I hope this letter finds you healthy and happy. I want to share my sincere appreciation for all of you for embracing the challenges presented by Covid-19. Without your support and patience, what we accomplished would not have been possible. I also want to thank our faculty and staff who worked so hard to convert their lessons from a physical classroom to a virtual one. I can say without hesitation that students at Saint Peter Catholic School had the most comprehensive remote learning experience of any school in the area.
With that in mind, I humbly ask you to share your positive SPSC remote learning experiences with other families in the area. We continue to work diligently to build our enrollment to strengthen our school and its future. Your support is a key part in that effort. Word of mouth and personal recommendations from friends are the most effective way to recruit a new family to our school. It is important for people to know that if the state chooses to close schools again and switch to remote learning, our school is ready with a proven track record of success. SPCS teachers are dedicated to our students learning in the classroom and remotely.
If you use social media, I have included an image that I hope you consider sharing, along with some of your own words about your remote learning experience. How wonderful it would be to see a flood of support for our school and teachers as this year comes to an end!
We are also excited to announce the dates for graduation ceremonies for our 8th graders and PreK 4 students. Parents of these students will soon receive more details on these ceremonies. The scheduled rain date will be Wednesday, June 10 at the same times.
- 8th Grade Graduation will be Tuesday, June 9 at 7 pm at John Paul II Catholic High School’s football field.
- PreK 4 Graduation will be Tuesday, June 9 at 9 am at John Paul II Catholic High School’s football field.
I know you are wondering what the Fall will bring. The conclusion of the school year brings the opportunity for us to focus our efforts on preparing for the upcoming school year. We intend to start with our first day of school for all students on Wednesday, August 19 (students in PreK, Kindergarten, 6th grade and transfer students will have their first days on either August 17 or 18). We are examining the new guidelines for health and safety from the government and making plans to implement them.
Administration, faculty and staff are preparing for face-to-face learning as well as remote learning in the Fall due to the uncertainty of Covid-19 rules and regulations. We will be prepared to begin instruction regardless of the way it is implemented.
I am beyond grateful to all of you for entrusting your child’s education to our school. How fortunate we are to have this strong faith-based community during these challenging times! Please pray for our school, as we all continue to pray for our families.
Yours in Christ,
