Party Like It’s 1985

March 16th, 2018
Get ready to Party Like It’s 1985!
 
St. Peter’s School’s Blum Library received its last major renovation back in the totally rad 1980s. Thanks to the generosity of many donors, including the Blum Family, students were able to enjoy a brand new, cutting edge library for the time. This library has been a major hub for learning and growing at SPS ever since.
 
Here we are in 2018, and in this new age of constantly changing technology, we choose to honor the legacy of those who worked to create this special space for our students through our Library Renovation Project. Through funds raised during the Paddle Raise at our Auction, we will ensure our children have a updated library that will inspire a lifelong love of learning and books, as well as keep them on the cutting edge of technology so they can grow to be tomorrow’s success stories. So please join us in partying like it’s 1985 and help bring our library into 2018!

Class of 2018 Rube Goldberg Project

March 2nd, 2018

Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) was a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist best known for his zany invention cartoons. He was born in San Francisco on the 4th of July, 1883 – and graduated from U. Cal Berkeley with a degree in engineering. Every year, students at St. Peter’s School attempt to create a Rube Goldberg Project, in which students build devices to complete a simple task in a minimum of twenty steps in the style of American cartoonist Rube Goldberg.
