Free ESL (English) Classes

The PAC is interested in bringing free ESL classes to Peterson for parents and other caregivers. If you or someone you know is interested, please complete our survey so we know if there is sufficient interest and when these classes would be most convenient.  The survey is offered in English, Spanish, Arabic, & Urdu.

The PAC was created to help support the role of parents and the school as equal partners in children’s education. The primary purpose of the PAC is to empower parents to inspire and assist their children in achieving their educational goals.
