We are giving the students of Peterson Elementary more opportunities.


The Friends of Peterson is a fundraising organization. Its goal is to raise funds to help support the students and staff at Mary Gage Peterson Elementary School.



Thank You for supporting Peterson Elementary at the
5th Annual Beer for Books!

With your support, we were able to raise more than $50,000
for Peterson Elementary!
