For the month of May, artwork by the Class of 2017 will be on display at Milk & Honey, located on 4th Street between Lombard and South. The works were created after our Eighth Grade studied colonial Philadelphia architecture and one and two point perspective. Students drew Philadelphia scenes, carved them from rubber, and printed them.
On Wednesday, May 17th at 6:30 PM all Upper School students will present the findings of their yearlong Independent Study Projects (ISP) in a fair-style event for the St. Peter’s School community. Since September, Fifth through Eighth Graders have spent two periods each week in addition to time outside school investigating selected topics, ranging from training bonsai trees to learning Turkish to designing jewelry from recycled materials. Thank you to their families, faculty mentors, and community experts for providing guidance and sharing expertise regarding their wide-ranging topics.
Due to the forecasted heavy rain and thunderstorms, St. Peter’s School will host its 52nd annual May Day celebration on Monday, May 8th at 3 PM. The festival originated in the northern hemisphere and serves to honor the arrival of spring. Students perform traditional garland, ribbon, sword, and maypole dances, along with more contemporary song and dance numbers. This historic event, which is followed by a family picnic on Wiggins Field, is one of the School’s longest-standing traditions.
At St. Peter’s School, we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week by recognizing our talented and committed faculty, some of whom have dedicated decades to the School. The Parents’ Association will honor this outstanding group by hosting a faculty breakfast on May 2nd and gathering notes of appreciation for teachers from our families. Thank you SPS faculty for everything you do to support students and make St. Peter’s School our warm, nurturing second home!
May Day is a historic event celebrating the arrival of Spring and one of the St. Peter’s School’s longest standing traditions. After the celebration, families are welcome to picnic on the Sally Wiggins Field. The School will be open for lavatory access until 7:00 PM.

When a man is accused of abducting half a dozen cats, it’s a simple open-and-shut case, even for a jury that’s filled with oddballs like a dim-witted PR “maven,” a bickering couple, and a man obsessed with french fries. Although every scrap of evidence indicts the accused, Juror #8–a wannabe lawyer–believes that the “Cat Burglar” is innocent. Will he be able to sway the other jury members? Or will they side with Juror #3–the only sane one in the bunch–in this hilarious parody of 12 Angry Men.
