ASB / Leadership

The ASB officers and Leadership committees are working hard to support the students.  We hope to build a stronger community within our school and make a true difference.


Leadership is a 7th and 8th grade elective class.  This full year elective is during 3rd period daily.

Associated Student Body (ASB) officers are elected annually by the student body in May for the following year.  Each third period class elects a class representative.  ASB meetings happen monthly.  The classroom rep represents the views of his/her classroom and brings their opinions to the ASB meetings, and reports back to the class on ASB activities.

Some of the Leadership / ASB activities include:

  • A magazine/cookie dough fund raiser at the beginning of the year to earn money for the ASB to fund student activities.  
  • Dances & Social Events for all grade levels
  • Spirit Weeks (fall and spring)
  • Red Ribbon Week activities & Career Day
  • Two donation drives for non-profit organizations (i.e. food banks, Pennies for Patients, etc.)
  • Staff appreciation luncheons

Anti-Bullying Week!

Anti-Bullying Week is a great opportunity to earn spirit points for your grade by dressing up to each day's theme.

Monday (9/24): Make Someone's Day Monday

Dress up in floral print, clothing with plants on them, or even just plain green!

Tuesday (9/25): Too-Tired to Bully Tuesday

Come to school in your pijamas and bring a stuffed animal!

Note: There will be an assembly!

Wednesday (9/26): We're all Wacky Wednesday

Come to school wearing wacky clothes and a wacky hairdo!

Thursday (9/27): Thumbs down to bullying Thursday

Dress up as your favorite emoji!

Friday (9/28): Find-A-Friend Friday

Come to school as your friend's twin by wearing the same clothing!

Lunchtime Activity: Peterson is taking part in the "No One Eats Alone Campaign". This is an activity where students can promise to ask another student they normally don't sit with to sit with them. In the cafeteria, there will be a large tree. By writing your name on an apple and sticking it on the tree, you are committing to being a good friend!

ALSO: There will be a game going on at Peterson throughout Anti-Bullying Week. There will be mini blue t-shirts that have an act of kindness written on them all around campus. Your goal is to write down all 31 acts of kindness. If you get all 31, you will receive a prize!
