What a difference a few weeks can make! Thanks to everyone who helped with Phase One of the big school move. Everything we need for the move to Southwest High School is stored in the gym, and everything being left behind is packed away in the south building. Workers have been on site since right after Memorial Day: taking down walls, removing windows, floors and stairs, and tuckpointing the stone on the exterior of the school building. We are right on schedule! Demolition will continue through June.
Updates are coming soon.
Our beloved Sally always took care of this event and made it so special for our 8th-grade students and their families. Please volunteer here to continue her tradition of creating a memorable gathering as our 8th-grade students leave St. Peter’s School. There are opportunities on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We’ll need our biggest crew on Saturday for the cleanup afterward. The gym needs to be empty for the “big school move” starting on Sunday!
The Landscape Maintenance Committee is devoted to keeping our campus beautiful and welcoming through all seasons. Can you help? We need volunteers to water and keep us blooming all summer! Contact Mary Hellings if you can spare a few hours. There is something to fit any schedule. Bring the kids, or just enjoy the peace and beauty on your own.
