PEER (Phoenix Elementary Enrichment Resources) is a before and after school program provided at no cost to students of working parents in Phoenix Elementary School District #1. PEER provides a safe, enriching and fun environment for our students beyond the classroom. It serves students between the hours of 6:30 am or 7:00 am and 6:00 pm (before and after school based on the bell times at each school). PEER is also open during spring and fall breaks and during the summer months. In fact, the only times that PEER is not available to students is during the winter break and approximately eight days in the summer.
The programs and activities in PEER are designed to include sports, recreation, arts, music, culture and academics to develop “the whole child” even beyond the regular school day, during fall/spring breaks and during the summer months.
Cultural Camps and Thematic Programs at PEER are incredibly popular with the students and parents. During the week of fall and spring break or the summer program, when school is not in session, PEER students often have the unique opportunity to participate in special programs such as A Chinese Cultural Camp, Native American Cultural Camp, a marine life camp known as Under the Sea, or Put Your Wild On, provided by Liberty Wildlife. These are just a few examples of our unique programs that provide lifetime memories for PEER students, as well as academic, social and emotional growth.
