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.

Peterson Olympics
Weather permitting, Wednesday, May 13, 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 13 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.
