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

Monday, October 2nd through Friday, October 6th grades 3-8 will take the Iowa Assessment. There are a number of ways you can support your child before and after testing. It is important to remember the following points to ensure that your child is functioning at full capacity:

  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep.
  • Wake up at a good time so as not to be rushed. 
  • Eat a healthy breakfast.
  • Arrive on time to school.
  • Stay home if you feel sick (make-ups will take place the following week).
  • Encourage your student(s) to do their best, but don't stress.
  • Pray with your child(ren) in confidence, and remind him/her that testing is just one part of their total education
  • Please contact Mrs. Garner at 636-8922 ext 327 if you have questions.

Monday, October 2nd- Thursday, October 5th students are allowed to wear Spirit Wear with uniform bottoms. Friday, October 6th will be a dress down day for all in celebration of completing testing week! Please avoid scheduling appointments during testing week.

Flu consent forms are due Friday, September 22. Forms will not be accepted after this date. Any forms needing to be turned in after the due date will need to be taken directly to the Cole County Health Department. 

Flu clinic is Wednesday, October 25.

Farewell Fr. Berhorst

It is again, with heavy hearts, that we must say goodbye this time to our Associate Pastor, Fr. Brad Berhorst. Fr. Berhorst has been reassigned to St. Vincent de Paul in Sedalia. His last day will be October 15, 2023. We will post about Fr. Berhorst's farewell party in the near future.

The Central Missouri Honor Flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all of their sacrifices. The group transports our heroes from throughout Central Missouri to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials at no cost to them. The Central Missouri Honor Flight is funded by donations from individuals, organizations and businesses. 

St. Peter Catholic School will be raising funds to help send veterans on the next Honor Flight with the purchase of a special spirit wear shirt. A portion of each shirt sold will be donated to the Central Missouri Honor Flight on Veterans Day. This spirit wear shirt is not just for St. Peter Catholic School families; please feel free to share the link with friends and family. The order deadline is October 20th in hopes that shirts will be available to wear for Veterans Day, November 11th.

Meet Our Staff

Hello, My name is Amy Brauner.  I was born and raised in Jefferson City.  I attended St. Joseph Cathedral, Helias, and Lincoln University.  I have a degree in elementary education with an emphasis in early childhood education.  

My husband, Mike, and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on August 1st.  We have three children/adults: Logan (23), Carson (20), Maggie (16) and a Havanese named Cooper. All of my children are St. Peter Alumni.  

This is my 25th year at St. Peter teaching English and literature to jr. high students.  I am blessed to call my co teachers my best friends.

In my spare time, I like to cook, bake, read, shop, and spend time with my children. I love fall and watching Hallmark movies.  My favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”.
