cameras at each entrance/exit.

Principal's Message

 Meet Ms. Hipes

I am very honored to be the principal at William Perry Elementary School!  This is my 28th year in education and my 4th year as principal at WPE.  My teaching career in Waynesboro Public Schools began at WPE in 1999 and I taught at WPE for nine years!  Those nine years were the best years of my career and I feel like I have returned home!   

I am now experiencing the privilege of interacting with children of my former WPE students!   I am so proud of my former students and the parents they have become!

After leaving William Perry, I had the pleasure of teaching health and physical education at Waynesboro High School for three years. I also had the opportunity to coach during much of my teaching career in Waynesboro.  After teaching at WHS, I was one of the assistant principals at Kate Collins Middle School for four years.  It was really amazing to be able to see my former William Perry students grow and develop into young adults while I was at WHS and KCMS. 

Prior to teaching in Waynesboro, I taught middle school math, reading, writing and mostly science in both Rockbridge and Augusta County.  

William Perry Elementary School:

We have an AMAZING group of approximately 430 students at William Perry Elementary School!  Teachers and staff work very hard to establish good relationships with students, families and one another.   Our REMARKABLE faculty and staff have high expectations for themselves, each other and for our students.  They are highly qualified, nurturing, creative and inspiring!  They work diligently to provide the best education possible for all students by monitoring student progress on a regular basis in all core subjects and beyond.  

Teachers will communicate with you throughout the year regarding the progress that your child is making in all areas.   However, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher(s) or our office at anytime throughout the year if you have concerns or celebrations!

An important component to academic success is parent involvement and excellent attendance.  Here are just a few ways to stay involved and boost your child’s success:

  • Be one of our WATCH DOGS
  • Complete a volunteer application and volunteer
  • Chaperone a field trip
  • Stay in contact with your child’s teacher (phone, email, or face-to-face meeting) (Attend parent-teacher conferences)
  • Eat lunch with your child (no fast food please)
  • Attend a Parent-Teacher Organization Meeting
  • Help with a PTO event
  • Attend a family movie night
  • Bring the Family to Reading Night or Math Night
  • Make attendance a priority (avoid tardies/early dismissals)

 Our 2018-2019-school theme this year is BE!

BE! 

BE Here!  BE on time! BE ready to learn!

We focus on our Panther P.A.W.S in order to BE AMAZING!:

Practice Respect!

Accept Responsibility!

Work Together!

Stay Safe!

 

WE ARE READY TO BE respectful, BE responsible, BE a family & BE safe for another FANTASTIC YEAR! 

 

WE ARE READY FOR A PAWS-ITIVE SCHOOL YEAR!  We look forward to working collaboratively with parents and community members to provide our students with a safe, authentic, well rounded and engaging learning environment that focuses on high expectations that will prepare students to be responsible and successful students and citizens during their middle school years and beyond.   

Thank you for continuing to partner with us to make a difference in your child’s education and future.
