Welcome to Peters Elementary!

Highly Qualified Staff

Our staff consists of numerous certified teachers and several outstanding support employees. All teachers are highly qualified in the areas they teach and believe in quality learning for all students. Therefore, they attend many professional development workshops to learn how to identify the diverse needs of students and learn research based teaching strategies that will ensure that each student progresses to their highest potential.

The teachers at Peters are also members of a professional learning community. They meet each Friday before school to engage in professional conversations that are focused on student achievement.

Time is spent during embedded collaboration to identify grade level essential skills, develop SMART goals and common assessments, analyze student data and discuss best teaching practices. 


Peters’ Parent Teacher Association (PTA) supports the mission of the national PTA and dedicates its organization to improving the education and well-being of students and teachers.

Peters Panthers School Song 

For every Peters kid is quite a treat 
We rate 100 points from head to feet 
We've got that smile, that style, that winning way 
And everywhere we go they take a look and proudly say Now, there's a kid I'd like to know 
They've got that good old Peters pep and go 
Just take one look at us, we're quite a treat 
It's hard to beat a Peters Panther! Hey!
