Dear Peterson Families,

I can't believe that we have completed three weeks of school!  I am amazed every day by our amazing students and staff.  This year the theme of Northwest ISD is "Every Child, Every Day".  At Peterson we are focusing on student growth in all areas.  We want every student to feel valued, supported and challenged every day.  Thank you for partnering with us and supporting our vision!  Here are a few reminders for the week:

  • Progress Reports: Students in grades 2-5 will be receiving progress reports this week.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher(s).  
  • Curriculum Night: Please join us at 5:30 or 6:15 on Tuesday evening for curriculum night to learn more about what your child will be learning this year.
  • 5 to Thrive:  This week we are learning about Growth Mindset and 'The Power of Yet'.  We want students to look at failures and struggles as opportunities for growth and learning.  Instead of saying "I can't...", we say "I can't YET".
  • PTA- Thank you to all who have joined the PTA!  Our PTA helps our school, students and teachers throughout the year.  You can join online by going to: https://squareup.com/store/oa-peterson-elementary-pta/ Check out this video to learn more: https://www.facebook.com/officalOAP/videos/453079618615932/ 
  • Big Kahuna Fundraiser: Now through September 17th.  Thank you for supporting our school!

Important Dates:

Have a wonderful week!
