Peakview celebrates quarter century of community

Community.

That’s what was seen and heard and felt as hundreds of people gathered in the park adjacent to Peakview Elementary on Sept. 29. A community picnic was held to mark the school’s 25th anniversary.

“When this school was built, there wasn’t anything else around it,” said Principal Scott May. “So quite literally, the community was built around the school.”

He said the school was, and still is, the focal point of the community.

“That has a lot to do with all of you for making it that way, so thank you,” May added.

Many were new, experiencing their first year at the school. Dozens of hands went up when May asked who had been there between two and five years, then six to ten years, and so on. But only one hand went up when May asked who had been there during all 25 years of Peakview’s existence.

Lucy Bradford, the school’s PE teacher, has been there since the very beginning.

“I never thought that would happen, that I would stay one place all this time, but that’s how special I have found Peakview to be,” Bradford said. “I’ve had a former student come back and student teach with me. The families that come back, the graduates who come back while they’re in college, it’s wonderful.”

That sentiment was echoed by many other staff members and parents.

“It’s been an awesome experience here at Peakview,” said A.J. Fuller, whose son, Chris, now a fifth-grader, has attended Peakview since preschool. “Look at this community environment,” he said, as he surveyed the crowd enjoying the beautiful fall evening. “The quality education, the dedication of the teachers, how loyal they are, the quality that goes on inside the classroom … It’s amazing!”
