Pease Elementary School
Pease Elementary, in the heart of downtown Austin, is the oldest continuously operating school in the state of Texas. Pease was founded in 1876 and named after Governor Elisha M. Pease. Pease is the only all transfer school in the district. We have a diverse student population and small class size in grades K through 6. Our principal is Mrs. Donna Martinez. Pease was designated a state historic landmark in November, 2013.

UIL Volunteers Needed
We have numerous awesome bobcats signed up to participate in the May 17th UIL event, but some still need coaches. It's a great, low-impact volunteer opportunity to help great kids have a gret time while learning. Teams seeking coaches include Spelling, Number Sense, Listening, and Social Studies. Check out the flyer for more information and contact Trent Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Pease Outdoor and Science Learning Lab
The Pease Outdoor Science and Learning Lab will begin to take shape later this year. Phase one of the project will be the development of climate gardens and experiment stations near the gym. The climate gardenes will reflect four different regions and landscapes of Texas, and will include facilities for composting, a pond for water life cycle study, rainwater collection, experiment stations, and space for other projects. The project designers are working to align the project design to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills to provide opportunities to fulfill many curriculum requirements. The project has been awarded a $3000 Bright Green Futures grant from the City of Austin, and the Pease PTA has budgeted an additional $3000 for the project for the 2014-2015 school year.
