Principal’s Note
Dear St. Peter Prince Families,
The month of November is filled with the spirit of GRATITUDE. As we
celebrate Thanksgiving, we are reminded of all of the things that we should be
thankful for as we count our many blessings. We give thanks for a successful
Halloween Carnival and for the rain that caused us to reschedule. We give
thanks for our beautiful new gym floor and for healthy student athletes who enjoy playing on the gym floor. Of course, we always give thanks for our families
and the friends who surround us that make our lives special.
We will celebrate Thanksgiving as a School on Thursday, November 19th
in the gym. We look forward to this event because it gives us an opportunity to
talk with other school families as we share a
meal together. Here are a few quotes that I
would like to share about GRATITUDE:
Blessings,
Elaina Satsky, Principal

Afternoon Carpool Notes:
Please note: As a safety precaution, we always dismiss walk-ups after the carline is over to
prevent students from walking across a moving carpool line. Safety is always our first priority! The school day is over at 3:10 p.m. each day and the carline is the fastest way to
pick up your child in the afternoon. Parents are welcome to walk-up to pick up their child,
but please be advised that your children will be dismissed after we clear the carline, which
is usually 10 minutes after dismissal at 3:20 p.m.
We have space to buckle up your child if you pull forward and over, after you pass
the loading zone. Thank you for helping to keep our students SAFE!
