A Note From Mrs. Preston
Dear Parents and Friends,
The bright binders, clean notebooks, and fresh backpacks displayed in the stores throughout the city remind us that a new school year is about to begin!
I look forward to welcoming the teachers back in the school on August 10th and our students on August 17th. We are excited to welcome two new faculty members to St.Peter’s School. Mrs. Lisa Hart will be joining Mrs. Pam Robinson in the K4 class as the lead teacher. Mrs. Hart has an MA in Early Childhood Education, over 4 years of teaching experience and two lovely children, Caleb and Peyton.
Our new second grade teacher, Mrs. Shelli Horabik, has a BA in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina. Mrs.Horabik has worked for the Lexington School District and she, too, has two lovely children, Mark and Mackenzi.
We are also pleased to welcome Dr. Andrew Kotylo, the new Director of Music and Liturgy for St.Peter’s Church. Dr.Kotylo looks forward to continuing the outstanding work done by our students in our choir, Capella Pueri, and leading all of our students in the church music ministry.
I have noted on numerous occasions how fortunate we are to have the support of our parish family. A wonderful example of this support is the happy, generous spirit of parishioners Andrea and Ken Headley. You will see this lovely couple the morning of the first day of school. Mr.Headley is our ‘parish photographer’ and he and Andrea make a point to be here every year on the first day of school to capture the moment, and welcome the students. I have come to look forward to this tradition, as much as I enjoy seeing the students walk back into the school. Mr. and Mrs. Headley’s gifts of time and joy are truly appreciated.
While it is nice having the summer months to get caught up, a school is a very different place without the students. I am confident I join our faculty and staff in expressing our excitement in starting up the 2016-17 school year!
