Have you ever dreamt of being a Super Hero? Pondered being able to accomplish something so vital and meaningful as to benefit mankind?
One of Superman's attributes was his ability to change the course of mighty rivers. How would you like to change the course of a young person's life?
Since 1853, Saints Peter and Paul School has been doing just that.
Our teachers (religious and lay), priests, and principals have worked tirelessly each year to graduate difference makers. Graduates who go onto higher education, and then into their workplace, society, and community, are armed with Gospel values and ready to respect the dignity of all of God's creations.
We are graduating difference makers!!
Unfortunately, our school has its own form of kryptonite and it is also green.....money.
Although tuition is $5,070, it doesn't come close to covering the cost of educating one child, which is $8,011. Parish subsidy helps. The earnings from our endowments play a huge part. But fundraising is still necessary.
The education offered children twenty years ago is outdated. So, too, is what we offered when we were recognized as a Blue Ribbon School in 2012. To meet the changing needs of our student body, we must continue to evolve with our curriculum and course offerings.
This year we are looking to expand technology with Apple TV's and Google Chromecast, replace Smart boards in several classrooms; enhance security, and begin creating a Makerspace material resource library containing materials that will allow students to work together using critical thinking skills. We are also creating a Strategic Plan which will set the course for our school for the next three years.
Whether you are a current school parent, former parent, grandparent, or alum, you know first-hand of how the education we offer has opened doors for you (or your children), helped instill a value system, and brought everyone closer to God.
Won't you do the same for someone else?
After all, writing a check is a lot easier than bending steel with your bare hands.
