Dear Prospective Parents,
Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Mark E. Smith and I am the Director of Admissions and the Grade 5 Language Arts teacher here at Saint Peter School. Thank you for your interest regarding admission to our fine school. I would first like to mention that not only am I the Director of Admissions and a teacher, I am also the parent of a student who graduated from Saint Peter School (Class of 2013). In fact, as I always like to tell prospective parents, I was a Saint Peter’s parent before becoming Saint Peter’s Grade 5 teacher and then its Director of Admissions. As my son has continued his education, I have been very comfortable in knowing that not only did he receive a great academic education, he was also instilled with a strong, moral/ethical education, a sense of social justice, the teachings of Jesus, and firsthand learning about the value of hard work.
Saint Peter School prides itself in its approach to educate the whole child. We offer a rigorous academic curriculum and modern amenities including our Chromebook 1:1 initiative for grades 6-8, the Hoff Technology Center, an updated science lab, interactive SMART BOARDS in grades 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6, Spanish instruction starting in our Pre-K class, and an on-site after-school program. First and foremost, however, we have an incredibly dedicated faculty and staff.
There is no better way to understand the true spirit and culture of Saint Peter’s than by taking a tour during a working school day. The tour lasts about 20-25 minutes and gives you the opportunity to see classrooms in action, meet teachers, students, and administrators and experience their joy, and most importantly, gain a real sense of what our school offers each and every day.
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a tour, or to ask some questions about the school.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Mark Smith, Director of Admissions
