CALENDAR CHANGE CHRISTMAS VACATION BEGINS AT NOON ON DEC. 20. (Previously the calendar said 21st. The Diocesan calendar said vacation begins on the 21st.

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS Coats for Kids Since 2009, the Knights of Columbus “Coats of Kids” program has provided more than 400,000 coats for kids in need. If you have any coats in good shape that are no longer in use, please donate them to the clothing drive this week. Monetary donations to the Knights of Columbus are also accepted via the school black box. $20 will buy a nice new coat through this program, but any amount is appreciated! Thank you for your generosity.
CLOTHING DRIVE is Nov. 13-17. Please bring in new and used clothes to school to be donated to Catholic Social Services. Let’s see if we can’t make the front hall impassible with our generosity! Recycling at its finest, reuse!
TOY DRIVE will run Nov. 27-Dec. 1. Please bring NEW TOYS to school during this time to be donated to the Catholic Social Services Toy Store – they will be used for presents for children in need. If you have used toys to donate in addition to new, please take them to the St. Louise Thrift Store and they will be warmly accepted there. Thanks in advance for your generous support of these children in need.

STUDENT PRAYER LIST The “Catholic Prayers to Be Learned” document on the St. Peter Catholic School website has been updated. This matches the form for the prayers your children have been asked to memorize.

RSVP the number of kids attending to Kristin.firstname.lastname@example.org to help us plan the number of cookies and cocoa needed. No charge – free-will donations accepted.

KINDERGARTEN If you will have a Kindergartener for Fall 2018, please stop by the office and fill out a “Pre-Application for Kindergarten” form, or the office can send you the form. Kindergarten preview is Wednesday, February 7 at 5:00pm in Bishop Vasa Hall.
PRE-SCHOOL registration form for the 2018-19 school year can be found on the school website PreK Registration 2018-19 You can sign up for either half day or full day. You may also email Shelley Moser at email@example.com for more details. Registration will go out to the parish at large on Nov. 19. Current school families have the first opportunity to sign up. Please turn registration materials in to the office or send them with your child. Next year our preschoolers will be in uniform also.
ARRIVAL TIMES 7:45 to 8:05 is our arrival window. Children arriving before 7:45 must be enrolled in the before school program or stay in the care of their parents until 7:45. If an additional section of reasonably priced extended day would benefit you from 7:30 to 7:45 let me know, please at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would consider adding the group if there is interest. Today there were between 20 and 30 children outside the building at 7:44, there should be no one unattended. Children may not be on school grounds before school without supervision for safety reasons. Older children are not to be on the playground equipment until St. Peter Staff supervision arrives. Some children have attempted to persuade parents that they should arrive early to talk to their friends. That is a fine use of before school time, but not until after 7:45.
