Welcome January! Dear Parents/Guardians,

La escuela St. Peter, dedicada a la excelencia académica, inspira a los estudiantes a convertirse en estudiantes llenos de fe y de por vida. Como comunidad multicultural, abrazamos nuestra identidad católica arraigada en las enseñanzas del Evangelio de Jesucristo.
The Christmas break helped all of us to spend time with family and enjoy some quiet moments of reflection. I would like to extend thanks from the staff and myself for all of the Christmas "goodies" and cards that you gave to us. Your kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated. It is hard to believe that January is here, and we have escaped serious weather disruptions to our school schedule. Let's see what Mother Nature has in store for us during the next couple of months.
The end of the second quarter occurs on January 22. Report cards will go home on or around February 1st. Please take some time to chat with your child about their progress up to this point in the school year. It is also a good time to reflect on goals for the second half of the school year. Be sure to contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.
Some winter reminders...Please be sure to follow established drop off and pick up procedures. These procedures are in place for the safety of all. It can be tricky when snow and ice appear on the pavement. Also, be sure your child(ren) are dressed appropriately for the frigid weather with coats, scarves, hats, and gloves/mittens. A sweatshirt is simply not enough to provide protection from the cold weather.
Catholic Schools Week is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. St Peter School observes this week with Masses, an open house and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, we focus on the value Catholic education provides to our students. The overall theme is Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed. Each day we celebrate a different category - Sunday - Parish; Monday - Community; Tuesday - Students; Wednesday - Nation; Thursday - Vocations; Friday - Faculty and Staff; and Saturday - Families. Please be sure to submit a family photo for our whole-school family tree. We asked our students to tell us what Catholic School means to them, and we received many heartfelt responses such as: "Catholic School means to me that you become the best person you can be."; "Church is great. We learn about God and Jesus and Holy Spirit. St Peter School is AMAZING!"; "We are safe and protected..."; "St Peter has brought me closer to God."; and "I feel lucky to be able to attend St. Peter School."
Our Home School Association meets every month to review fundraising opportunities and make plans for upcoming events. Our Box Top Contest runs from January 2 - February 22. The class who brings in the most box tops will earn a class pizza party! Our World's Finest Chocolate sale is underway, and runs from January 7 - March 1. Remember that 50% of the profit goes towards assessment and there is $30 profit for each box sold.
Registration is ongoing at St Peter School. It officially begins on January 28th. Financial aid application opens on February 1 to families who qualify. If you know anyone who is interested in having their child(rem) attend St Peter School, please call the school office at 203-748-2895 and speak to one of the secretaries or ask to speak to me. We invite anyone who is interested in learning more about St Peter School to attend the Open House on 1/27 or check out the school website.
God bless you!
