St. Peter’s School was established in 1929, andgraduated it’s first class in 1932.
We are Distinctly Catholic
St. Peter’s School has at the heart of its mission a desire to bring all children to a deeper knowledge and love of God. We partner with parents, every child’s first educator, to provide students a foundation rooted in Catholic faith and values. During the 2010 – 2011 school year, all students actively participated in a variety of daily prayer experiences, attended weekly liturgy and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and recited the Rosary in devotion to our Blessed Mother. Fifty-two second graders received the sacrament of First Reconciliation in November and came to the table for their First Eucharist in May. As a school, St. Peter’s students generously gave of their time and talent by performing over 2,000 hours of service through projects such as raking leaves for our neighbors,
making and delivering May baskets to parish seniors, collecting donations for our parish food pantry, and responding to needs of the greater community.
