It is my pleasure to welcome you to R. F. Pettigrew Elementary. My staff and I look forward to working with the children in our southwestern community of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, as they learn and grow this school year. We know that the most important adults in children’s lives – parents, guardians, grandparents, etc. – are their “first” teachers, and so we offer our support to them in this important role. We wish to partner with them in educating and preparing all our children for our ever-changing world.

Our school’s priority is to help each of our students reach their learning potential and to be successful socially in our changing world. Community and family involvement in a child’s education is very important. We encourage as much involvement as possible and invite our school community to consider the many ways they can be involved in these educational pursuits and efforts. There are many opportunities to engage in a child’s year of learning. We truly live, work and learn in a global society, and we want to continue to produce active and successful citizens in this society.

If you have questions, concerns, or comments at any time during the school year, do not hesitate to call or reach out to us. We value communication with the various entities within our community and seek to respond in a timely and efficient manner. We are invested in the education of our children with you, our community member, whether you live next door to our school, or are reading this from across the world, but have a connection with a student or staff member at school. Please join us on this exciting and wonderful journey into our collective futures!

Sincerely,
Mr. Kevin Dick
R. F. Pettigrew Elementary Principal
