Spreading St. Peter butter & Love

The Kindergarten class is getting a head start on helping out the food pantry at St. Peter Claver Parish. Regardless if your child attends the Kindergarten class, anyone can help!  Here is a list of items needed to help out! 

The students in Room 2 visited the church last week and noticed a cradle set up in the entryway of the church. They were moved by the act of helping families in need that they are asking others to help bring in items needed for the RAIN Project.

Photo No-Go Show?

Last week it was posted in the Claver Chronicle, some options from LIfeTouch. Besides the input from my staff, I only heard from about two parents for the preference of a background. Either way, I have decided to not go with LifeTouch this second go around, due to slower turn around and the lack of professionalism in their photography (#sorrynotsorry). I have touched base with another local photographer to redo our class photos and to take holiday individual pictures! 

Dates & Details:

November 2-3 : Class Photo

November 9-10 : Individual Pictures - Free Dress

More information about times and appropriate clothes to wear, soon to come! 

::::Reminder - NO SCHOOL 10/17/16::::
