Our Mission

 

Saint Peter Central Catholic School is a community of learners.  We nurture children from Preschool through Grade Eight. We provide a caring atmosphere and a sense of belonging by acknowledging each individual. Within our Catholic, culturally diverse community, we endeavor to enrich and foster the intellect and spirit of all who enter. Our environment encourages children to reinforce their connection to God, to make responsible decisions, and to reach their academic potential.

What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Under the guidance of Mrs. Jocelyn Cowan, a parent at St. Peter’s, the children in Ms. Bello’s 4th Grade class got to observe the miracle of new life up close and personal.  Mrs. Cowan brought in an incubator with fertilized chicken eggs.  The 4th Graders kept watch for almost 21 days before the first chick hatched over the weekend of May 16 -17.  Over the next several days 29 chicks hatched. The children each named their favorites and have spent time observing how they interact with one another.  The chicks went home with Mrs. Cowan, but the 4th Graders learned a lot and had great fun.  Thanks, Mrs. Cowan!

Mrs. Nordahl's Multi-Age 2/3
In Science, we are studying birds.  One bird we learned about was the owl.  The children dissected owl pellets.  They found bones that belonged to small rodents and birds.  This was a wonderful learning experience.  The pictures above show some of the children as they dissected the pellets and found bones.  Enjoy the pictures.
Just unwrapped our owl pellet.
We just started dissecting.
Digging deeper into our pellet.
We are all excited to see what is inside.
Look what we found!

Grade 4 enjoys "Eating their cells."

Eating our Cells


Ms. Bello and Ms. D’Alessandro’s Fourth Grade students are studying about the parts of a cell in Science.  As a special activity, the children created cells out of cookies and a variety of candies and frosting.  After they explained what cell part each candy represented, they were able to eat their “cells”.  It was a delicious lesson!

 

Click on the picture above to view a video of the students creating edible cells.

Please allow time for loading the video.   Enjoy.

Baptism Day in Grade 2
       Ms. Giuliani and Mrs. Nordahl's Second Graders learned about Baptism.  Once they learned about it, they celebrated the "baptism" of Annette Marie.
  
       "Father" Massimo welcomed the parents, Ainsley and Colin, and the godparents, Natalie and Jack.  The whole Second Grade was happy to be part of the big day.

Smilebox slideshow of the happy event.
Main Character Puppets
1st Grade reading is fun when you have a supportive 3rd Grade friend!  Mrs. Etre's and Mrs. Riordan's classes partnered together to create Main Character Puppets.
  
             - they shared a story
             - identified main character
             - planned the type of puppet to make
             - created a checklist of supplies
             - then let their creativity soar!

Great job everyone!

We hope you enjoy the video of our puppets.  Click on the picture on the left.  
Please allow time for it to download.
Grade 5

These are some examples of the paper mache cupcakes the the students in Grade 5 made in art.  They were inspired to make them when they studied the American Sculptor Claes Oldenburg. They look good enough to eat!
