Principal's Corner

Where Principal Raven Coit posts notes and updates.


Dear Peninsula Families,

June 2022

It’s almost summer! We are looking forward to river days and fun with friends and family, not to mention a lot of dreaming and preparing for next school year, which begins on August 18, 2022.

This month, our equity theme is gratitude. On behalf of all of the staff here at Peninsula School, I want to thank you all for your communication and teamwork as we work together to educate and care for the children. We are a team, and we are grateful you’re on our team and in our school family.

Before we finish out this year, please stop by the coat hooks in the yellow hallway to gather all of your students’ lost and forgotten jackets!

Our last day of school is on June 8th, 2022. Students will be released early that day, at 1:40 p.m. On that day we will be celebrating our graduating 8th graders, and all of our students for persevering, and growing so much this school year.

Finally, we invite you to register now for school next year! You can pick up a paper packet at our office, or download the registration packet here:

If you have any questions or need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to call us.

Thank you for all you do to help us all succeed.
