We lit our second Advent candle together as we listened to the story of Mary and the message she received from the angel Gabriel. This week the K-6 students will send their secret Advent friend a candy cane greeting.
We collected $139.50 in donations for our two Angel Tree children and have delivered their packages. We also collected 84 pairs of pajamas for the Great Bedtime Pajama Drive.
BRUNCH WITH SANTA
Brunch with Santa was a real hit. Thank you, SPS Parent team for planning and organizing this fun time and great food. All the volunteers and elves really helped make the afternoon special. We thank Mrs. Bramel for playing live piano music. Best of all, we had a Christmas miracle: Santa’s visit really put us in the holiday spirit.
The students are in the early stages of creating robots that follow directions. Watch these videos of 2 student created robots who have been programmed to "dance" to the music.
Putt Putt Pizza is continuing their
“Buy 100-Get $1000”
promotion for St. Peter School. Just purchase a pizza at regular price (no coupons, no discounts) and mention St. Peter School. They keep track of the numbers, and when 100 pizzas are purchased, St. Peter School receives $1000. What a great deal!
The 1st graders recently completed an economics project. They worked with their group to design and create Christmas items to sell at their "store." They had been earning "coins" in class for good work and behavior which they used to buy items from each other's store. What an authentic learning activity!
The kindergarten class took 84 pair of pajamas to Open Door Resource Center. While there they got a surprise: Santa Claus

"Little Hats, Big Hearts"
The 5th graders are helping a former student with her Confirmation service project by joining with the American Heart Association and Nationwide Children's Hospital to knit red hats for babies born in February, raising awareness about congenital heart defects. The 5th graders are very excited to help with the "Little Hats, Big Hearts" project.
