St. Peter’s is a Pilot School for TIPS Program
We are dedicated to providing a safe and secure learning environment for our students. To assist these efforts, the KCSJ School System has implemented TIPS, a comprehensive, web-based tool for reporting, tracking, and documenting incidents and concerns of harassment, threats of aggression, bullying, and other misconduct. St. Peter’s is the pilot elementary school for this program in the KCSJ diocese. All reports are confidential and can be submitted anonymously. This site is not intended to replace communication between parents, teachers, and administrators. You are always welcome to call the school office at 816.523.4899 to share concerns.

Capital Campaign Goal Reached
We have reached our initial goal of $6.2 million in pledges and gifts to the campaign! Thanks to all our donors, the cost of the school renovation is covered. During the remaining two years of the campaign, we will continue to seek pledges, gifts and grants to reduce the loan required to complete the narthex/gathering space.
Catholic Schools Week
Every year during the last week of January, St. Peter’s School celebrates our roots in faith-based education during Catholic Schools Week. All schools in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph participate in activities and events celebrating our Catholicity and the integration of our Christian faith into our daily academics. Enjoy this video, produced by the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, which helps tell the St. Peter’s School story!
While providing God’s children superior educational opportunities in an accepting and loving Catholic environment, St. Peter’s School serves its parish community and the greater Kansas City metropolitan area as a leader in preparing children for a morally responsible and educationally sound adulthood, grounded in the spirituality of Jesus Christ.
