The Penny Wars started on Tuesday. Our hallway is vibrating with chatter and strategy planning. Don’t forget to send pennies to increase your class’s points and silver coins to subtract points from other classes. Our littlest kids just enjoy tossing their change. Me too!  

Please remember that my door remains open to you. We, at St. Peter’s will do what we can to help. Office hours are 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Contact the office at 410-665-4521.

Remain safely in His sight.

  • We still have children coming to school without a lunch or water bottle. We do not have cups, food, or water bottles stored at school for these situations. Please be sure that your child has a nutritious lunch and a filled water bottle before they head out to school. Thank you, in advance!

  • Parents in all grades have received invitations to attend a “Principal Chat”. Groups will meet individually with Mrs. Fales to share your thoughts and ideas. St. Peter’s is a supportive community. I want to be sure everyone feels included. See you all soon. 

  • In November, our facility is scheduled for all water outlets (including water fountains) to be tested and cleared. This is a yearly certification. SPES closed the drinking fountains due to COVID-19 concerns. Fountains will be reopened to quick drinks after inspection. Water bottles are still welcome in school.

  • Believe it or not, Santa’s Workshop (December 8-9) is around the corner! Our North Pole needs parent elves who are able to assemble, wrap, sort and display gifts, and assist our Little Land shoppers. As a parent, this was always one of my favorite ways to spend time with the kids.Contact PACE to volunteer. 

  • A Santa’s Workshop Shopping list was sent home this week. As you fill it out, please select the 5 people your child has chosen for gifts and return the list no later than Friday, November 11th. The earlier the better. Here is a little bit of the teacher coming out of me… Parents, please print neatly. 

  • Refer a new student to SPES and earn a $1000 tuition reduction. See Mrs. Fales for additional details. 

  • Recess parents are needed. SPES teachers need your help. In order for our staff to have more than a couple lunch breaks a week, we need help with the outside rotation of parents during recess.Currently, there are no helpers. Please know these 30-minute breaks are revitalizing and very necessary. One hour of recess duty is a way to earn service hours, spend time with the children, and help our teachers. Please contact PACE or Mrs. Fales if you can help our teachers.

    St. Peter’s Lutheran Church welcomes you to worship with us. 

    Regular Worship Services:

    Sunday Mornings at 8:45 & 10:15, with Sunday School at 10

Thank you for your time and energy!
