Tomorrow is the field trip for grades K4-4th grade to Busy Barn. Please remember that students need to wear their red polos. It is going to be cold so it is also important that they are dressed for the weather as we will be outside for the entire day. Please pack a cold lunch for your child, including a drink. We are also asking that you send a sturdy bag along with your child so that they can carry their pumpkins home. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to chaperone this field trip! Please be aware that younger siblings are not able to attend field trips with you if you have signed up to chaperone. This should be a fun time for everyone!!
Students in Grades 5th through 8th are welcome to wear pajamas tomorrow! Considering its a short week and they aren't going on the field trip I thought it would be a nice treat for them!

In your red folders this week you will find a parent survey that we are asking all families to take the time to fill out and return to school.

Pancakes With Santa
We are excited to announce that on Sunday, December 15th from 7:00 a.m.- 12 p.m. St. Peters's will be hosting a winter wonderland pancake breakfast in the cafe. We understand that it's early to be thinking of Christmas already, but December calendars fill fast!. Our goal is to make this a community wide event that extends beyond the school, so the more people that are informed the better. But, we need your help spreading the word! All we ask is that you visit the Facebook event that has been created on St. Peter's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/374108270194569/ and share it to YOUR Facebook page. With your help of drumming up excitement and informing others, we are hoping to make this a huge success, as money raised from the pancake breakfast will go directly to funding technology at our school.
