We have open house scheduled for February 7th from 10:30am-12pm for new and prospective families. Teachers will be available to answer questions and give a school tour. Current families who refer new families as well as all new families will receive a St. Peter's Swag bag!
School Choice Registration
Wisconsin School Choice Registration begins February 1st and runs through April 15th. Current families please be sure to register for next year asap. If you need any help with this or have any questions feel free to call the school office. Also, this is a great time to spread the word to neighbors and friends about how amazing St. Peter's School is! School Choice is available for students in grades K4-8th grade for those families that qualify. If you would like more information or know someone who does, please have them call us.
We have heard that there are other schools and districts that are preparing for a snow day tomorrow. I wanted to take the time to explain what the snow day procedures will be should we find ourselves in that position. As with prior years, we will follow what East Troy Public decides to do. This means if East Troy Public School has a snow day, we will as well. This includes a 2-hour delay. We have many families who use the bus and therefore we will follow their schedule as it relates to a potential snow day. I will email families as soon as I become aware of school being canceled and I will also post it to numerous news outlets. Feel free to email me if you are unsure.
The question of virtual learning came up and whether we would have the students participate in virtual learning during their snow day. We have decided that this is not the route that we are going to take. Many students do not have the necessary technology at home to make this a viable option and it also puts undue stress on the teachers to have to prepare virtual lessons with no advanced notice. However, we do not have extra days built into our schedule this year. So, we would be in a position where we would need to make up whatever time is taken off due to a snow day. We have the option of adding a day at the end of the year, adding a virtual day during a scheduled vacation day or adding a few minutes to each school day. Should we find ourselves in this position, we will notify you ASAP as to what the calendar change will be. Thank you!

Scholastic Book Order
Book flyers were sent home with students in red folders today. These orders are due by January 28th. Due to the current pandemic we have decided not to do a book fair this year. However, we encourage you to still purchase books for your children through the monthly book orders. This is a great way to get kids excited about reading! To place an order through St. Peter's School please use our code WXN6H.
Virtual Christmas Concert
Below are the links to our Christmas Concert that the students performed yesterday. We are very sad that we were not able to have guests at this years performance, but we hope that you are able to enjoy the show from the comfort of your own home! All of the students did a wonderful job! Also, a big thank you to Mrs. Bezak for all of her hard work preparing the students for the concert.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
This week has been so wonderful having all of the students back in school learning where they are meant to be! The students seem excited to and eager to get back into the routine! Here are a few school updates to be aware of in the next few weeks:
This week grades 5th-8th will be MAPS testing. Next week Grades 1st-4th will be testing. Once all grades 1-8 have completed their testing, then we will test Kindergarten. These tests will take place in the morning, so please be sure that students are rested and at school on time.
Popcorn & Juice:
We are going to be taking a break on the popcorn and juice sales. The students seemed excited about it the first few weeks, but quickly lost interest. We may bring it back the last few weeks of school if there is an interest by the students.
If your child's records are out of date or we are missing documentation, we have placed the necessary forms in your child's red folder that went home today. Please be sure to get those completed and turned into the school as soon as possible.
