St. Peter

Feast Day: June 29 

       Peter, the first pope, was a fisherman from Galilee. Jesus invited Peter to follow him, saying: "I will make you a fisher of men." Peter was a simple, hard-working man. He was generous, honest and loved Jesus very much.

       This great apostle's name was Simon, but Jesus changed it to Peter, which means "rock." "You are Peter," Jesus said, "and on this rock I will build my Church." 

Our Mission

 

We, the faith community of St. Peter Central Catholic, provide a caring atmosphere for students in Preschool through Grade Eight. Within our Catholic, diverse community, we strive to welcome, educate and acknowledge each individual.  We nurture the intellectual curiosity and spirit of all.  We are committed to treat all that we encounter with respect, love and mercy.  We are called to be Disciples of Christ's love.

We are so proud of our Preschool.  
Thank you so much. 
A message from Mrs. Kursonis

Congratulations SPCC

We are pleased and honored to announce that St. Peter CENTRAL Catholic has been re-accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges for another ten years. 


Thank you to the faculty, staff, parents and students who helped to make this endeavor so successful. The team of seven “outsiders” had wonderful things to say about our school, especially our children. (I always say, we have the best).  They acknowledged all of our strengths and commended us on certain things that they thought were exceptionally well done. There were no surprises in our weaknesses as we had identified them all ourselves in our eighteen month self-study.

Baystate Parent Best of 2017

Best Preschool Winner: St. Peter Central Catholic!   

STREAM comes to St. Peter Central!

Thank You WPI

We are excited to announce that St. Peter’s has been chosen as one of three schools to partner with WPI to initiate a STEM program. A team of eight staff spent a few days attending workshops at WPI in order to more fully understand our undertaking. 

We have chosen to call our program STREAM. (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math.) The team presented to the entire faculty on our Professional Development days prior to our opening day of school. All teachers are on board and excited about lighting the fire of learning in each student. More information about this endeavor will follow. 

Hurricane Relief Drive
A message from Mrs. Kursonis:

“And the King will say to them in reply, Amen I say to you; whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40


Our “Donation Day” netted $2,900.00 for those effected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our community.  The money was sent directly to Bishop McManus’ office to be added to the collection of other schools and parishes.  Catholic Charities, USA will make certain the money goes into the hands of those in the greatest need.

May God bless you all. We are indeed teaching our children the meaning of the Gospel Message.

Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement Weather Instructions for Rain or Snow


For the safety of all our children please take the time to read:


On days when the weather prohibits “Before School” activity in the school yard, the students will report to the Gym between 8:30 - 8:50.


Protocol is as follows:  The gate is opened, all must drive into the school yard and circle through and proceed to the gym doors.  Your child should be ready with backpack, etc to exit the car.  The gym doors will be opened for your child.  You should then proceed to your departure route. PLEASE DO NOT STOP in the fire lane or on the opposite side of the driveway and allow your child to exit the vehicle. It is an accident waiting to happen.  We have spent a great deal of time developing a safe plan, please cooperate.  Thank you.


If you arrive after 8:50, please bring your child to the front door (except Preschoolers) If you allow your child to enter the gym and find his or her classroom they are unsupervised, as we will have already exited the gym at the sound of the 8:50 bell.

SPCC Fright Night Pumpkins 2017

Second Grade 
Resurrection Gardens

 Ms. Giuliani's and Mrs. Nordahl's Second graders created their own Resurrection Gardens.  A resurrection garden is a garden created in a container complete with Jesus' tomb.  The children placed planting soil, pebbles for a path, moss, grass seed, a small clay pot for the tomb and a larger stone to cover the tomb's entrance.  The children have to take turns daily in spraying their table's garden.  As the grass grows and life comes to the garden, it reminds the children of the Resurrection of Jesus. 

Enjoy the slideshow below. 



St. Peter's Prayer Parents

Please consider being an SPCC Prayer Parent! 


There is no in-person time commitment.  The commitment is to pray the Rosary once a week on Wednesdays, on your time, for the intentions of the SPCC students, staff and their families. 


Why the Rosary?  The Rosary is a beautiful meditation, since it relies on several key scriptural sequences (called mysteries), which celebrate Christ's life, death, resurrection, and much more.


It can be prayed all at once.  Or, it can be prayed spaced out throughout the day!  (Pray the first decade in the shower, the 2nd decade on the drive to work, the 3rd decade in the car in the pick-up line at school, etc.)


We will begin praying Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

SPCC Prayer Parents will receive a copy of the Rosary prayers.


Please join us and have a blessed school year!


For further information, email Bridget Klofft at bridgetbakes@yahoo.com.

Service Hours
For those families not familiar with the Program, St. Peter Central Catholic School participates in an optional program to reduce tuition costs each year.  Parents choosing to participate in this program must fill out a Service Agreement sign-up form and work the hours each year in order to qualify for the reduction.

There are different ways a family may receive credit for work hours. Some of the Service opportunities are: Bingo, Christmas Fair, Book Fair, Spree Day, Fright Night, Auction, etc. 

All service hours are monitored and tallied after each event.  Credit is given twice a year.  The Catholic School Department will be notified.


For more information on Service Hours, please click here.

It is our hope that parents will serve on committees and volunteer in our school regardless of service hours.  
Our community thrives on parental support.
Thank you for all that you do.
