Last Sunday of Ordinary Time…

As we finish out the liturgical calendar with one more week of Ordinary Time, we have extra-ordinary opportunities to have a great week leading into Advent. Many great things ahead, and we are pumped about another fun week filled with learning at Saint Peter.

Grade 7/8s were working hard reviewing for their Algebra Test coming up this week!

Our ELKP parents had a Math and Munchies Morning where they were able to connect with some other parents, practice using some simple Math strategies to support their child, and bring home some Math Games and Tools to try at home. PLUS, it was a lot of fun. Huge shout out to the ELKP Team for making such a special morning happen!

Good times in Ms. Hamon’s class whether kids were enjoying a snack or learning about procedural writing by making lemonade.

Mr. Smart’s Class did some great work on fractions this week!

Our Catholic Parent Advisory Council Fundraising Sub-Committee met on Thursday Night. It was a great meeting and lots of details to follow. If you want to get involved, please reach out to Bree Almeida. Bree’s email is

Popcorn Thursdays …Students and Staff Love it!

Our grade 8s will selling Popcorn for $1 each Thursday to raise some funds for their graduation. The idea is that the grade 8s take a leadership role in this, so the sales will be cash only and will take place weekly on Thursdays. If you happen to send your child with a dollar, they can enjoy popcorn. If not, they can always enjoy another week. We will be selling the popcorn weekly until Christmas. If it remains popular, we may continue throughout the winter and into the Spring. It will definitely be delicious while it lasts!
