We recently received notice that SchoolWay will be retired as of July 1, 2019, so our schools will no longer be able to use it. Because of this, we are transitioning to SchoolMessenger.
Peary Elementary school is on the move. Tucked away inside a neighborhood on the city’s east side, the school has seen a dramatic increase in academics, attendance, and behavior. The staff and leadership of the school believe the main reason is the family atmosphere they strive to maintain in the building. “We’re the polar bear family,” explains Principal Tessa Cross. “We’re a family, it’s not ‘you’re the students, I’m the principal,’ we’re a family, I’m your momma bear and that’s seriously what we talk about.

Starting on Tuesday, Feb. 18 through Friday, Feb. 21, our Enrollment Center will be open to the public from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m.
Over the last four years, we have worked to align our district office team structures to best meet the needs of our school leaders, teachers, and families.

Phase 3 of our Budget Redesign process is ongoing and we will be holding community meetings in December.
