Parents, you too can participate by sending a Valentine to students, teachers, and staff! Purchase your cards from a 2nd grader at morning drop off,  fill it out and return it to one of the safety patrols who will make sure the post cards are placed in the mailboxes. Life size mailboxes will be placed around the school so students can "mail" their purchased post cards to friends, teachers, and staff.

This week, the students of St. Peter School worked together in their "Student Families" to support the Macy’s and Make-A-Wish® Believe campaign and wrote letters to Santa asking him to grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions in cities across the country. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1,000,000. It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to make a real difference in the lives of children less fortunate than them.” Click here to see more pictures.

Colonists from the original 13 colonies time traveled to St. Peter School where they taught the third graders about their lives.  The shared the history of their colony, their daily life and their family’s daily life, their colony’s flag, a craft from their colony, and a sample of food from their colony.  Unfortunately, these colonists have to return to the colonial time period at the end of the school day, and they won’t be able to stick around for tomorrow.  Third grade really enjoyed their visit, though!  Click here to see more pictures!
