Horse “Work”

One of the new “works” at Montessori this month of May is the Horse “work”.  Mrs. Bauer was invited to the morning and afternoon sessions to talk to the children about her personal experience with horses. She brought pictures of her horses, their reins and bits, her helmet and the blanket and saddle. The children were very interested in all of the equipment and even learned how to tell a horse which way you want them to go! Mrs. Bauer even let them sit on the saddle she uses with her horses!

Thank you to Mrs. Kemerling for these photos and information.

Monsignor Dunn Annual Meeting


The last all-school Mass with grades 1-12 was celebrated last Thursday in honor of Monsignor Edward Dunn.  Having challenged the students back in September to memorize the wording on the elementary cornerstone, Father Jeremy asked during his homily if anyone could recite it and one young gentleman nailed it.  Every student and staff member was also given a St. Peter holy card and together they recited the prayer.

The Monsignor Dunn Foundation also held their Annual Dunn Foundation Meeting Lunch at noon with a special presentation by Bill Johnson on the stained-glass windows of the church and the efforts in process to preserve them.  Following lunch, Father Hite blessed a lilac tree that was later planted in memory of Monsignor Dunn. Father Jeremy and Mr. Wasiniak helped with the planting, along with Regina’s Kids. Sister Bernard Marie and Sister Paula were on hand, as well as three high school representatives to the Monsignor Dunn Board.

Thanks to Mr. Bob Vaccaro and Austin Smith who helped prepare the site for planting.  Special thanks also to Todd Tuttle Landscaping for providing the tree.

Thank you to Mrs. Chengelis for some of these photos.

The kindergarten class has been very busy working in groups and using their ipads to do research on animals.  Thank you to Mrs. Carrier for sending these photos.

Academic Challenge

The rebroadcast of the April Academic Challenge match against Mt. Gilead will air on Wednesday, July 22, and Sunday, July 26, 8:30 p.m.  It was a very close match and although they lost (14-12), the guys did a nice job according to moderator, Mrs. Maryanne Chengelis.  Thank you to moderators Mr. Steve Bernath and Mrs. Maryanne Chengelis and to the students who represented St. Peter’s High School during this school year’s competitions.

Go Spartans!

Thank you to Mrs. Chengelis for these photos and for the information.
