A Note from Mrs. Grant
I hope everyone enjoyed that lovely long break. This week we have Martha Dunsky coming in to read aloud her book she wrote after being inspired by the history of St. Peter’s Church and School during the Civil War. Our very own Mrs. Wyrick illustrated the book as well. She will be visiting on Thursday, February 21st at 10:30am where she will read part of her book aloud to the students and then give a presentation in the library. I know the students will love hearing the story!
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 Joseph Hauk and Danny Cox. Parents remember we still have plenty of snacks already so do not spend more than $5-$10 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!
