Greetings SPA Community,
By now most families have had the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to discuss progress and grades. We hope your discussions were informative. At St Peter Academy we value family participation – please know that we appreciate your input and not just at scheduled student progress meetings, but for all your efforts in everything you do throughout the year to support your child’s academic, social and emotional growth. 
This Friday we have the pleasure of introducing Carol Moakley to you. Carol is joining Doreen Brown in the front office. Carol and her husband Bob are founding parents of St Peter Academy. They were instrumental in our early efforts to launch the school and the accompanying success that followed. Carol worked closely with Doreen Brown on the day to day operations of the school and Bob served a vital role as a board member. We are absolutely thrilled that Carol is joining us – Welcome Home Carol!
Another dedicated parent alum that you may have heard from and that we would like to recognize is Flo Holmes. Nurse Holmes has been diligent in her efforts to verify that our student health files are in order. She has also consulted with faculty on medical emergency protocols as well as proactive health measures. We are fortunate to have her expertise and caring nature at our school. Thank You Flo!

The Student Council Food Drive continues until November 25. Please drop off nonperishable food items in the designated boxes located through out the school. All donations are for the benefit of the St Vincent Parish Food Pantry.
There’s still time to order some delicious treats and scented candles from the Classic Cookie brochure available for download further on in this newsletter. All proceeds support student activities and enrichment programs at St Peter Academy.
We’re having a GREAT and EXCITING year at St Peter Academy where our students ARE at the center of everything we do!
