Tuesday, Nov. 29, our 8th grade Girls Basketball team continued to roll.  In two games vs. Buchser and Don Callejon, the starters have outscored their opponents 46 to 2 in the first quarter!  The kids improved their record to 2 and 0 scoring 100 points in two games while only allowing 21.  Their 50 points per game average would beat the Peterson Girls all-time record of 43 points per game.  The unreal play has been led by point guard Natalie Getz who has scored 31 points.  Her star teammates Captain Una Jovanovic has 27 points, and Olivia Corwin has 25 points while playing superb defense!  The starting post players Amanda McDowell and Annika Slate have combined for 17 points, and 27 rebounds.  Coach Narcisso thinks this could be the best starting 5 the Peterson Girls have ever had.  Next game is Thursday, Dec. 1, at Cabrillo.

Traffic Safety Dropping Off & Picking Up Outside Main Office at Peterson

MORNING DROP OFF – Buses are to stay in line with the parents and wait their turn to get into the parking lot.  The safety of students, staff and parents comes before bus schedules.  This arrangement has been mediated by the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety. Please pull as far forward as you can.

AFTERNOON PICK UP – Parents often arrive early and beginning lining up to get their students which causes a backup on Rosalia.  Buses and vehicles that want to pass through are allowed to go around the stopped cars and enter the parking lot. There are not staff and students at this time, and parents should be in their vehicles, so the safety issue is not there.  Once the bell rings, buses and vehicles need to wait in line like everyone else until they reach the parking lot.  The safety of the students, staff and parents comes back into play when the dismissal bell rings. Please pull as far forward as you can.

DO NOT PASS A CAR OR BUS WHEN STUDENTS ARE PRESENT.  Wait your turn in line.

You may also drop off or pick up your child in the gym parking lot. 

For more traffic safety around Peterson information, please see the Traffic Safety Letter from SVDP with map in the Parent Resources locker to the left, and the Traffic Safety page under the Our School page.

If you have questions or concerns about drop off or pick up, please contact Vice Principal Andy Masur.
