Dear Peterson Families,

What an amazing first Spirit Day!! We started off with Dance Friday and a lot of smiles! Our Primary classroom winner is Mrs. Munn’s class with 93% of the students participating and our Intermediate classroom winner is Ms. Falck’s class with 100% participation! They will enjoy an extra recess tomorrow. Our Primary grade level winner was Second Grade with 85% participation and our Intermediate grade level winner was Third Grade with 75% participation! Those two grade levels will get to choose where they sit tomorrow during lunch.

I have an update on the crosswalks and I truly appreciate everyone’s patience with this! The city hopes to begin the work at the end of September/early October. The crosswalks will be:

  • Mahogany and Chinaberry – North Leg
  • Chinaberry and Honey Locust – West Leg
  • Winterberry and Honey Locust – North Leg
  • Winterberry and Honey Locust – South Leg
  • Winterberry and Honey Locust – East Leg
  • Winterberry and Honey Locust – West Leg
  • Shumard Lane between Corktree and Carpenter (trail crossing)

New bike racks have been ordered and I am working with the district to have them installed on the east side of the building. I will continue to update you on this as I receive updates!

Next week, I will be sending out a Parent Engagement survey. The purpose of the survey is to learn about what types of activities/events you would like to see at Peterson, the best days and times for parents and families to participate and to obtain suggestions on how we can continue to increase our parent/family engagement.

Procedures for Rating Scales or Releases
I wanted to take a moment and be sure you were aware of proper procedures when you request your classroom teacher to complete rating scales or release educationally relevant materials to an outside provider/source:

  1. Be sure you have filled out a complete District #204 release of information form. This will allow us to send any forms/scale/reports/student information DIRECTLY TO THE PROVIDER. So, when filling out the form, please include the provider’s full name and title, their address, their phone and fax numbers.
  2. Do not send or have your child bring forms directly to their teacher. Please give these types of scales/forms to Mrs. Witkowski, the Student Services Coordinator or Don Sweeney, School Psychologist WITH the completed release of information form. They will be sure to get materials to the teacher once we have the proper releases filled out.
  3. Please know the original rating scale(s)/form(s) will be either mailed or faxed directly to the provider.  A copy of the packet (release and scales/reports) will also be provided to you.
  4. Please plan ahead. To assure teachers and the Peterson staff have proper time to distribute/complete/send materials, allow at least a SEVEN DAY window before you are to meet with the provider. In the past, people would bring in scales, without releases, and expect these to be done the next day. Please work with us to assure proper handling of these materials.
  5. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Witkowski or Mr. Sweeney.
