Dear Parents/Guardians of St. Peter School students:
I hope this letter finds you all healthy and safe as we continue to live through and adjust to this ongoing pandemic. I would like to begin by offering my most sincere gratitude and thanks to all of you for the sacrifices you have made during this time. Words cannot express our appreciation for the support you have shown and the work you have done to ensure that your child(ren) continue to remain engaged and grow both academically and spiritually. Our goal during this unprecedented situation was to provide the needed support and resources to further enrich and challenge our students and we hope that our efforts have been fruitful in that respect. Additionally, we wanted to be as flexible and understanding of the unique circumstances that each family faced during this tough period.
As we look forward to the end of the school year, we want to also look to the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. As you are most likely aware, our yearly tuition is scheduled to increase by 10% next year, This is a slightly higher increase compared to previous years. However, as a sign of our appreciation and our understanding of the hardships you have just experienced, we are offering the opportunity to waive this planned tuition increase. We are asking families to commit to their enrollment at St. Peter School for the 2020-2021 school year now to lock into the 2019-2020 tuition rate. In addition, we are still prepared to offer each student tuition assistance from our Tuition Angel Fund this coming school year.
Again, we greatly appreciate your continued support and we want to offer this token of our appreciation. If you are interested in this opportunity, we are asking you to indicate this at the bottom of this letter. Please sign and return this portion to the school office prior to the beginning of the school year to ensure your tuition rate for next year. May God continue to shine His blessings on our community, our parish, and our St. Peter School families. Stay safe and stay healthy.
Mr. Blake England Principal St. Peter Catholic School
