Parents

From the PA Chairs

 

Dear Families of Saint Peter School,


We hope this message finds everyone healthy and safe during this unprecedented time as we welcome each of you and your families to the 2020-2021 school year.  We would also like to extend a warm welcome to our new principal, Mr. Patrick Boyden, who has been working tirelessly over the summer with our amazing staff and various committee members to ensure a safe opening of our doors.


The main function of the Parent Association (PA) is to support the Advancement Office with major fundraising initiatives as well with community outreach, teacher appreciation and school spirit.  This year, more than ever, we hope to support our staff and students as they adjust to a new normal.  In order to do so everything will be reimagined and, with your help, we will be successful.  All parents are automatically members of the PA and your involvement will make a difference to both you and your child(ren) as well as have an enormous impact on the entire Saint Peter community. This year, all PA meetings will be held virtually on the first Wednesday  of every month at 6pm so be on the lookout for your Zoom invitation.  Even if you are unable to attend our monthly meetings, we always welcome your interest and involvement in any way!


We truly are excited to co-chair the PA this school year and grateful to be working with you as a community of parents, students and staff to make the school year a memorable and rewarding one, regardless of what is sent our way.  Let’s work together to make Saint Peter School the best place for our children to grow and learn!


In good health,

 

Wendy Burns (parent of grade 1 and grade 3 students)

Kathyr Ranger (parent of a grade 3 student)

 

 

Volunteer opportunities

 

Recess Duty Volunteer

This year students have additional recess time to provide more mask breaks.  In order to give teachers enough prep and break time, we are looking for parents volunteers to monitor these recess periods. Each period is 20 minutes long and takes place on the playground, turf or church lawn. In inclement weather, recess takes place in the Gym or the Cafeteria.

 

A few things to note: 

  • We ask that you commit to a block of time and a regular day. For example, every Monday from 9:00am-9:20am on the Turf. 
  • All volunteers will need to fill out and submit a CORI form as well have completed online VIRTUS training.
  • Training will be provided before new volunteers begin..  

To volunteer, find out about VIRTUS training or get a CORI form, please contact Kathy Flynn or Principal Boyden

 

Teacher Wishlist

You can view the list for each teacher and staff member here:  

Notes on Shipping:

  1. Wish lists work like a wedding/baby registry. Things like quantity needed are listed. Once an item is purchased from a list it is automatically taken off the list.
  2. Some teachers requested items not available on Amazon such as educational subscriptions or crafts from Oriental Trading Post.  Check out the “notes” section at the top of a teacher page to see these. Formatting the notes section is no easy task so apologies for the presentation. 
  3. The shipping address for the school is 96 Concord Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138 and the phone number is (617) 517-0101. 
  4. Please note the teacher/classroom as the recipient. We all know sometimes Amazon is quirky so if you include a gift note in the box as well that would be helpful.
  5. The school Tax ID # is 11623763.
