Perryville High School Launches Character
Education Program for Students
"Pitching Horseshoes" is a character education program for Perryville High School that will allow us as educators to teach students to not only be good students but productive citizens as well. This system will teach students good habits, attitudes, and attributes. These are things that students can begin to build on and will ultimately affect their future choices. This character education program is meant to build productive individuals that can conform to the goals that society sets before them.
This program is meant to create a positive school culture that sets the vision of our school: to teach students to be effective, productive citizens. As educational leaders, we need to emphasize good behavior and not focus on bad behavior. The students’ positive behavior will be rewarded, not just their academic success. We will look for good character in all students. Every student will be included and considered for this program. "Horseshoes" (which is what Mustangs wear) will be awarded to students that show good behavior.
It is our hope that by letting the community be aware that the people of Perryville will see a positive change in our students.
East End School Students - Bring Your Own Device
As schools increase the use of technology to improve student success, many districts are moving to BYOD - Bring Your Own Device. Rather than the school providing all the computer equipment students need, students in the East End School District will be allowed to bring their own devices... be it laptop computer, tablet or smartphone. Technology and particularly technology with which students are personally familiar is key as the district prepares students for their future. Here's the district handbook and guidelines.
East End Opens New Bigelow High School
With a ribbon cutting and open house at 7:00pm Thursday, August 15, 2013, the East End School District opens the new Bigelow High School.
In September 2011, the Bigelow and surrounding community passed a 3.53 mileage to build a new Bigelow High School addition. With approximately $1.9-million from state facilities funding, this project was made possible by the hard work and dedication of the community, school board and others.
In order to build the new addition, older facilities were removed. The Burge-Risner gym, family and consumer sciences building and maintenance house were removed. In preserving the tradition of the gym that served the community for over 70 years, rock from the gym was incorporated into the front of the Bigelow High School and three arches at the entrance were built to complement the existing rock arch and show respect for traditions of the community.
Superintendent, Dr. Eric Saunders said, "We are looking forward to using the new facility that includes classroom, a family and consumer science lab, agriculture shop, offices and a PE/auditorium area. May this facility serve the community for as long as many facilities before it."
