Culminating Projects 2015-2016 and Beyond
The school board, based on district recommendation and results of a recent survey of parents and staff, has decided not to continue requiring a senior culminating project as a graduation requirement in the Peninsula School District. This decision was made due to the changing state standards and graduation requirements, specifically that the culminating project was removed as a graduation requirement during the 2014 legislative session. We recognize the value of many components of the culminating projects and will look for opportunities to embed them within our curriculum.
Update on Driver Education Courses
At this time, it is necessary for the Peninsula School District to focus all Driver Education resources on providing opportunities for students who have completed their classroom work to complete their drives. For this reason, the District will not be offering the Driver Education Classroom Course for the summer of 2015. Interested students/parents should check their school websites in August for further updates on the status of Driver Education in the fall.

This coming summer we are holding the second annual Summer Bridge program for incoming 9th grade students and those that are new (in any grade), to the district, The goal is to assist our new students to making connections with their peers, learn from those that are current students, and learn from staff about content centered skills that will assist them in all of their classes.
The Summer Bridge program runs August 17th & 18th. If you are interested in attending click here.
