As we look at the 2020-21 school year, there are many unknowns. But in times of great uncertainty, a sense of hope emerges when communities come together under a common goal.
The Peterson Elementary PTA’s mission is to assist in helping every student realize their potential by engaging and empowering them, their families and the community to work together for all children.
As a PTA, we are committed to fostering a sense of unity among families, staff and within our broader Peterson community. And no matter what this school year looks like, we are committed to ensuring that every single child feels that sense of community, connection, love and support every single day.
We want Peterson to be a place where everyone is welcomed, loved, and supported. Where everyone’s perspectives and ideas are heard and respected. Where we work together to provide our children with a strong and well-rounded educational foundation.
The PTA is here to support Peterson and thrives best when families are engaged. We are so grateful to have such a large body of parents and community volunteers, and are always happy to welcome new faces. Without volunteers, our work literally wouldn’t be possible. So THANK YOU to our new volunteers and returning volunteers!
If you are interested in becoming more involved in the PTA this year, please reach out to us on email. We’d love to have you. You can also follow us on our Facebook page and Instagram. 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.
We’re excited to be on this journey with you.
Peterson PTA President
The students, staff and parents of John R. Peterson School comprise a culturally diverse community whose purpose is to work together so all students achieve a level of literacy in English Language Arts and knowledge of mathematics that enables them to meet all State Standards and interact appropriately within our diverse society. All students will demonstrate strong character and positive values while striving to attain academic excellence.
John R. Peterson School assesses it’s effectiveness on the basis of results rather than intentions. We will continue to cultivate a collaborative culture where learning is our fundamental purpose while striving for API scores above 900.
Individuals, grade level teams and administration will regularly seek data to promote continuous improvement to ensure all students attain proficient or advanced levels on the statewide Standards assessment exams.
The school will be recognized as an inclusive community where staff, parents, administration and business partners actively work together to assure every student’s academic, social and emotional success.
Peterson PTA is a professional, non-profit volunteer organization committed to the well-being of all children and families. We connect our families, school and community.
We love our families, but while we are still under the Distance Learning model, we'd prefer a call to an in-person visit.
