Our first few weeks back into school have been a success! Everyone seems happy to be back at school learning with their peers! I have also been extremely impressed with how well the students have been doing with their masks! We really appreciate everyone's positivity and understanding with all of these new policies and procedures. We truly are in this together!
We are going to be having our first PTO meeting on Wednesday September 23rd at 3pm. Free childcare will be provided if needed during the meeting. You may also join us virtually if that works better with your schedule. PTO helps plan and facilitate our fundraisers throughout the school year. If you are interested in being part of this committee please reach out to me or the school office.
Parent Advisory Council Meeting
Our first PAC Meeting will be Monday September 28th at 6:30pm. This is an important committee that helps guide decision making on policies and procedures throughout the school year. If you are interested in being part of this committee please reach out to me or the school office.
Throughout this week I met with the staff as well as the Emergency Response Committee to discuss how things have gone thus far this year and to make any necessary changes. We have decided that we are going to be returning to one lunch period instead of two. There is plenty of room in the lunchroom to remain social distanced while still having only one lunch period. With our decrease in enrollment, I felt that it was unnecessary stress on the staff. Please also be aware that myself and Mrs. Borkhuis are in the lunchroom daily from 11:30-12pm assisting with service and doing temperature checks so the office will be closed at that time.
I met with Father Mark this morning and we figured out a seating chart for Mass that would allow us to return to the church for our weekly masses. Students will be sufficiently social distanced as well as wearing masks while in mass. Sadly, we are still requesting that our school Mass be limited to students and staff only. Thank you for understanding!
Today Grades 5-8th are going to begin MAPS testing. Grades K5-4th will test next week. Students in Grades K5-2nd grade will need over-the-ear headphones for testing, so please send them in a labeled Zip Lock bag before testing begins. Testing will take place in the morning so be sure that students arrive on time. Once results are available they will be sent home with families.
Students are required to wear red St. Peter's polo shirts Thursdays for mass. Below is the link to order these shirts should you need more or a different size for this year. Orders must be placed online. Call the school office if you have any questions or issues with ordering. All orders are due by September 14th.
