"And I say to you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." - Matthew 16:18

Principal's Corner

Mrs. Ingham's Message for May 15, 2022

I know we are getting so close to the end of the year, and you would think that things would be slowing down a bit, but nothing could be further from that...we are in high gear with so many adventures and activities...no wonder we are all so tired at the end of each day (especially this old lady interim principal). Here is a sampling of what is happening with so much more to come:

* Linus DeDario in Grade 4 served as Principal for the Day this past Friday...a prize his Mom bid on for him at one of our fundraising events. Needless to say, we all had a great time with Principal DeDario. Linus served treats at lunch, took away all homework for the day, awarded double recess time, spoke to the whole school and congregation at the school Mass, visited and spoke to all SPS classrooms and toured the rectory, St. Bernard’s and got to boss around his siblings; Maeve in Grade 3, Elliott in Grade 1 and Jonah in PreK 4. Next month Daniel Johnson will have that same opportunity and I cannot wait to see what Danny
has in store... 
* This weekend our students will participate in the Diocesan EXTREME games with the guidance of Mrs. Wright our technology teacher and STREAM coordinator and Mr. Mark Gaynor, or Director of Technology. Students have built and programmed their own robots for this competition and we are all very excited* Monday May 16, our SPS School Board will see these robots and the arcade games that our students
have made, first hand, as the children will be providing a demonstration for them at the final school board meeting of the year.* On Tuesday of this week we are participating in the annual Diocesan Track Meet under the direction of Mrs. Leah Zahradnik and Mr. Will Greene, who have been preparing our students for this fun event. What is even more exciting is, after close to three years, our SPS bus will have its maiden voyage. “Mr. Norm,” will be helping us out on a few events the rest of this year, as our school bus driver, transporting smaller groups of students to the track meet, Darien Lake and Bowling. We are excited to get our bus on the road and we are so very grateful to all who helped make that happen!* Grade 7 students will be helping our friends at HART this coming Saturday as they serve at the CIRCLE OF HART fundraising brunch event. We are committed to being a strong part of our Lewiston community. Our students, who will wear their uniforms proudly, will show what a great place SPS is for children to learn and grow educationally, spiritually and as a contributing member of their community.* OPEN HOUSE...we cordially invite all families to come in to SPS on Sunday May 22 to check us out and see all that we are at St. Peter RC School. We will open our doors from 9:00 am-12:00 pm for all who would like to come and see us, meet the teachers and some of our families, and view the hidden treasure that we are at 140 No. 6th Street. We will have personal tours with parents and children and light breakfast snacks in the cafeteria. If this time does not work for you, please be sure to call the office at 716-754-4470, and set up a time that works for you...we are very accommodating! Some grades are close to closing as we are approaching our maximum class size...call now so you are not left behind or put on a waiting list. SPS is THE PLACE to be!* If you love PIZZA, stop in at Favorites on May 18 and mention St. Peter School. A portion of their proceeds for that day will be given to SPS and we are most grateful. Last year, Favorite’s sold a LOT of pizza on SPS Day, and we received close to $1000.00. Thanks Favorites!!!
 
Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we travel these last few weeks of school. You are always in our prayers.
God bless St. Peter’s.
God bless us all!

Mrs. Ingham's Message for March 13, 2022

We are busy preparing this week for a visit from Superintendent of Diocesan Schools, Dr. Timothy Uhl, who will tour St. Peter's and greet the children on Friday March 18, 2022. We are all excited to "show off" our school, our Lenten projects, and preparations which are witness to the Catholicity and faith-based mission that we live at St. Peter RC School. As another of our Lenten activities this year, the office windows have been decorated with purple crosses, created by each student and adult in the building that show a "kind act" we have done thus far in this Lenten season. The hallway between the school and the Church are a collection of Lenten pavers the children have written as they thank God for the sacrifice He made for us, for the many gifts we have been given, and to ask forgiveness for any offenses we may have made. And..added below this article are some pictures, as promised, of some of the many activities that have filled our
classrooms this past month. We have been busy learning and we learn best when we are having fun. Our teachers are at the top if the list when it comes to creating ways to celebrate special events through reading, writing, speaking and math activities.
Just take a peek!!!
