Back in November, the first graders wrote letters to the third graders to congratulate them on their wonderful portrayal of the Saints on All Saints Day.
The third graders decided to write back and thank the first graders for their letters… and a new relationship ensued.
Now the two classes exchange letters regularly. Each student has been assigned another student to write to when it’s their turn. Mrs. Flaherty and Mrs. Huber both enjoy coming up with new topics for their students to write about.
“This makes writing authentic for the students. They are not just writing a random story, they are sharing their story with someone else. And that makes it real to them,” stated Mrs. Flaherty.
“This activity gives the students practice using their letter writing skills, grammar, punctuation, and it is creating friendships with others they may not have gotten to know,” added Mrs. Huber.

Santa and his elves visited the school on Dec. 4th. The children, young and old, enjoyed lunch, writing letters, making ornaments, and sharing their Christmas wishes with Santa. We thank the St. Peter’s Parent Team for organizing this event, and all of Santa’s elves for helping the little ones.
The students’ spare change from their classroom donation boxes has been used to purchase gifts for 5 children in the community through the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. The students always enjoy seeing how they have helped someone else.
