A Note from Mrs.Preston
Dear Parents and Friends of St. Peter’s School,
It has been a busy and successful start to the 2016-17 school year. Thank you to all who attended our Back to School Night and to those who have taken the time to read the school’s handbook. Having done this, you are well informed of the rules, procedures, and expectations of St.Peter’s Catholic School which will make the school year productive and pleasant for everyone!
I also appreciate everyone’s patience and consideration with the afternoon carpool procedures. Please be sure to use the cross walk along the Hampton Street side of the parking lot when walking with your child.
Our first fundraiser, World’s Finest Chocolate, is progressing exceptionally well. There are a few boxes remaining which need to be sold before the end date of September 13.
The first of three PTO meetings will be held on Thursday, September 22, 5:30-7:00pm in Neglia Hall. Our PTO President, Mrs. Nicole Storey reminded us that the PTO is for fundraising and fellowship! Please be sure to join us for dinner and to hear about upcoming school events and plans for the academic year.
The week of September 26-30, our students in grades 2-6 will take the standardized ITBS test and students in grades 1 and 4 will take the CoGat. Our teachers use the results of these tests to help direct instruction for the year. Please support your child’s success by making sure he/she gets a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast.
At the end of this testing week, on Friday, September 30, all of our students will be treated to a performance of “The Tortoise and the Hare” by Porkchop Productions. We are grateful to Mrs. Genevieve Sullivan ( Ava, 4th grade) who has arranged this assembly for our students.
It is such a joy to have the students back in the school after the summer months. On behalf of the faculty and staff, know that we look forward to working with each child and supporting you in the mission of developing each child’s God-given potential.
