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 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 have a very unique opportunity to participate in special programs. A Chinese Cultural Camp, Native American Cultural Camp and marine life camp known as Under the Sea, are examples of programs offered each year. These programs provide lifetime memories for PEER students, as well as academic, social and emotional growth.
Seventh and eighth grade students in PEER have the opportunity to participate in sports programs. For the 2011-12 school year three sports programs will be offered. Integrated into the sport program, are the tenets of character building that include: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
