A Note from Miss Geene

Thank you to all the parents who attended the St. Peter’s Auction. It was nice seeing you all. Monday, February 12 is a 2pm dismissal. Friday, February 16 is an In-service day for teachers.

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack has been going well and the students are having a great time selling the snacks and seeing the results of their hard work on the financial report! This week our Snack Shack managers are Corey Avila and Milton Cuapio. Parents remember we still have plenty of snacks already so do not spend more than $10-$15 on snacks. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor.

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
