Peter G. Schmidt Elementary, located on 14.8 acres at 225 Dennis St. SE. The first building was constructed in 1957, while additions, remodeling, and renovations were done in 1963, 1978, 1990, 1996 and 2006. The District’s 2014 bond allowed for a new building to be constructed while keeping the existing gymnasium and adding a demising wall on the north side that connects to the new building. The current facility is 60,000 + square feet with 4 portables and the Library from the previous building. It houses Kindergarten through 5th grade.
The staff at Peter G. Schmidt holds the fundamental belief that all children can learn given a safe emotional and physical environment. Our staff is committed to working collaboratively with parents and the community to create a nurturing yet challenging atmosphere in which students work towards mastery of the Common Core Standards in all core subjects.
Our educational programs are designed to meet students at their current academic abilities and help them continually succeed. In addition to teaching the basic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics, we work to instill the values of being safe, respectful, responsible and kind. Students are taught to be participating citizens who have the ability to influence their environment.
