St Peter Academy is getting an early Christmas present! Today our friends at the Painters and Allied Trades District Council 35 surprised us with an expert crew of plasterers and painters, staging and all the supplies to renovate our three story foyer and stairway! It’s a mammoth job so they’ll be toiling away through the Christmas school break. We are so fortunate to have them as friends and supporters!

Second Term Progress Reports were sent home today. As always, our teachers are available to meet and discuss your child’s school performance.

Grades 3 & 4 were rewarded for their mid-term progress with ice skating at Murphy Rink – See all the fun in the photo section of this newsletter!

There’s only a few more days to get your Box Tops for Education in the first school contest. The group who collects the most box tops wins an ice cream party – check out the current group standings below.

‘Tis The Season – Each year we request a voluntary contribution for St Peter Academy Faculty and Staff Gifts. Please consider a family donation of $20.00. Donations may be deposited with Mrs. Brown.

The Student Council Toy Drive will continue through December 19. All toy donations will be delivered to Saint Vincent De Paul Parish for distribution to families in need this Christmas season.

Plans are underway for some St Peter Academy Community Christmas Caroling at Marian Manor and a Christmas Show performance given by the St Peter Academy Early Childhood Classes – Join Us On December 23 For Some Merry Fun!

Looking for some stocking stuffers? Our Pot of Gold Calendars make great stocking stuffers! Drawings are held every day in March, and you have 31 chances to win, totaling $1,700. $10 for each calendar. The child who sells the most calendars wins an ice cream party for his/her class! Calendars are available in the office. Thank you for the support in 2014 and here’s to continued success in 2015!
