Students in the Montessori Preschool/Kindergarten program have had a great first few weeks of school.  They are learning the routine, focusing, making friends, and learning about teamwork–all with the guidance of our superb teachers and assistants.  There’s nothing comparable to a Montessori preschool experience.  Looking for a preschool for your child?  Call us to visit and meet our staff.

Thank you to Mrs. Beres for sending these photos!  Go Spartans!

READ ALL ABOUT IT! St. Peter’s School History & 150th Anniversary


Here is an excellent article about the 150th Anniversary of St. Peter’s School and the rich history, from its founding to present day.

Thank you to the collaborative authors of this article that St. Peter’s submitted to Richland Source, Mansfield’s very own nationally-recognized news site covering local news in Richland, Ashland, and Crawford Counties.  (Cassandra Parente, Bill Johnson, Jason Crundwell, Tressa Reith, Kathy Morris)

Thank you to art teacher, Mrs. Brafford, for sending these photos of her elementary, junior high and high school San Damiano Hall students’ artwork.  One art project is “positive and negative space”, another is “cityscapes at night”, and yet another “Georgia O’keefe Flowers”.  They completed these last week and she has them displayed in the hallway on the second floor near the art room of the high school.  Beautiful!

St. Peter’s Adds Officer Presence on Campus


St. Peter’s School is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with the Mansfield Police Department to provide an officer who will be present on school grounds at different times of the day throughout the week.   Over the past several years, this has been one of the biggest requests by parents to help provide an added layer of security.  Through the years, the safety of students and staff has been a top priority with our administrators and Safety and Security Committee.

The limited funds for this additional security were made available through the Federal budget this year via Title IV of the Every Student Succeeds Act, a catchall grant that schools can use for broad purposes under the umbrella of providing “safe, healthy learning environments for students.”  This $1.1 billion program was passed by Congress earlier this year.  Going forward, we hope to expand this program as funding is made available.

Looks like these kindergarten students had fun making hand prints so they could take home a special piece of art to their parents.  Thank you to Mrs. Hostettler for these photos on the first day of kindergarten back in August.

Be Kind!  Go Spartans!
