Grade 3 enjoyed the fruits of their labors Monday with a taco party. With the help of Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Flaherty, they harvested the lettuce from the Tower Garden and made tacos for everyone! We can't wait for the tomatoes and cucumbers to grow and ripen!
The first graders came in first place in the Penny Wars for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They will be treated to a pizza party.

SPS Challenge Grant
I am always amazed at people’s generosity. In response to a recent mailing to our out-of-town alumni in which we updated them on the current happenings at St. Peter School, I received a phone call from a former student, Dave Logsdon, who wanted to speak further about how best to help our school. In our conversation, he decided to set up a “challenge grant” in memory of his mother, Carol C. Logsdon and in honor of his father, Maury Logsdon. The Logsdon Family Foundation will match up to $10,000 in support for our school, such as: school library, audio-visual equipment, technology, teaching and learning resources, and the gift that keeps on giving, the School Endowment Fund. If you would like to take part in this challenge, please mark your donation: SPS Challenge Grant.
We thank Maury Logsdon and his family for supporting our efforts here at St. Peter School. Each gift is a blessing to our students, families and staff.
The SPS Challenge Grant has brought in $1,950.00 so far. Up to $10,000 will be matched by the Logsdon Family Foundation! If you would like to take part in this cause, place your donation in an envelope marked “SPS Challenge Grant” and send it to school. Thank you for your support!
