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.

Peterson PRIDE Service Project
We stuffed the bus!
Stuff the Bus was held at our school on Friday, November 14. Thanks to the Peterson PRIDE committee, students, staff, and parents, it was a great success. We stuffed the bus with over 1,000 items for families in crisis. Way to go, everyone!


Author Visit
Kansas author, Jefferson Knapp, came to visit the students of Peterson. He shared silly stories from his childhood and talked about how he got ideas for his books. He even stayed and had lunch with the Battle of the Books team. Thanks for a wonderful visit, Jefferson!
Mr. Knapp is willing to fill orders for his books through November 25. These orders should be turned in to Mrs. Morgan in the library. Each book is $15 (discounted from regular price) and will be signed by the author. He also has bookmarks available for 50 cents each. Those can be paid for in the library as well.
Watch the book trailers for all of Jefferson Knapp's books from his series, A Kingdom at the end of the Driveway.
