Together, we made it to the last few days of school! On behalf of the Leadership Team (Mr. Suárez and Mrs. Fresnoza), I want to thank you for all the support and encouragement you’ve shown us as we experienced our first year as St. Peter’s School administrators. Like the students, we learned a lot, and we look forward to continued learning and growing in the coming school year.
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 22!
--Mrs. Sandra Jimenez

Dear Aztec Families,
We have two very important announcements for next year concerning our sports program. First, we are so excited that we are GROWing! With growth naturally comes a need for more coaches. The most urgent needs that we have for our Fall season are: one boys soccer coach and one girls volleyball coach. Please let Mr. Suárez know if you're interested in helping lead a team! Second, as we look to create a more UNITEd front with all of our teams, the Sports Committee is excited to announce that beginning next year we will be selling our sports uniforms to our families. This is an exciting opportunity to get great looking uniforms that your athlete can wear for many seasons. Soccer sets will be on sale for $40, fully reversible basketball sets will be on sale for $45, volleyball tops will sell for $30, and baseball tops will sell for $25. Please save up over the summer to buy your fall sports sets when we come back for our 2018-2019 year!
SUMMER LEARNING CHALLENGE
Students in grades Kindergarten through 7 have 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. Plus, students who complete the Summer Learning Challenge by the due date will qualify to win prizes!
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. Summer Learning Challenge information will also be available on the school website, www.stpeterssf.orgif at any time your child misplaces the packet of information over the summer.
BVCC SUMMER PROGRAM
Registration is now open for the BVCC Summer Program. Weekly programs are available from June 11 - July 27. Tutors from the University of San Francisco will be available once a week throughout the program and can provide assistance to your child as they complete their Summer Learning Challenge.
There are still a very limited number of yearbooks available for purchase for $25. If you’d like to purchase one, please go to the office for payment.
