Principal's Message

Principal's Message - September 2018


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.

Dear Family and Friends of St. Peter School,

We have had a wonderful start to the school year, albeit a hot one! It is an exciting time as the students meet their new teachers and reacquaint themselves with dear friends. I have had a chance to meet the students in every classroom in two short days. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I will be back in the classroom spending time sharing a favorite book with them.

Our annual theme this year is "Doing Small Things With Great Love." This theme, combined with our mission statement and Gospel values, will be a vehicle to highlight our successes and strengthen our relationships with one another. We will weave a story about what it means to do small things with great love at St. Peter School while we focus on serving others as Christ did. Stay tuned for more information as the months unfold.

We look forward to seeing families during Open House nights this month. The K-5 Open House will be on September 13 and the 6-8 Open House will be on September 18. This will be a time to learn about the curriculum your children will be studying this year as well as a time to meet your child's teacher. Due to time constraints, this is not a time for personal conversations about individuals. If you need to talk to your child's teacher privately, you are invited to make an appointment to meet with the teacher.

We continue to work on our dismissal procedures to ensure that students and families are safely united at the end of the school day. We will keep you updated on this process as we improve on it daily. With regard to arrival, be sure that you are aware of pedestrians and other drivers in the parking lot. Proceed slowly and cautiously. Survey the area before backing up or pulling forward to ensure the safety of all. As cars enter the parking lot from Boughton Street, bear to the left of the cones if you are going to drop off your child at the gate. Bear to the right of the cones if you are planning to walk your child to the front door of St. Peter School. DO NOT enter the St Peter School parking lot from Wooster St in the morning as cars will be using that area as a port of departure.

Our First Friday Mass will occur this Friday and will be facilitated by our eighth grade students at St. Peter Church.

This promises to be an exciting school year! I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you this year. In recalling the opening sentiment of the meeting with all teachers, staff, and administrators at the Catholic School Convocation, I am reminded of this message from Superintendent Cheeseman: "We are called to a sacred duty to educate each child to the maximum of his or her ability." It is truly our mission.

In Christ,

Mary Lou Torre, Principal
