    Important Happenings

    February Events

    Dear St. Peter School Community,

    February is now underway- you can get a feel for important school events this week, most notably Spirit Week later in the month and also a visit by the Daughters of St. Paul. Additionally, if you are considering enrolling your child in St. Peter for the 2019-2020 school year, please consider having your child “shadow” at St. Peter on President’s Day, Feb. 18th. As St. Peter will be open when many other schools are closed, this could be a good opportunity for your child to “feel” the different and exceptional atmosphere in our school. Your child will be treated to a school lunch (if they choose) and be assigned to accompany students in their grade level for the day. It will give them an opportunity experience life as a St. Peter School student. If you are interested in signing your child up for this, please email Mrs. O’Callaghan, our admissions coordinator and Vice Principal at 856-665-5879.
