Message from the Principal

Principal Photo
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dawn Perry and I am the new Principal. I feel very blessed to be here and look forward to meeting you all!

To give you a little background, my life goal has always been to help and serve people, which will become more apparent as you read on and learn more about me over time.

I received my BS in Elementary Education from Wesley College in 1997 and my Master’s degree in Instructional Leadership from University of Delaware in 2012. Immediately after my undergraduate degree, I taught elementary school for one year and middle school English Language Arts for two years.

I then changed my career and became a police officer. I served three years as a Delaware State Trooper and a year and a half in Las Vegas. During that time, I received several awards for my work and gained experience in various areas of law enforcement.

After my son was born, I decided to re-enter the field of education. For the next five and a half years I taught middle school English Language Arts in Dover, Delaware and earned my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I have been providing professional development, mentoring education majors, student teachers, and heavily involved with curriculum development over the years. A little over a year ago, my husband's job relocated us to Pennsylvania, where I taught 5th grade at Nativity of our Lord in Warminster.

My heart and soul is dedicated to helping others. In all my experiences, I have found no greater way to do this than to serve our community by educating our children and assisting our teachers who educate our children.

Please feel free to contact me anytime at:

I am looking forward to serving Holy Cross School!

God Bless,
Dawn Perry
