Ms. Nelson's Supplies Project - UPDATE 5/7/13 - "We successfully received
another funded donors choose project! Included are new sting-free volleyballs,
fitness equipment, as well as a new scooter rack. Unfortunately we will not have
the equipment in time for this school year but it should arrive at the beginning
of next year."
I have two children at Peterson, Jake in 8th grade (it is hard to believe)
and Sadie in 5th. My husband is a mechanical engineer for an aerospace company
in Niles. We have lived on our amazing block for 18 years!
What I love most about volunteering is the happiness it gives me and spreading
that cheer. One of my favorite days of the week is Friday because I bring our
left over reusable food from the weeks lunches to the Friendship Center food
pantry, which helps feed our neighbors in need. (Thanks Ms. Litza)
IMPORTANT Notes and Dates for Middle School:
1) The IB (International Baccalaureate) programs no longer require interviews
as part of the application process. However, they now require a minimum GPA
(grade point average) of 2.5 and that you and your child attend an information
session at the school.
2) The Military Academies also no longer require interviews as part of the
application process. However, they now require students to complete a questionnaire
and essay(s), as well as attend an information session. Your child only has
to attend one information session and it can be at any of the military academies
