Operating as usual
The Artondale Elementary School community came together to celebrate the official ribbon-cutting yesterday! Thank you voters for saying YES to the 2019 bond and making this beautiful school possible. More than 500 guests, including four generations of Artondale Otters, joyfully celebrated wearing awesome custom t-shirts provided by the Artondale PTA. Artondale is the 4th of four elementary schools built in just 3 years!
We celebrated Evergreen Elementary School’s ribbon cutting today! Completed a year ahead of schedule, Evergreen continues to be at the heart of the Key Peninsula community. The new school replaces the eight classroom, 1955 building with 20 spacious classrooms, a library, maker space, music room with stage, full kitchen, a community room and large grass playfields. Dozens of community members provided input on the initial design of the school, and The Longbranch Foundation donated a beautiful hand-sewn quilt.
Evergreen is the third of four Peninsula School District elementary schools funded by the 2019 bond - thank you voters!
Amazing celebration at Swift Water Elementary School ribbon-cutting this evening! Thank you to our voters for passing the 2019 bond that made this beautiful new school (along with THREE others!) a reality for our children and our community.
Great meeting with Superintendent Bahr! We are excited to have her leading our district and look forward to continue working together for our schools and community!
Peninsula School District celebrated groundbreaking at Kopachuck and Key Peninsula Middle Schools today! Both schools will be renovated and expanded, with an expected completion end of 2022.
These two projects are in addition to the four promised elementary schools in the 2019 Bond, and were made possible due to construction cost savings and leveraged state funds.
Thank you to everyone who helped us pass the bond. None of this would be possible without you!
February 12th... and with more snow in the forecast, let us remember what we were doing two years ago today! 🖤💛🙌

After hard work, heartbreaks, and finally success, today we opened the doors to Peninsula School District's first new elementary school in 34 years.

Congratulations to Pioneer Elementary School for being the first of four new elementary schools!
