Parent Newsletter #35 5/31/2021
We hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend. We have reached the final few days of school and that means finishing up schoolwork and completing end of the year checklists. One of those checklist items is ensuring that all invoices and outstanding bills are paid in full so please call the school office if you need clarification about any invoices. We also ask that
you return any school items including Chromebooks and chargers to school this week. Finally, we wanted to remind everyone that there will be no extended day services on Thursday due to our early dismissal and a staff in-service. If you have any questions about any end of the year policies or procedures, please do not hesitate to ask. Since this will be the final newsletter of the school year, I wanted to sincerely thank you all for your continued support and cooperation during this most unique school year. Our goal this year was to create a safe and sanitary learning environment that would allow our students to have as much in-person learning as possible. I know that wasn’t always easy and at times there was some tension, but I am proud of the way we were able to overcome those challenges and persevere for our students. My hope and prayer is that next year will be a complete return to normal but if we are still faced with challenges, I am confident that we can overcome them as well together. Thanks again for a great school year and I look forward to seeing you all in August. God bless and stay safe.

Our kindergarten, first, fifth, and sixth grade classes went on a leadership field trip to Harrison Smith Park. They enjoyed icees, a scavenger hunt, and fun! Thanks to everyone who organized and volunteered to make the day memorable for our students!
Ag day at the high school
Former St Petes students Ella, Mack, and Savannah presenting their lesson. The second graders had a great time !!
THANK YOU! This awesome day requires a lot of support from our community. We were kept safe on our route by the Upper Sandusky Police Department and the Wyandot County Sheriff's Office. Steve Howard from Wilson Tire checked the air pressure on all of the bikes. We had parents and other experienced bike riders like Bud Miller helping our students along the ride. The Hoffbauer family was gracious enough to welcome us to their home. Jill Eyestone, our physical education teacher, was the mastermind for this whole operation. Thanks to everyone for another successful (hot) bike ride!!!
Our bikes are blessed, and we're ready to depart for the BIKE RIDE!
It was a beautiful day to tour Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral. The 5th and 6th grade classes learned and saw so many things. Thanks to everyone who made this special day possible!

Thanks to Ms. Jill from the Upper Sandusky Community Library for visiting our 4th, 5th, and 6th graders today! Even these older kids still enjoy a great storyteller like her.
PreK enjoys a surprise popcorn party.
Could one of these 5th grade gentlemen be a future bishop? They enjoyed this project while learning about vocations and Holy Orders. Don't they look good in their hand-made miters?!
Enjoy the 4th Grade play: The Day the Crayons Quit.
Our creative 6th grade wrote this play! Enjoy this play starring the 6th and 5th grade classes: A Happy Little Mystery.
Our 6th graders finished off their field trip by spending the afternoon at Mrs. Wendell's farm. Since COVID cancelled their annual Camp Y-Noah field trip, Mrs. Wendell was kind enough to let them experience the trip in some capacity. We are so happy they got the experience.
Our 6th graders made a trip to the Wyandot County Recycling Center this week and learned a lot of really interesting and educational things. A very big thank you to Mrs. Anderson and the Wyandot County Recycling Center for the fun morning.
Our 4th graders all planted seeds as part of the Wyandot County Community Garden. Everyone's plants sprouted, so they're showing us their "green thumbs!"
