We are excited to announce the 2nd annual Health Science Summer Internship for students interested in pursuing a career in the medical field! This four-day experience is sponsored in partnership with St. Anthony Hospital, Cottesmore of Life Care, Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, and Gig Harbor Fire and Medic One.
The purpose of the internship is to provide an opportunity to experience real-life scenarios in various segments of medical care, develop knowledge and skills foundational to the health professional, and gain an understanding of patient assessment and care.
When: June 22-25, 2015 or August 17-20, 2015
Time: 7:30 am - 3:30 pm
Who: Incoming PSD Juniors and Seniors (Current Sophomores and Juniors)
Location: Varies daily, hosted at various sponsors
The application and references will need to be completed and submitted by April 2nd by 4:00 pm. There will be a screening process to review applications. The committee will be looking for a diverse representation of health related career interests from students.
As we prepare for the redistricting of our elementary schools and make plans to accommodate the explosive growth taking place in Gig Harbor North, new out-of-district transfer requests will be impacted as follows:
Fillable transfer forms and school district transfer policies are available online at www.psd401.net at the Family scroll down menu under the Transfers tab. Completed forms must be returned to the District office via email, post, or drop-off, no later than April 30th. If you have questions, please call Roxann Tallman at 253-530-1007.
Beginning next year, the district Highly Capable program will be changing in several key ways to better meet the needs of these students.
Below are some of the key changes for next year -- this is just a general overview. For more information, the district will be hosting a Highly Capable Program Parent Information Night on Monday night, March 2 at 6PM in the Henderson Bay High School commons.
Some of the concepts behind the changes include the need to provide more comprehensives services across the grades for HiCap students, providing differentiation for students with different highly capable profiles, and providing acceleration for students who are ready for it.

Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members:
Thank you again for partnering with the Peninsula School District to make this the best opportunity for all of our students. Many of us wear more than one of the hats that fit: staff, parents, community, and students; and we know how important it is for all of us to work together for our future. This has been a busy year with a number of new initiatives and changes with the intent of improving the educational experience for all of our students.
Here are some work efforts and information that you may find of value:
The Peninsula School Board approved the new State required graduation requirements for the class of 2019. The District conducted a series of presentations at each of our Middle Schools over the last few weeks and a copy of that presentation will be available on the website soon. High School staff will be meeting with parents of current eighth graders over the next month, prior to class registration, to review the new requirements. The State Board of Education has an overview of the new requirements. View them here.
