There’s a new student group looking to make lasting changes at Gig Harbor High School (GHHS). The Black Student Union (BSU) began meeting in January and is already planning ways to create a more inclusive environment for all of their peers.
Reading leads to lifelong success
Our goal is having 100% of 3rd grade students reading proficiently by 2026.
And we need YOU to reach this goal.
To reach our vision, we need our families and community as partners.
The Peninsula School District is spearheading a community-wide effort to promote literacy development in young children. We want community members of any age to be a part of this plan.
The Peninsula School District and our partners will host a series of community activities to promote reading and literacy across the Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula communities. Events will include:
- Special guest readers at our schools;
- Community activities at our local businesses and public spaces;
- Special support from our local businesses and libraries;
- School Reading Nights, and more!
let's meet our 1 million minutes community reading goal
Peninsula School District invites everyone in the community to join us in reaching our goal to read 1 million minutes by the last day of school, June 21, 2023.
Pen Light and the Peninsula School District have collaborated to launch a ‘minutes read’ collection webpage as part of Peninsula Reads. Peninsula Reads is a community-wide effort to promote literacy development in young children by engaging community members of all ages in activities that support the importance of early literacy. When you’ve completed your reading activity, simply sign in and record how many minutes you read!
Use this tool to log your reading minutes.
The Peninsula School District is seeking an outstanding Assistant Principal who is a strong instructional leader, understands learning and child development, demonstrates intellectual curiosity, brings a growth mindset, and has a passion for helping students succeed.
