It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is upon us and we have endured our first taste of winter! As the St. Peter School Family prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving, we reflect on the many gifts and blessings we have been given this year. I would like to sincerely thank you for your support, kindness and assistance these past few months. St. Peter School is a very special community comprised of dedicated people who work hard to help students meet with academic success while simultaneously building faith-filled young people who will be ready to lead others to our Lord. I am particularly thankful our Lord led me to St. Peter's to join a remarkable and blessed family. I have enjoyed a new season in my life as a result of this gift. Visiting classrooms, meeting with students and families, sharing Mass with the whole - school community and witnessing the growth our students are making every day are just some of the things that make each day special.
I want to thank everyone who attended our recent meeting at St. Peter Church where we discussed a number of important safety issues as well as an update on what is unfolding at St. Peter School.
As you know, our annual school theme this year is doing small things with great love, During the month of October we celebrated Respect for Life. This month we are celebrating Faith in God. We transformed our Respect for Life Tree into a Prayer Tree. Students are helping to bring this tree to life through pictures, prayers, and faithful actions.
Thank you for supporting our recent Clothing Drive. Next month I will be able to let you know the proceeds from that event! Stay tuned for information about the next fundraising opportunity in the new year.
With winter arriving sooner than expected, please remember to ensure that your child comes to school in appropriate clothing for the colder weather. All children should have a winter coat for outdoor play. Please take a minute to label your child's clothing if you have not done so already. It helps when the growing lost and found area multiplies, and parents arrive looking for a child's lost belonging.
As I close this letter to you, I ask you to take a moment today to thank someone for being a part of your life. It is the best thing you can give them. This Thanksgiving I pray you and your loved ones are blessed with the gifts of love, hope, and faith.
