Help us meet our 1 million minutes community reading goal
We want to give a big THANK YOU to all the community members who celebrated American Education Week with PSD at our schools.
Many of you joined Artondale, Pioneer, Swift Water, and Evergreen elementary school students and educators to learn about day-to-day activities, and see our newly constructed buildings. The students enjoyed showing off their classrooms, and visitors enjoyed exploring flex spaces, seeing student art, and witnessing learning in action.

Calling all readers! You can support our youngest learners by reading in our elementary schools!
Now until Friday, Dec. 16, we are inviting guest readers to share their favorite book, or read a book provided to them, to help all children recognize the importance of literacy.

The Peninsula School District (PSD) Board of Directors unanimously approved a Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy and a Safety, Security and Technology Levy at its November 9 Regular Business Meeting. Both levies will be put to voters on the February 14, 2023 ballot.
Don’t forget! There is no school on Friday, Nov. 11, in honor of Veterans Day.
Enjoy a three day weekend, and we’ll see you on Monday!
November is Native American Heritage Month, and we want to honor our students and families with Native American Heritage.
Did you know?
- There are 574 different Native American Tribes in the United States, and 29 of those tribes reside in Washington State?
- The closest Native American Tribe is the Puyallup Tribe of Indians?
- There are over 200 students at the Peninsula School District with Native American Heritage?
This month we want to honor their heritage and continue to learn about our local tribe's history and culture. Learn about PSD's Native American Education Program at this link - https://bit.ly/NativeAmericanEducationPSD.
