A Note from Miss Geene

This week we welcome Ms. Boron back to St. Peters! We also have a short week due to a Teacher In-service day on Friday. The sixth grade also has a field trip to Cardinal Newman Thursday from 8am-1pm. I also look forward to seeing you all at the PTO Halloween party Thursday, October 25th at 5:30pm in Neglia Hall.

There will be no Snack Shack this week because the students are not here on Friday. The next Snack Shack will be on Friday, November 9th. The Snack Shack managers on November 9th will be chosen by me during the week. I will be bringing in the snacks during this week. 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!
