A Note from Miss Geene

Can you believe it is almost time for Thanksgiving break? Here at St. Peter’s the students know they have a lot to be thankful for! They have supportive families, shelter, and they have the gift of receiving a Catholic education. I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!

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!
