The Pepper Family
We’ve been a part of the St. Peter community from the beginning, literally. Our oldest daughter is attending St. Mary’s College at Notre Dame, and started at St. Peter (with Miss Julie and “The other Miss Julie”) in 2004. We currently have a third grader at St. Peter. We span 19 years and four students at St. Peter (with five more years to go). The most remarkable part of our journey has been witnessing the growth, not only in the school itself as it expanded from a preschool, to a preK-6th, to finally a full preK through eighth grade institution, but in the community itself. What started out as a group of nervous young parents looking for “a safe place to educate their children” has now become a confident group . . . of nervous young parents . . . looking for “a safe place to educate their children”. The change sounds insignificant, but it is remarkable.
We were hoping that St. Peter would provide an environment that would surround our children with kindness and compassion, expectation and forgiveness, accountability and encouragement, and most of all faith and love. What we found was our family. I can’t imagine how difficult and lonely it must be to try and raise your children without the support and love that we have received from our family at St. Peter Catholic School. I know that many simply don’t have this opportunity. It isn’t easy to make the sacrifices that we all make in order to raise our children with the St. Peter family, but I know in my heart that it is worth every bit of the effort. I am confident in my decision to send my children to St. Peter, and I am confident when I tell you that if you choose to send yours, you will find a family that is willing to surround you within a place that is so much more than simply a “safe place to educate your children”. Come join our St. Peter Family.
Office Administrator Carol Burns makes a positive impact on every St. Peter family. The LeVier family has two students at St. Peter. Parent Kristi LeVier says, "We chose SPCS because we felt comfortable talking to Mrs. Carol Burns. I spoke with her on the phone, and it was the comfort of her voice that made me realize that I wanted my kids going there (to St. Peter). She answered all my questions while I was out of state, and my spouse was taking a tour. We thank her for making us feel so welcomed!"
