Welcome to Peterson Elementary School
Home of the Tigers
Little Red
Welcome to Peterson, where Peterson Tigers show their PRIDE each day. We are an elementary school on the west side of Wichita with a proud history and strong tradition in academic excellence and connection with the community. Peterson students work to demonstrate honorable character traits each day by demonstrating “Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, and Doing our best to achieve Excellence.” This phrase represents our guidelines for success and is where we get our PRIDE acronym. 

To the left is "Little Red," the original Peterson school.

Hello WatchDOG dads. We need your help! The WatchDOG team will be hosting a cookout for the staff of Peterson Elementary for teacher appreciation week on Tuesday, May 3. We would like to have as many dads as possible to help set up, cook burgers, serve, and clean up after. We need help from 10:30 to 1:30. You can help the whole time if you want or just for a portion of the event. If you are interested in helping, please contact Mike Wallace, our Top Dog, at petersonwatchdogs2@gmail.com
Peterson Olympics
Weather permitting, Wednesday, May 18, all students will be participating in our annual “Peterson Olympics”. Cooperation, participation and good sportsmanship have always been an important part of the Olympics, and that is true of our Olympics as well. During the Olympic events you will see students demonstrating their awesome skills, having fun together and showing their Olympic spirit!
Make plans to come Wednesday, May 18 to watch the fun and share in the sporting friendship represented by the Olympic rings. Your presence will not only show Peterson students you support their efforts in physical education, but will also add to the atmosphere of the Olympics. If you cannot attend, take time to talk to your children about their participation in the events. If you have any specific questions please email mmartens@usd259.net (Monica Martens)!
