Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to an exciting new school year!  It seems just like yesterday when we were wishing all our students a wonderful and safe summer.  Where did the weeks go?

We extend a warm welcome to any new families to our St. Peter School community.  This is a wonderful school to be part of! To the returning students and families, hello and welcome back!


School starts at 8:55 am on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.  If there is NO RAIN, we will ask that all students gather at the back of the school on the pavement.  Please wait in the following areas:


KINDERGARTEN (SK) STUDENTS - gather in the Kindergarten yard

PRIMARY STUDENTS (Grades 1 to 3) - wait on pavement near Primary Exit doors

JUNIOR and INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS (Grades 4-8) - wait on pavement near J/I Exit doors


If RAIN DAY – all students Kindergarten to grade 8 will meet in the gym.


When the bell rings we ask that students wait quietly and await teachers to call out names.  Once your child’s name is called, he/she will stand in front of their teacher.  We will continue this process until ALL students have been called.


Students who do not have their names on the lists will be directed to the office where they will be assisted and then directed to their appropriate classroom.


Parents/Guardians – we ask that you stand back as names are being called.  When your child’s class is ready to come in they will wave to you.  No parent/guardian are to walk their child to their classroom unless otherwise directed by the office. 


ALL students will be at school the FULL day on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.


End of Day

  • Students who walk or get picked up will be dismissed at their entrance doors – no one exits through the front door
  • Bus Students will board their busses at the end of the day – teachers will be on hand to assist students in grades SK to grade 8 to ensure they get home on the proper busses.


Please enjoy this long weekend with your families.


Mrs. Parker
