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. I’m momma bear.”
