Kindergarten learned about bees. They talked about the importance of bees to our world, and the harm caused by the decreasing bee population. So, they made bee houses! Each house will be hung in a tree or bush for bees to move in. “It’s one small way we can help our world,” said Miss Stahler. “I can’t wait for the honey!” exclaimed one kindergartener.
The 5th graders are participating in Trick or Treat for UNICEF. By collecting donations, they will be helping kids in need around the world. Just $30 will provide vaccines to protect 100 kids from measles. Mrs. Garvin received special donation boxes to distribute to the students, who will take donations for this worthy cause. “I might take my box with me when I go trick-or-treating,” suggested one 5th grader.
Reminders and other news:
The All-Saints Day Liturgy with our grade 3 “saints” will be at 8:45 on Tuesday, November 1.

Extended Day will be open and run as usual until 5:30 on October 20 and 25. If your Parent -Teacher Conference runs later than that time, please make other arrangements for your child. Our Extended Day supervisor must leave at 5:30.
The Discount Card family contest ends Tuesday. The 3 top-selling families will receive pizza gift certificates. Please return unsold cards and money so we can tally the sales. If you are unable to sell your cards, please return them to school, as we have many people waiting for cards.
The St. Peter School Spaghetti Dinner is just 2 weeks away! Students are selling tickets for raffle prizes and delicious dinners. The standings in the classroom competition so far are: K- 139%, gr. 2- 64%, gr. 1- 38%, gr. 6- 29%, gr. 5- 21%, and gr. 4- 15%. In the past those numbers end up around 700%, so we all have a long way to go! We still need at least 4 volunteers to fill necessary positons to keep things running efficiently. Please contact the school if you are able to offer your time.
We welcome Mr. Matt Arnold and Mr. Rodney Traxler (2nd term) to the School Advisory Council.
Student Council presented each class with a “Coins for a Cause” box. Students will collect spare change to support a different cause each quarter. First quarter money will be used to send cards and letters to the military and shut-ins all year.
Did you know…
The St. Peter Student Council will be selling BOO grams on Thursday and Friday a.m. this week for $1.00 each. Students may buy and send BOO grams to friends, teachers, or themselves. Parents can send a BOO gram to their child (just send the money in an envelope marked with the child’s name, grade, and who it is from). Later in the day, students who receive BOO grams will get a chance to visit the “BOO Store” to choose a prize. It’s a fun event, and all proceeds help Student Council purchase extra items for the school.
This year, due to the instant availability of your child’s grades online and daily reminders from Ascend, we will not require you to sign and return your child’s grade card. We trust that you and your child are discussing their progress on a regular basis.
