Together, we made it to the last few days of school! Our students showed so much growth this school year. Thank you for being partners in our children’s education!
Your child progressed and developed socially, academically, and spiritually this year at St. Peter’s. Continue to support them over the summer. Guide them as they work on their Summer Learning Challenge requirements. Attend mass and pray together. Seek out fun, new, and enriching experiences as a family. I promise to do the same with my own family!
I share with you this prayer to end this school year:
God of wisdom,
We thank you for all the gifts you have given us throughout this school year. We praise you for blessing us with knowledge, so that we may use this knowledge to make our world a better place—to be positive examples of love and service.
As we come to the end of this school year, we thank you for the good things you have done in us, and we praise you for all who have shared in the work of this school. We ask you to bless them in your love and give them refreshment and peace.
We pray that everyone has a safe summer, and for us to return to school even more ready to learn and grow.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns forever and ever. AMEN.
And don’t forget…
Grow, Accomplish, Love, Serve, Unite!
St. Peter’s has the KEYS to OPEN HEARTS, OPEN MINDS!
Have a great summer!
See you for the new school year on August 28!
--Mrs. Sandra Jimenez
Two of our teachers will be moving on from St. Peter’s School at the end of this school year. Mr. Guzman, our middle school math teacher, and Ms. VanConas, our Mercy Corps Volunteer, have dedicated so much time and love to our students. We are extremely grateful for their service and wish them the best on their future endeavors!
ACADEMIC AWARDS ASSEMBLY
Tomorrow—Thursday, June 6 at 9:00 AM—we will have our Academic Awards Assembly for grades 1 through 7 in the church. You are welcome to join us for this assembly.

There will be no BVCC after school services available tomorrow, Thursday, June 6 (12:30 Dismissal) and Friday, June 7 (10:00 Dismissal).
The Computer lab is also now closed for the school year.
FRIDAY—END-OF-SCHOOL YEAR MASS
This Friday, June 7 at 8:30AM, we will have our final school mass for this school year. Please join in this special celebration. Since it is a mass day—no gray sweats or free dress passes may be used on this day.
BVCC SUMMER PROGRAM
The BVCC Summer Program will be at St. Peter’s School from June 10 – July 26. Registration forms are available in the school office and at BVCC. If you have further questions, please call Rochelle at 415-713-0625.
There are still some yearbooks available for purchase in the school office. $25 for a full-color, hardcover memory book for this school year! Supplies are limited!
SOCCER COACH NEEDED
Aztecs! Do you play soccer? Are you interested in coaching?! We are very excited to announce that we will be starting a second-grade soccer team next year! The league is not part of CYO, as they do not begin team play until third grade, but we firmly believe that exposing our students to sports at an earlier age can only be beneficial! Please contact our Athletic Director Jim Sanchez at 415-722-3999 if you are interested in helping out!
SUMMER LEARNING CHALLENGE
Last week, students in grades Kindergarten through 7 received information about the Summer Learning Challenge. Completing this Summer Learning Challenge will help prevent the “summer slide,” where students can lose 2-3 months of reading and math skills every summer. This adds up—by 5th grade summer learning loss can make a student 2.5 - 3 years behind their peers who read during the summer.
Please look over the summer learning challenge with your child, and encourage them to complete the mandatory components of the challenge by the due date. Information about the Summer Learning Challenge is also available on the school website, www.stpterssf.org
Beginning next school year (August 2019), we will a have new uniform shoe policy to help show our UNITY as a school. Uniform shoes will be solid black or solid white rubber-soled shoes or sneakers; no boots. Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter.
