Welcome back to school! Mr. Suarez (Director of School Culture and Community Life), Mrs. Fresnoza (Director of Academics), all the teachers, and I hope that you had a restful summer break.
We warmly welcome all new students and families to our school community. In addition, we have some new faculty and volunteers joining our school family. Our new 5th grade teacher is Ms. Emily Storms. Ms. Sandra Ruiz and Ms. Myranda Empric are our new Mercy Corps volunteers. Finally, we welcome Mr. Jim Sanchez and Ms. Lissette Lopez as our new Athletic Co-Directors.
The school doors open at 7:30 AM. You may drop off your child as early as 7:15 AM at the Alabama St. gate. If you must drop off your child before 7:15 AM, please bring him/her into Church for the 7:00 AM Mass so that they will be supervised at all times.
The Pastor, Father Moises Agudo, has asked us to keep the parking lot on Alabama St. locked during the school day. It will be open from 7:30-8:15 AM and 2:00-3:30 PM for parent use.
The Que Pasa will be sent to you every Wednesday. In addition, it will be posted on the school website, www.stpeterssf.org and sent to you via SchoolSpeak. Please take the time to read through the newsletter each week since it does contain important information.
I look forward to a great school year with everyone in our St. Peter’s School family!
-- Mrs. Sandra Jimenez
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT
Back to School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 30. There will be childcare available if necessary. Please see the attached flyer for the schedule for Back-to-School Night.
This year, St. Peter’s is implementing a cultural vision with the acronym KEYS, which is based on our core values of Grow, Accomplish, Love, Serve, and Unite:
Knowledge feeds GROWTH.
Every ACCOMPLISHMENT needs courage.
You are LOVE.
Throughout the year the teachers and students will be focusing on how to live out this vision. Please join us in helping students to live their values in all they say and do.
Cafeteria service will begin on Thursday, August 24th. Please make sure your child brings payment for lunch if he/she will be purchasing their lunch.
Please make sure to read and complete all the forms that were sent home with your child today. The information provided on these forms is very important and due back to the office by Friday, September 1st.

California Law, (California State Law A354) requires that all students entering 7th-12th grades show proof of a Tdap (Whooping Cough) Pertussis booster shot. If you have not already done so, please submit documentation to the school no later than August 28th.
