Out & About in Perrin

Excitement, school lock-down and other events in Perrin


A retirement party was held for Renee Francis on Jan. 31. She is retiring following 28 years of teaching at Perrin-Whitt Consolidated ISD. Congratulations to Renee.

Mary Oleksyn participated in the Fort Worth Stock Show, placing second in her age division in the creative costume contest, and placing second in the American Premier Boer Goat show for four-tooth commercial does. In the Yellow Rose Classic Boer Goat show, she placed first in the four-tooth commercial does and went on to win grand champion commercial doe.

There are 5-by-7-foot Perrin-Whitt Pirate flags for sale. Flags are $15 each and may be purchased at the school office. These are individual navy-blue flags.

The Lady Pirate’s softball team schedule had to be altered due to the girls advancing in the basketball playoffs. As of now, their first game will be Tuesday, Feb. 19, 7 p.m., at home against Paradise.

The first Pirate baseball scrimmage will be at Valley View Tuesday at 5 p.m.

Preschool story time will take place in the school library Wednesday, 10-11 a.m. For more information, see B. J. Cox in the library.

Perrin High School will be performing “Now that April’s Here,” by James Reach, for the district University Interscholastic League One-Act Play competition. District competition is March 23, in Ranger, Texas. The cast and crew will present a school showing and a community showing of the play. Dates are still to be determined.

Participants in this year’s play include Eric Hall, Jake Hall, Mackenzie McGee, Haylee Fowler, Meggan Jump, Sydney Beck, Jayci Miller, Jennifer Fincher, Joy Blackmon and Brandon Trigg. Alternates and crew are still being recruited.

Thought for the week: “It would not be so bad to let one’s mind go blank – if one always remembered to turn off the sound.”
