District News & Announcements
The Ankeny Community School District is deeply saddened to inform you of a death in our school community.  On Saturday morning, July 25, Coordinator of Communications Jarrett Peterson passed away.
 
“The Ankeny Community School District lost an outstanding member of our administrative team, and more importantly, a great person this past weekend, "said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Bruce A. Kimpston. "I had the privilege of working closely with Jarrett during the past five years. He created, developed, and set a standard of excellence for communications in the Ankeny Community School District."
 
Peterson began with the district in 2008 as the first Coordinator of Communications.   He won numerous awards from the Iowa School Public Relations Association (ISPRA) and the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) for his work in the district. In 2014 he was named ISPRA’s Communicator of the Year. The honor included specific recognition for having the state’s best school district newsletter and his office’s creation of exemplary bond referendum materials.
 
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Jarrett's wife, Melanie, daughters Kjistine and Rachel and family. One cannot possibly imagine the grief that comes with this sudden loss, and I would ask the Ankeny community to come together in support of Jarrett's family.” Dr. Kimpston stated.
 
Visitation for Mr. Peterson will be Wednesday, July 29 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at Lutheran Church of Hope, 520 NW 36th Street in Ankeny.  A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, July 30 at 10:00 a.m. also at Ankeny's Lutheran Church of Hope.  The family is welcoming friends and family to share stories during the service.
