Miami – Dade Commissioner Katy Sorenson and the Village of Palmetto Bay’s council members will give students at Perrine Elementary Expressive Arts School a boost of school pride on Thursday, May 27.
The elected officials will co-designate a portion of SW 168th Street in front of the school (from 87th Avenue west to 90th Avenue) as “Panther Parkway” in recognition of the school’s mascot. The unveiling will take place in front of the school from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Perrine Elementary, an A-rated school, was recognized recently as a “Magnet School of Distinction” by the national organization Magnet Schools of America. It was one of only 76 schools nationwide to receive the honor this year.
“The teachers and administration at Perrine Elementary have done an amazing job in providing our students with a quality and nationally-recognized educational curriculum,” Commissioner Sorenson said. “The students of Perrine Elementary should be proud of themselves for achieving such a distinguished award.”
