A Note from Mrs. Grant

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!

There will be no Snack Shack this week. The next Snack Shack will be on Friday, December 6th. The managers will be Camilla Salas and Connor Williamson. There will be a schedule for January going home in the Tuesday folder in December. Please look for it. Thank you for your support!

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!
