"Inspiring students to love God, their Catholic faith and learning"

This year, St Peter is joining other local Catholic Schools to build a school in Uganda. A school costs around $25,000 to build. Our goal is to raise around 5,000 dollars to help with this initiative. Join us in profoundly impacting the lives of children in Uganda by supporting our initiative to build a school in this deserving partner diocese community. Collaborating with local Catholic schools and the Diocesan Mission Office, we are committed to providing access to quality education for these bright young minds. Your generous contribution will construct a school and pave the way for a brighter future, empowering children with the knowledge and opportunities they deserve. Together, let's create a place where dreams take root and flourish. Join our cause and participate in this transformative journey towards education and empowerment in Uganda. Every donation brings us a step closer to making a lasting difference in the lives of these children. Let's build hope, one brick at a time. 

Funds collected for Dress Down Days on February 1st and March 15th will all go towards our goal. We are also having a "penny war" through Friday, February 9 to raise money for building a school in Uganda. Students can bring in change or dollars and put their money in whichever tub represents the team they think or want to win the Super Bowl.

If you participated in the "penny wars" with a dollar or more, you may dress in red, or Chiefs/49ers spirit wear with dress down bottoms on Friday, Feb. 9th to support your favorite Superbowl team! We will still be collecting money Friday so there is still time to make your donation.

The date of the winter concert for students in grades 2, 3 & 4 has been changed to Thurs., Mar. 7. With so many days off and shortened schedules,

 it became apparent that we would not have enough time to adequately prepare the students and their special parts for the winter concert.
