The Eagle Marathon is Here!

4/24/2024 9:46 am

Last week our students started making strides to run 26.2 miles during lunch recesses.  Our Eagles are running, walking, skipping and hopping their way around a designated loop in front of the school.  We are tracking their miles and celebrating when they complete each mile. Please help us cheer our students on to 26.2!

A few reminders for your student:

  1. HAVE FUN! It is not about finishing first, but rather having fun, setting a goal and accomplishing it.  We want to remind our students to stay on the course (no cutting the corners) and listen to instruction when it is time to stop. 

  2. STAY SAFE! Students get excited and we love that!  However, please remind your students to watch where they are running/walking, stay to the side if they need a break to make room for those running through and to keep their hands to themselves.

  3. REMIND THEM THEY ARE DOING AWESOME! We are so impressed with everyone who has participated.  We have seen hard work, determination and lots of laughter so far.  Whether they run 1 lap or finish a marathon, these students should be proud of themselves for getting out there and running!


VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED.  We're looking for volunteers Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays until May 31 to help track miles. There are multiple time slots of just 45 min. increments.  It is a great way for family members to get involved.  All you have to do is sign-up for the lap tracker app on your phone, hit start and scan as our students complete each lap.  The app will track all student progress as they run to 26.2 miles!  Questions, email us at Sign up today here!



In just 1 week of running, our Eagles have accomplished so much:

  • 2,047 - Total miles run as a school

  • 13,562 -Total laps run as a school

  • 2nd - The grade that has run the most miles so far

  • 12.6 - The most miles run by one student

  • 507 - The number of students who have run 1 lap or more out of 594 students

Volunteer Spotlight: Joe Dobner, the Enthusiastic Eagle!

4/24/2024 9:40 am

There's a dedicated volunteer behind the scenes of many of our exciting events, and he's more elusive than you might think! Joe Dobner has been our amazing eagle mascot throughout this year and even on several occasions over the last 5 years. His enthusiasm shines through that costume, and he happily rearranges his schedule to make sure our mascot is there to energize the kids. Joe's great interactions with everyone always add an extra layer of fun.  And the best part? The kids still haven't figured out who he is! (Shhh…don't tell them!)

During Soar into Spring week, Joe was in over 330 photos with students, parents, younger siblings, and staff. That's a staggering number of smiles he helped create! We are even more grateful for Joe's commitment – he even used his own sewing kit to repair the costume to keep our mascot looking sharp!

Thank you, Joe, for your fantastic spirit and dedication!

The Eagles are Soaring! It may feel like a distant memory, but we continue to reflect on Soar into Spring week and what a tremendous success it was. We are excited to report that the Eagles are Soaring!  


We soared past our $13,000 fundraising goal with $27,091.56 raised! Also, we exceeded our $8000 passive fundraising goal through Dance Party and Spirit Wear sales. Go, Peter Kirk Eagles! 


Because of you the PTSA is fully funded this year. THANK YOU!

2nd Grade Garden - Spring Update

4/24/2024 9:33 am

Peter Kirk 2nd Graders were busy last fall learning about mason bees and planting spring flower bulbs, kale and herbs in the garden beds. Spring is the time of year when students are back in the garden to harvest and clean-up the beds to prepare them for summer flowers, and to learn about mason bees first hand. The kids have been so efficient that we are cancelling the May 11 community garden bed clean-up. Enjoy the wonderful spring weather and we wish you and your families a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!
