Last Friday, during Mass, we took time to acknowledge our Saint of the Month, St. Francis of Assisi, and his love of God, nature, and animals.
The students brought in their favorite stuffed animals. Fr. Luke did a special reading and blessed their animals. We also celebrated
our 8th graders by blessing their new sweatshirts.

This past week, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul began the Junior Society at St. Peter School. Our students have been so excited to follow through on
the mission of "kids helping kids." This month our students will be collecting new or gently used scarves, hats, and gloves/mittens. We currently
have 7 students signed up to manage and organize the donations, as well as speak to their peers about the program. I am so proud of everything they
have done so far and look forward to seeing what our students can bring in to help! A big thank you to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul for
sponsoring this group, especially Mrs. Linda Nowak for her time.

Here at St. Peter School, our students are showing us what they can contribute to the world every day! This past week, the Student Council held their annual
election, looking for representation from each grade level, as well as a President and Vice President. The middle school gathered together in the cafeteria to hear
speeches and ask questions of their Presidential nominees.
Congratulations to our winners:
President: Alexander Wesley,
Vice President: Ducain Neal,
7th grade representatives: Philip Allen, Daniel Johnson,
Kirsten Nelson (alternate)
6th grade representatives: Linus DeDario, Luke
DeVantier, and Kaitlyn Nelson (alternate)!
I also want to shout out the students who received positive referrals in September: CJ Ambrosia, Reese Berrigan, John Cheladyn, Linus DeDario, Joey Destino,
DJ Greer, Olivia Hufnagel, Daniel Johnson, Raelyn Just, Jase Lichtenthal, Vanna Muldoon, Kirsten Nelson, Grace Pacillo, Alexandria Sanchez, Ilaria Tamul.

This past week has been an exciting one ! For the first time, I was able to join some of our school families for the Peach Festival parade. Our float was awesome! We had so much fun sharing candy and smiles with everyone who came to see the parade and each other. Thank you to all of those participating families and, especially, to the HSA and the Martin and Just families for providing our float! On Tuesday, Sept. 19, the class of 2024 celebrated their first big moment of the year when they joined eighth graders from all over the Diocese of Buffalo at St. Joseph's Cathedral in downtown Buffalo. We enjoyed the mass led by Bishop Fisher and the history he shared with us during his homily. We are thankful, too, that Fr. Luke was able to join us for the celebration!

The school year is off to a great start! With more than 170 students joining us on the first day, we spent our first week getting to know old and new friends, learning new procedures, and finishing the week off by praying together at mass. Our teachers successfully led our first mass and modeled the reverence we want to see from everyone while celebrating mass. This year, we will be focusing on how our lives can be improved when we follow God. Our theme Journey with the Holy Spirit represents all that we aspire our students to be: faithful to God, full of hope for their future, and people willing to spread love in the world. If the rest of this year is anything like our first week, it will be wonderful!
