We, the faculty of Saint Peter Catholic School, are committed to providing our students with an education that reflects our values as Christians. Recognizing the uniqueness of each person, we believe a child is spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially endowed with the ability to reason and reflect upon himself or herself.
Each child is encouraged to involve himself or herself in the learning process that will foster individual growth in these areas. Because we believe this, we, as a dedicated faculty, will strive to create an atmosphere for learning.
Our parents and guardians are the primary educators of our students, and we recognize the importance of a mutual working relationship among parents, guardians, faculty and administration.
Throughout the school year our students participate in a variety of contests. This year our fifth grade students participated in the “Be a Voice for the Voiceless” Pro-life Poster Contest, sponsored by the Van Tassel Funeral Home of Bloomfield. Congratulations to three of our students – Breetzy Cuenca who won second place and to Alianna Vasquez and Ashley Diaz who were awarded Honorable Mention. Thank you to Izabela Van Tassel, manager of the Van Tassel Funeral Home who presented the awards to our students. Thank you also to Carin Bartels 4th and 5th grade teacher who supervised the contest. The posters were created to “raise pro-life awareness” and for “promoting a culture of life”.
