Due to the impending storm and the cancellation of Boston Public Schools, St Peter Academy will be closed Monday, February 2.

The School Board and Principal Dilba would like to clarify our weather related school cancellation policy. If Boston Public Schools (BPS) closes for a storm, we are closed. Please look for the BPS initial school closure announcement. We will also send a school closure email to families and provide the information to local TV stations for posting.

On the days that follow the storm, we will open as soon as the school is ready to accept students (regardless of what BPS does). We will email families, teachers and staff by 5PM on the day prior to inform everyone of our decision.

Weather permitting – Our rescheduled Open House will take place on Tuesday February 3 from 9-11am and 5-7pm. We hope you’ll join us! Our teachers have prepared informative classroom brochures and websites; volunteers have been busy preparing the school and our marketing efforts are producing interest from new families. Take advantage of the opportunity to explore your child’s upcoming school year classroom and discuss next year’s curriculum and fun learning activities with the classroom teacher(s). Please spread the good word, invite families interested in learning about educational opportunities for their children and read more about the open house further on in this newsletter.

Second Term Report Cards went home on Friday. Your child’s teacher will be inviting you to meet and discuss your child’s mid year academic progress and student achievement goals.

Student Step Up Day is planned for the day after our Open House. St Peter Academy Step Up Day is a fun way for students to visit their next grade level classroom, meet the classroom teacher(s) and explore all the new learning opportunities ahead! Students will participate in a mini interactive and fun learning game , followed by a Q&A session and complimentary hot cider and cookie break!
