Dear St. Peter Families,
I hope and pray that your child’s school year is off to a wonderful start. We certainly are proud of each of the students here and their bright and shining faith!
I want to inform you of two things:
First, on October 11, 2018, to celebrate our Blessed Virgin and the Holy Rosary, our students in grades 4K-5th will have a part in the Living Rosary. For the Living Rosary each child has a prayer in the rosary to recite. Fifth graders read the mysteries and the meditations. We create a rosary around the perimeter of the church inside. We will rehearse the rosary with the students on the 9th, and then we will pray the Rosary together at 8:30 on the 11th in church. Please join us if you are able.
Second, October 15-17 the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Association (WRISA) Visiting Team will be at St. Peter School to see how our school measures against the 13 Standards and 77 Benchmarks of the National Catholic Education Association. This process of Accreditation will involve looking at the evidence that has been put together over the past year, interviewing parents, teachers, students, committee members, pastor and principal, observing in classrooms, participating in our daily Mass, and basically looking at everything we do as a school. On the 16th and 17th, members of the Visiting Team may stop you at Morning Drop Off or Afternoon Pick Up to ask you about the school. The Visit from the Team will culminate with a meeting the afternoon of the 17th at 3:30. Later in the school year, we will receive a report based on the Visiting Team’s recommendations which will help us develop goals for the next seven years. We are excited, nervous, and looking forward to this event. Please pray for our school during this time, and for the Visiting Team comprised of principals and teachers from our diocese.
The Holy Spirit Hustle forms went home today. We are hoping for another successful fundraiser like last year’s record-breaking one. We have not decided on the incentive, but it is very likely that Mrs. Klaas and duct tape will become close friends once again!
That is all I have for now! Thank you all for your prayers and support of our school.
Mrs. Klaas, Principal

- Home and School Here to Help! A new feature of our Home and School will be our Pastoral Care Ministry. This feature is aimed to help those families who would benefit from meals provided for a period of time, a helping hand, or prayer. Example of type of help: Family A has a new baby. The Meal Train Coordinator, Jess Carrano, would contact the family and get the logistical information in order to set up a meal train. Other examples of family need: a family member in the hospital, a fire, natural disaster, sickness in the family. If you have a need that could be helped by our Pastoral Care Ministry please send Mrs. Klaas an email with your family’s information/need and a family contact member. Mrs. Klaas will pass this information on to Mrs. Carrano. Email Mrs. Klaas at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 608-831-4846..

- Josiah Caleb Neumaier was born September 7th and was quickly intubated and wisked away to the NICU because he had swallowed/inhaled a significant amount of meconium. While quite sick at the time, he is doing much better now and was released from the hospital on the 19th, still on oxygen as his lungs continue to heal. The Neumaiers are grateful to be together as a family again and appreciate all the prayers that have been said on their behalf.
As the St. Peter’s community, we would like to help one another during life’s more demanding seasons, like newborn-time, by showing our love through meals. Have you seen the bumper sticker, “Love People – Cook them food” — I guess that’s what we are trying to do!! If you aren’t confident in your ability to “cook them food”, no problem. A restaurant gift card is also a great support (especially if you buy Scrip 😉 If you are able, please sign up to provide a meal to help them during this transition. Click on the link below to go to Meal Train, an easy to use forum where you choose a date to provide a meal. The website has the pertinent information that you will need, but feel free to contact Jess Carrano if you have questions about how to use Meal Train (email@example.com).
- Following is a meal train link for Mr. and Mrs. Zepp created by Elizabeth Ulaszek. Meals can be delivered to school for Mr. Zepp to bring home: https://mealtrain.com/68e81q .
- Bucky Books are on sale from now until October 16. Please remember for every 5 books you sell, you receive a free book for your own use. We have about 30 more books in the office to sell. These books have been purchased by school. We need everyone to sell as many as they can. Each book nets the school $15. Cost of selling the books is $35. Let the office know if you would like more books sent home with your student. Monies can be turned in at anytime.
- Koats for Kids collection beginning Monday, September 10 and through October 6. Remember to share your family’s outgrown, gently used jackets, coats, snow pants, mittens, hats, gloves and scarves with those who are less fortunate. The campaign does not collect boots. Turn in items at school and we will get them to Klinke Cleaners. A box is available at the front entrance of school and in the rear of church for your convenience.
