Principal's Message

I am excited to welcome both our new and returning students and families to Peterson Elementary for the 2023-2024 school year.  Our PTA is in full swing planning our yearly activities and fundraisers. The Peterson staff is committed to promoting academic, personal, and social excellence on campus. We have a vision of inspiring learners to be curious, creative, and caring.

The academic success of all our students requires the dedicated work of every single staff member on campus in addition to the tireless commitment of each student’s family and community support network.  We continue to perform above state average in English Language Arts and Math, and our English Learner population performs well above average.

Academic achievement requires a team effort of staff and parents.  In an effort to strengthen this team, we work diligently to keep you informed as to your student’s progress, school events, and support services.  To that end, please ensure that all contact information remains current throughout the year by logging in to your account and updating your student’s information any time there are changes.  

We ask you to work with us in ensuring student safety is everyone’s number one priority. Our amazing crew of parent and community volunteers, as well as ALL campus visitors, MUST enter through the front office and MUST be checked in and out via the Raptor system.  Thank you in advance for your dedication and cooperation, we simply couldn’t do it without you!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  You may stop by or call the office to set up an appointment or simply email me directly at
