2023-2024 School Calendar

HERE is the 2023-2024 School Supply List for PreK through 8th grade.

During summer cleaning of the school the trophy case in the main hallway nearest the front entrance was removed for safety reasons. If anyone is interested in acquiring this trophy case or has the builders information, please contact Mark Veit at [email protected] or 636-8922 Ext. 242.

Likewise the trophies that filled this case are available for the taking. Most are from the 90's and early 2000's. They will be displayed near the Monsignor Lammers Gym during the Open House on Monday, August 14th. Anyone interested can take them then or can contact Mr. Veit prior to then.

St. Peter's 8th Grade class would like you to participate in the following fundraiser:

School Uniforms

School uniform tops can be ordered at anytime through our website HERE. In order to insure uniforms before the start of school in August, you must have placed orders by the July 12, 2023 deadline. Watch the next newsletter for a pickup date/time for orders placed before the July 12 deadline.

St. Peter Athletics

Please remember, Mrs. Bell is the current St. Peter Athletic Director position. All communication regarding athletics will come from, and can be directed to her at [email protected], or 573-636-8933 Ext. 233. Please be patient as she is still learning this role and all of the duties it entails.

Attached are the links to register for athletic activities (except Little Olympics) and to be a coach or assistant coach for the 2023-2024 academic school year. You can register for all activities at once or wait until each season gets closer. Please try not to duplicate registrations as it becomes tedious looking through all students that are registered for activities. The links will also be found on the St. Peter school website under the Athletics tab, then click on Athletic forms.

Information regarding the season, placement, etc. for individual sports can be found on the sports pages on the St. Peter website under the Athletics tab.

To register for athletics, click HERE

The only paperwork required to be sent to Mrs. Bell is a copy of a current physical exam form. The MSHSAA physical exam form can be found on the St. Peter website under the Athletics tab, and is available on the MSHSAA website as well.  

As always, we are looking to add new members to the St. Peter Athletic Committee. The Committee is a sub-committee of the School Advisory Board and meets monthly. The AC is responsible for supervision as well of athletic events hosted by St. Peter. If you have questions or would like to know more about the responsibilities of a AC member, please contact Mr. Veit @ [email protected]. If you are interested in being a member please contact Mr. Veit or Mrs. Bell ([email protected]).

This Sunday (July 16) we will meet at Memorial Park on West Main Street. We will meet at the big covered pavilion in the center of the park. If you did not run with us last summer, Memorial is very well-shaded and proved to be a fine spot for our sessions. 730pm-830pm, as usual. 

Looking ahead just a bit, Melissa and I have decided our fall/school year CC practices will be on Mondays and Wednesdays, with the first regular practice to be on Monday August 21. Melissa and I are still finalizing the regular practice times.  Please contact Scott Skinner for more information at S[email protected].

Church News

St. Peter will hold our parish celebration for parishioners and the community on Friday, August 11 from 5:00 – 9:00 PM on our campus and Broadway. Live music, food trucks, country store, giveaways, kids zone and a beer garden will all be included in the fun!


We need help from our parish family to make this a great time for all. Please visit our volunteer sign up link, https://signup.com/go/cqjaAbZ to volunteer some of your time that evening. Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt; please add your shirt size in the comments field.


Please keep in mind that all adult volunteers (graduated high school) who work with children need to be VIRTUS certified (trained and background checked). If you are an event volunteer, you only need to sign up with the VIRTUS office to have a background check run. No one will see the results of this check; it is only for safe environment purposes. The link to get this done is: https://diojeffcity.org/safe-environment-archive/single-occasion-volunteer-form/ Please be sure this is done before the event.


Items needed for the Country Store! We are asking for donations of cakes, pies, treats, or whatever you would like to donate that can be sold that evening! Please bring offerings from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM to Selinger Centre gym on August 11. Thank you for your contributions to our event! Bring the family for a night of fun, food and friendship!
