Principal's Message

Good Afternoon,


Thank you so much for your support, patience, and understanding as we navigated our first two days of Remote Learning! There were many successes as well as some obstacles, but we faced them together and persevered because we are Peterson Strong!


There has been some confusion regarding accessing our specials - music, art, and PE. I've recorded a video to help you and the students. Here is the video: https://www.wevideo.com/view/1821056922


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I'll "see" the students on Tuesday at 9:00 am for announcements!


Best,

Alli Landstrom

Curriculum Night, 9/9

Curriculum Night will be on Wednesday, September 9th. Like many things, it will be a little different this year! Around noon on Tuesday, September 8th, you will receive the Curriculum Night presentation as well as a Zoom Links for Wednesday evening. The presentation will be narrated by the classroom teacher. On Wednesday Evening, September 9th, we will offer two Q and A sessions via Zoom.
  • Session A: 6:00-6:30
  • Session B: 6:45-7:15.
All teachers of the grade level will be in each session. We hope this structure provides both information as well as a chance to ask clarifying questions!

Parent University - Chromebooks

If you are a parent of a student in Kindergarten, First, Second grade, or a new Peterson student, I would highly encourage you to watch the Parent Univesity - Chromebooks video. The topics include an overview of Chromebook basic functions and Google tools students will use during the school year. Here is the link to the video: https://youtu.be/vgjqUsxEWh8
