Principal for a Day

Teacher for a Day Will Lukken had some fun activities planned for fifth grade.  Students were tasked with creating a contraption that would protect an egg if it were dropped a distance of ten feet.  Materials were handed out and students were able to craft a unique design alone, with a partner or as a part of group of three.  Only two eggs survived- ask a fifth grader to tell you how!

Fifth grade recently visited the National Archives.  While there, the students were able to see the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.  Since we just finished studying the founding documents, it was amazing to see the documents on display.  We spent the afternoon digging through classified documents, putting together puzzles, and studying the history of the United States.  We look forward to our next field trip!

Entering its 145th year of service to the Capitol Hill community, St. Peter School was nationally recognized as “Exemplary High Performing,” a category in which private schools are recognized among the nation’s top performing schools. St. Peter School was one of only two schools awarded in the District of Columbia! The Department of Education will honor 236 public and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony on Nov 18-19 here in Washington. In its 31-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed this coveted award on nearly 7,500 of America’s schools. “Excellence in education matters and we should honor the schools that are leading the way to prepare students for success in college and careers,” said Secretary Duncan. “National Blue Ribbon schools represent examples of educational excellence, and their work reflects the belief that every child in America deserves a world-class education."
