Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Peterson Elementary! We look forward to returning to some of our in-person events and adjusting, as may be required, to ensure the safety of our community. We are also excited to be welcoming students back on campus in our brand new, modernized classrooms.
Whether this is your first year as a Peterson Dolphin, or you are a long-standing member of this family, we are so glad that you are here! Each new school year brings excitement and anticipation, along with the promise of learning and growth. Your school and PTA have been hard at work to prepare for this year, and we know our Peterson Dolphins will get through whatever uncertainties and challenges still linger from the pandemic as we always do - TOGETHER.
Peterson is truly a special place - not just a school, but a community. Everyone works together, from teachers and staff, to parent volunteers and students, to ensure an enhanced, challenging, and rewarding academic experience for ALL students. Everywhere you turn, you will find people going out of their way to make our school a better place.
One of the best ways to become involved at Peterson is through the PTA. Every effort to participate or volunteer is vital for our school’s success. We PTA for our children, for education advocacy and to support our teachers and staff. Below are some examples of the types of support and activities the PTA generally provides to our school community:
*Studies Weekly *Teacher Reimbursements
*Whales Tales *Field Trips
*Art Education *Transportation
*Library Books *Assemblies
*Honorary Service Awards *Garden/Beautification
*Technology *100 Mile Club
*Art Reflections *Binder Reminders 3rd-5th Grades
*5th Grade Promotion *Child Well Being
If you are interested in becoming more involved in the PTA this year, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to have you. You can also follow us on our Facebook page (Peterson School & Families HB) and Instagram (@petersonelementaryhb). We post frequently and encourage you to interact there as well. We encourage you to join us at the PTA meetings throughout the year and look forward to seeing you around the community.
Best wishes for a phenomenal year!!
