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



All school fees including lunch, after school care, any remaining school tuition, or miscellaneous charges must be paid in full before school is out May 18th. You should be receiving emails regularly from FACTS. If you have a balance, you also can log into your account to see your balance at any time. Your immediate attention to this is appreciated.

As we close out another successful, blessed school year, here are a few reminders: If you are interested in enrolling your student at St. Peter Catholic School, you will do so on our school website HERE. Just simply fill out the application information and submit. Mrs. Sara Garner or Mrs. Gayle Trachsel will be in contact once it's received.

The school office will be closed as of May 19, 2023 until August 1, 2023. You may call the school (573-636-8922) and leave a message on ext. 327 or 244 if any questions. We will periodically check voicemail. Newsletters will continue throughout the summer months, but will be twice a month instead of weekly until August. We wish everyone a happy, fun-filled, safe summer vacation!! God Bless!

Attached is the tentative school calendar for the 2023-2024 school year. The detailed calendar on our website will be updated throughout the summer months.

23-24 Tentative School Calendar

The office will no longer be collecting Mosers receipts or Best Choice labels. We also will no longer be taking Coke UPC codes, for that program is ending in June. Boxtops for Education is electronic only now. Thank you to those who participate.

The first Big Bucks meeting went great! The next meeting will be Monday, June 5th @ 5:30. If you are interested in helping out in any way, please contact Abby Borberg ([email protected]) or Brad Shimmens ([email protected]). Mark your calendars:

St. Peter Home & School Committee News:

THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who helped at Summer Blast Off this year! We appreciate your support in making the event another success! And a BIG shout out to these St. Peter parents and local businesses who donated prize items to the event as well: Strikers, Yo Yums, McDonalds, Jennifer Enloe, TJ Ralston, Jefferson Bank, Coca Cola Bottling Co., Sno Biz, Missouri River Regional Library, Small Cakes, SK8 Zone LLC, Central Dairy, and JC Parks.

DID YOU KNOW…the St. Peter Home & School Committee provides the students, teachers, and faculty with their Spirit Shirts for the school year, AND also organizes various events throughout the school year for them? These events include, but are not limited to, the Back-to-School Swim event, Uniform Resale(s), Teacher/Staff First Day of School Lunch, Donuts with Dad, Morning with Mom, Teacher/Staff Christmas Party, Catholic Schools Week Teacher/Staff Lunch/Activities, Administrative Professionals Day, Teacher Appreciation Week Lunch/Activities, and Summer Blast Off. As you can probably guess, the Spirit Shirts and planning these events take, not only the Committee members volunteered time, but also quite a bit of money. Therefore, please know that due to inflation, we will be increasing the Home & School Annual Fee from $45 to $55 per family to help cover the costs. This $10 increase per family will begin with the 2023-2024 school year. 

We appreciate your continued support and are grateful for our amazing St. Peter families - Thank you!
