Visitors meet students at Evergreen Elementary during a Focus on Education tour on Friday, Nov. 18, 2022.

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.

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
