The Perry Township Education Foundation is pleased to announce a fresh new logo and look and a brand new website to be released this fall! Executive Director Hannah Dale states, “After 22 years of serving Perry Township Schools, it was time to refresh our look in order to reflect our mission of giving creative and innovative educator grants to the staff of Perry Township Schools. We want to make sure our logo and website adequately reflect the passion we have for our schools, staff, and students.”
With the help of Jackson Sky Web Design and Development, the Perry Township Education Foundation has been able to go on a journey to better develop tools that will help share its message with schools, supporters, and the community. The new logo utilizes the township’s prominent colors, red and blue, along with wings depicting the township’s two mascots, the Cardinal and Falcon. The new website will be much more interactive for visitors and will share recent news, event information and registration, along with specific profiles highlighting the grants currently being utilized within the school system. Giving will also be available along with links to social media platforms.
The Perry Township Education Foundation is a grant making organization that raises funds to support innovative and creative programs that enhance learning throughout Perry Township schools.
