PRIDE Needs YOU!
Hello Peterson families! The Peterson Tiger PRIDE has put together a Wishlist of items we would like for our upcoming fundraisers. Please follow the below link to see where you can help us!
Arrival and Dismissal PreK-5
We are needing your help to ensure a safe dismissal for our students.
PreK AM Drop Off- There is no parking on Norman which means you will need to park in our parking lot, walk your students to the designated area, and drop off your students.
PreK PM Pick Up- You will pick your student up from the Gym door which is located next to the PreK playground in the parking lot.
K-2 Drop Off: There will be adults guiding traffic on Norman. Remember that Norman is a STOP, DROP, AND GO lane. You will pull up where the staff member is directing you, let your students out, and they will walk to door 6. If you would like to walk your students to door 6 you will need to park in the parking lot or on Delano. Please do not drop off your students in the parking lot as it's unsafe and could cause a car accident or a student to be hit.
K-2 Pickup: Guardians need to be away from Door 6 that way teachers are able to guide their students to their pickup location. You will see three flags which will be where Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders will stand. Please let the teacher walk their students all the way to the flag, high five your student good bye, and then you may take them. When you pull up on Norman street a Peterson staff member will ask you who your student is and call for your student. Please be patient if there's some back up but overall the system is quick and efficient.
3-5 Pickup and Drop Off: Pick up and drop off will be on Caddy Lane. Guardians can drop their students off in the STOP, DROP, AND GO LANE or park in the parking lot. If you are picking up your from the parking lot the students need to use the crosswalk to get to their vehicle parked in the city parking lot. Not using the crosswalk puts yourself and your child at risk of getting hit by a car. Please note the signage that's under the stop sign off Central. Do not turn left on Central from 8:30-9:30 and 3:45-4:15 as it causes back up on Caddy Lane. Last but not least please do not double park and let your students out- either be in the pickup/ drop off line, park in the city lot or Delano.

What can you do to support your child?
-> Build a strong relationship with staff
-> Share concerns with the ones staff directly
-> Ask, do not assume
-> Presume positive
-> Give your student a voice in meetings
Through positive relationships and high expectations your student WILL succeed. Please see below regarding Restorative Practices and the approach to building healthy and successful relationships.
We are moving away from the traditional discipline (suspension, loss of recess, ignore behavior, etc.) and shifting to the restorative approach (conversation, reflection, accountability). Does this mean consequences are gone and there's no accountability? NO! When giving a consequence we will give the most logical consequence to follow.
