AMERICA HERITAGE GIRLS  I am happy to announce a formation scouting group for Catholic girls and young women: American Heritage Girls.  You may have heard His Excellency reference this group in talks or articles, and I encourage you to familiarize yourself with this growing group.  If interested in helping get the group off the ground here at St. Peters contact

REPORT CARDS for Grades K-7 will go home on the last day of school.  Report Cards will be held if money is still owed to the school, and that includes hot lunch (check your lunch account online), missing library books, and track uniforms.  Report Cards may then be picked up during summer office hours once your account is paid in full.  If you have questions, please call the school office.

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS will be Wednesday mornings from 9-12:00 pm beginning May 31.

FR. KILCAWLEY’S MEETING  For those who would like to view the video of Father’s meeting last week, the Vimeo link is Thank you parents for your attention to such issues which profoundly impact our children.  An internet screening tool can be particularly valuable if your children will have any free time this summer.

SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM is working hard to make access to your Family Account as easy as possible.  As of this date, however, there are still 47 families that have not activated their on-line account.  This will be required in August (2017-18).  Unfortunately, the Family Key Codes that were assigned in March have now expired.  You will need to contact Mrs. Danaher to get a new code.  Please complete this task as soon as possible.  It only takes a few minutes of your time and will allow you to view all payments and purchases on-line.  If we can get 100% participation, we will purchase software to allow families to make electronic payments to their School Lunch Account.  Thank you for your cooperation.  God bless.
