A strong partnership between families and the school is an essential component of a quality education. In order to foster relationships among parents, students, teachers, and staff members, the St. Peter School Home School Association (HSA) organizes regular events to bring together members of our community.

The HSA co-chairs for 2017-2018 are Liz Martin and Christine Derwin. Liz and her husband, Chris Coakley, are the parents of Gus in Pre-K and Beck in Grade 2. Christine and her husband, Mike Fleszar, are the parents of Teddy in Pre-K, Casey in Grade 1, and baby Tate (class of 2031).

Some examples of HSA-sponsored events include:

  • Back-to-School Picnic
  • Moms’ Night Out Happy Hour
  • Grandparents’ Day
  • Cookies with Santa
  • 150th Anniversary Celebration and Auction
  • Field Day BBQ
  • Trivia Night
  • Movie Night

We feel blessed to be part of such an active, engaged school community, and we welcome your involvement at these and other events. Parents at St. Peter School are expected to support their child(ren)’s education through the use of their talent, treasure - and time. The minimum required commitment is 15 hours per year for two-parent families, and 7.5 hours per year for single-parent families. Julia Bucheger is the school’s volunteer coordinator, and she tracks all volunteer hours on behalf of the HSA. She can be reached at
