Calling all parents…
We are once again at that point in our accreditation cycle called “self- study.” A self-study is a self-evaluation of the school by the school community itself. It is important that the entire school community participate in the process. Throughout the process, we collect and analyze data in order to produce a picture of the school which will lead us toward new Catholic Identity and student achievement goals.
Parents, that’s where you come in…
Tomorrow we will be sending parents an online survey about your perceptions of St. Peter School. Please take the time to answer the questions and submit your response by Friday, October 7. Teachers and students will also take a similar survey.
So… Check your e-mail and take the survey.
Help us self-evaluate!

Reminders and other news:
This Friday is the last day students can wear shorts to school until May. Hopefully the weather will cool down. We sure are lucky to have an air-conditioned building!
The Scholastic Book Fair will be the week of October 10-14 for grades K-6. Wonderful new books will be on display at school, and students who bring money may purchase books. We will be open one evening so parents and grandparents can visit and purchase books, too. More information will be coming soon.

The St. Peter’s Discount Cards will be arriving soon so sales can begin for our first fundraiser of the year.
The second of our 3 fundraisers, the Spaghetti Dinner, is just around the corner on November 6. We will be asking families to volunteer their time and to donate a raffle prize for this event. This year we decided to try a theme-based raffle: Home and Family Fun. Movie night baskets, snack baskets, games, and crafty items for the home are just some of the ideas for raffle prizes. Your creativity is the limit!
Our third fundraiser of the year will be a new one:
St. Peter’s 1st Annual Benefit Auction. It will be an adult-night-out event on March 18 with food, beverages, live and silent auctions, and a whole lot of fun!
Thank you for supporting St. Peter School with your time, talents, and treasure!
There were 240 tickets entered into the first For the Love of Pete monthly raffle. $17,200 has been raised for the school. Tickets may still be purchased for the 8 remaining monthly drawings and the Grand Prize Drawing. Participants have 9 chances to win $1000, $500, $250 and a chance to win $10,000, $3,000, or $2,000 at the festival!!

Grades 1-4 will be traveling to the Columbus Zoo on Monday, October 3 in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, whose holy day is October 4. The buses will be leaving at 8:00 and returning before the end of the day. Keep the children (and adults) in your prayers as they enjoy all God’s creatures great and small.
In compliance with the Diocesan “Protecting Our Youth,” all volunteers are required to complete an online “Protecting God’s Children” training through VIRTUS. If you are on our volunteer list, you are receiving detailed information today. Please read it carefully, and if you have any questions, you may call the business office (419-294-1268).
Scrip order forms are due October 3.
