Zoo Field Trip
All students are going to be taking a field trip to the Milwaukee County Zoo on May 12th from 9am-2:30pm. Permission slips went home today in red folders. We are seeking a few volunteers for this field trip, but please remember that you must have your Safe Environment Training prior to volunteering or attending field trips. Feel free to reach out to the school office if you need more information.
Students are going to be performing a play on Thursday, May 13th for a live audience! We are so excited to welcome our families into school to show off all of the students hard work. We hope you are able to join us! More information coming soon!
Parent Survey Reminder
The school office emailed all parents a survey on Monday March 22nd and we are asking that parents fill out the survey for each student that attends St. Peter's. Please complete the survey by Thursday April 1st. We appreciate everyone taking the time to provide us meaningful feedback so that we can continue to improve.
Seeking Room Parents
We need your help! After a brief hiatus, we are bringing back Room Parent Volunteers aka RPVs. RPVs provide an invaluable service to our school. They help coordinate class parties and events, as well as serve as a source of communication between the teacher, school and parents in your class. As a RPV, you will be invited to attend an orientation meeting where you will receive an overview of the Room Parent role. To learn more, contact Erin Seaverson: firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Peter's Yard Signs
We ordered yard signs to help advertise around our community how much we all love St. Peter's School. We have signs available for parents to pick up to place in their yards. We are also looking for a few families to volunteer to give out signs after masses on the weekend. This would only involve you standing outside after mass for 5-10 minutes to offer signs to parishioners that are interested. Please email or call the school office if this is something you are willing to help with!
Reminder that we have spring break from April 2nd-April 9th. Students will be returning to school on April 12th. I have been made aware that ETSD will not be having school on April 1st due to teacher vaccinations. However, we will still have a normal school day. The only change will be an alternate bus route for those students who take the bus. If you need bus services on this day, please contact the school office if you have not already done so.
All School Mass Update
Students now attend mass on Thursdays at 10:30am. Due to Covid we could no longer allow parents or guests at our school mass. However, the Arch has changed their guidelines and we are able to now invite parents back to mass with us! Parents and Grandparents who reside in the same household are welcome to come join us in celebrating mass. We ask that you arrive a little early, sit with your child(ren), and wear a mask. This will allow us to maintain our social distancing and health guidelines we have in place in church.
Parent Advisory Committee
This is our primary school committee that meets once a month and discusses various topics that relate to the functioning of the school much as enrollment, fundraisers, marketing, policies, etc. The meeting occurs on the last Wednesday of each month at 7pm. If you are interested in being a part of this committee I encourage you to call or email the school office.
Student Drop Off
Beginning after Spring Break, we are once again welcoming families back into the school building for morning drop off. I recognize that this is an important opportunity for parents to interact with other parents as well as teachers and that its a part of what makes us so special! We are requiring parents who enter the school to wear a mask and be temperature checked at the door so that we are able to maintain a safe environment for all students and staff. Although we encourage parents to take advantage of this wonderful time, we politely ask that all parents begin exiting the school once announcements begin at 7:50am. Please note that although this is an option, it is not necessary. You may continue to drop off students at the door the way you have been doing.
