Welcome to Peterson Elementary School
Home of the Tigers
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.

Box Top and Soup Label Collection

For the last several years, we have participated in two programs, Campbell’s Labels for Education Program & General Mills Box Tops for Education Program that help our school with funds for new physical education equipment!We encourage you to save the UPC bar code of the Campbell’s products, and the small box top logo from General Mills products and send them to school. When they are cut, please count them and put them in a small bag and mark how many are in the bag. We give students prizes for every 5 box tops or 10 soup labels they bring in.
These two fundraising programs have provided us with funds over the years that allow us to provide wonderful opportunities for our students in P.E. Thank you for helping us continue to collect Campbell’s Labels and General Mills Box Tops.
If you have any further questions please contact Mrs. Martens (P.E. teacher) at mmartens@usd259.net.
