6. Holy Spirit Hustle Race Day information. Things to do to prepare for the run and what time students will be running. Look over and if you have any questions, let the office know.
5. During the month of October, we will be collecting donations at school for our annual Box of Joy service project! We are in need of small toys, school supplies, and hygiene items that will be used to fill gift boxes for girls and boys living in extreme poverty in developing countries. You may also donate $9 towards the shipping of the boxes. Make a check out to St. Peter Church and put in an envelope indicating it is for Box of Joy. We have blocked each column of the sheet off for each classroom in order to have enough variety. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
6. The Feast of All Saints is on November 1, which is a Tuesday. Typically, this Holy Day of Obligation is a treat day for our students. We will have students dress as their favorite saints for our observance on Tuesday, November 1. Each child should choose a saint that they are interested in and learn about that saint. Students in PreK and K-1 should just have the name of their saint. Students in grades 2-6 should have two facts about their saint written out on a note card. Students may "dress" as the saint, if they have clothing that will work for the costume. Often though, students bring two items that are "identifiers" of their saint as props to help them. For example, St. Peter is the rock on which Jesus built His Church and holds the key to the Church as the first Pope, so your child might bring a rock and keys. St. Gianna Beretta Molla was a modern doctor, so your daughter could dress as a doctor.
After Mass on Tuesday, November 1, Dcn. Michael will announce the saints we have and the children will stand up in their seats to show them. A group picture will be taken outside the church after we are finished.
While coming dressed as a saint is optional, there are some great websites with cute saint costumes that look easy to make. I have attached a few web links for you to visit. After our presentation, we will come back to school and have a treat in their classroom. PreK will participate in Mass that day and can sit with their parents during Mass as well as older students. All parents are welcome to come to Mass (this is a Holy Day of Obligation) and see all the great costumes after Mass. Students will go to the back of church at the end of Mass and then process to the front seats.
