This February, the SEL Committee (Social Emotional Learning) will be hosting a challenge to encourage positive thoughts and actions around our school. We have created a calendar that is filled with ways you and your family can spend a few minutes each day being mindful and sharing in positivity. There is no reward or accountability for this challenge; you don’t even need to sign up!  Simply post the Positivity Challenge calendar in your home and join in daily, weekly or whenever you need a boost. We would love to see your participation through pictures and videos. Please send these to kott@st-peters-school.org or use the hashtag #spspositivitymonth to keep us posted on how you are doing.

In addition, we will be installing a display on the fence of Wiggins Field. There will be envelopes filled with positive notes and illustrations created by our students. It is our hope that the people in our community will take a note, feel the love, and pass along the positivity. Encourage your friends and family in the area to check it out!

SPS Maker Faire and Cardinal Nest Success

January 23rd, 2018

On Friday, January 19, 2018 St. Peter’s School held our third annual Maker Faire and Cardinal Nest event. This great day held excitement at every grade level. In the morning, SPS Alumnus Junius Jones ’15 joined us to speak about his entrepreneurial endeavors during the morning assembly. Our ECD and LS students spent the morning working on a STEAM Challenge that allowed them to create and explore the ideas of the Maker Faire at their level.

Our US students visited 5 sessions with professional facilitators who spoke about their careers and answered questions, or worked on projects with our students. The day concluded with our Cardinal Nest, where students were given the opportunity to present a creative product idea to a panel of distinguished judges for the chance to win funding for their invention. Thank you to all of the faculty, staff, and outside volunteers who made this day so incredible for our students!
