Principal's Message

Be a nice human.
St. Peter School, dedicated to academic excellence, inspires students to become faith-filled, lifelong learners. As a multicultural community, we embrace our Catholic identity rooted in the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ.

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.

SCRIPTURE: "For I know well the plans I have in mind for you—oracle of the LORD—plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is the time of year that is filled with mixed emotions. Our eighth graders are moving on to the next chapter in their academic career and the rest of the student population is preparing for a new grade. We say goodbye to some, hello to others, and see you next year to still other friends.

As I close out the first year at St. Peter School, I, too am filled with emotions. I am grateful for the many friends I have found this year in the parent, staff, and student population. We have faced challenges together, solved problems together, and enjoyed learning together.

With success, comes hard work! And, I can say with certainty, we all worked hard this year. Thank you for all the time and energy that helped to make this year a success. I am grateful to the many people who helped behind the scenes this year. Special thanks go to the members of the Advisory Board and the Home School Association, our cafeteria workers, bus drivers, coaches, and everyone else who helped make the year run smoothly. Without the dedication of the fabulous teachers who supported after school events and activities in addition to their regular duties and the ongoing spiritual guidance of Father Mecca, our successes would not have been realized.

Thank you for adhering to the traffic pattern...

This is a reminder that the safety of our students is of the utmost importance. In the afternoon and in the morning, folks are driving in many different directions and parking haphazardly. It is imperative for the safety of all that the traffic flow occurs in one direction - enter from Boughton Street and exit onto Wooster Street. Park sensibly in a manner that does not block the traffic pattern. Drive carefully and slowly; maintain full focus which means cell phone conversations are not appropriate when driving, especially in the crowded parking lot. In addition, please do not double park your car or leave your car unattended. As well, DO NOT PARK IN THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING TO DROP OFF YOUR CHILD. There is simply too much traffic and it interferes with bus patterns. It's a true safety concern to our school families.

Registration Update...

Registration is ongoing. If you have not yet signed up, there is still time to secure a slot for the 2019-2020 school year.

Events...

Michael Fisher was recently selected to receive the 2019 Thomas Foley Education Award. A celebration to honor Michael and all the other awardees was held at the Amber Room.

Camil Toscano was honored at the Breakfast of Champions in Bridgeport last week. He received the St Thomas Aquinas Award for excellence in academics, leadership and commitment to serving the Lord.

The Art Show at St. Peter School will be held on Wednesday, May 29 from 4:00 - 6:30. We hope to see you there as we celebrate all the wonderful artwork St. Peter School students have been creating this year.

Box Tops...

Keep clipping those Box Tops! Every Box Top helps us collect funds to support our school. Watch for changes in the coming year...

May Gospel Value - Compassion/June Gospel Value - Servant Leadership...

This year we have used our Gospel values to weave a story about what it means to do small things with great love at St. Peter School while focusing on serving others as Christ did. These values connected to our overall theme and our mission. I am proud of what our students did this year to demonstrate their love for Christ. Our elder students teamed up with younger buddies to be role models and true buddies as they celebrated reading and writing accomplishments; all of our students collected food for the local food pantry several times during the school year; throughout the year, teams of students visited with seniors at Elmwood and brightened their days; students showed team spirit on and off the court, offered prayers throughout the year for others, and willingly helped out at the school whenever a need arose.

VIRTUS Training...

If you want to be a volunteer at St. Peter School, VIRTUS training is required. If you would like to have more information about this for the 2019-2020 school year, contact Martha Correa at the school office. We encourage parents to take advantage of this opportunity.

Christopher Ripp Early Learning Program...

The Christopher Ripp Early Learning Program is funded through Foundations in Education and is a program of the Office of Superintendent. Partners include Catholic Charities and St. Peter Catholic School.

This program is designed to support St. Peter preschool families and children in their academic and spiritual journey as they experience the celebration of learning, sharing of a simple meal, power of building community, and joy of following Jesus. It runs for six weeks three times a year. Students work with certified staff members and volunteers from 3:00 - 5:30 approximately three days a week for six weeks. During this six week session, activities for students include enrichment in the following areas: Math and Literacy, Spiritual Life, Art, and Movement and Community Building. During the parent component, which occurs three times during the six week session, parents work with their children on a variety of activities and/or participate in an interactive discussion with representatives from the community.

For more information about this program, please call the St. Peter School office.

Concluding Thoughts...

Stay tuned for school supply list information, summer reading/math expectations, yearbook information, assessment results, summer camp opportunities at St. Peter, and other miscellaneous items. Communication will continue during the summer via summer newsletters, emails, or texts to keep families informed.

Thank you for a wonderful year! We accomplished many tasks this school year from our Accreditation visit to our many sports events to our academic pursuits to our servant leadership to others and many, many other accomplishments.

Enjoy time with family and friends as well as the beautiful summer days ahead! May God's blessings and peace be yours until we meet again. May God's love always make you smile. I wish you and your children the best summer ever!

May God Bless you,

Mary Lou Torre, Principal
