7th Grade Science

One of our parents, Mrs. Cernich, presented to the 7th grade class the latest advancements in bionics and prosthetics. Students were able to control Mrs. Cernich’s arm remotely with theirs and to observe the electrical signals given off by their muscles using EMGs.

Career Day

St. Peter School Career Day 2018 was a huge success. All morning, students in grades 1-8 learned about the worlds of graphic design, comic book design, aviation, dentistry and the FBI. We are immensely grateful to our parent volunteers who shared their time and talents with our students.
