There will be displays in the theater about nutrition, infectious disease, safety, dental health, tobacco use & more. Extreme Fitness will be here to do a special training activity in the gym. It will be an exciting & fun day for learning about keeping our bodies (temples of the Holy Spirit) healthy!

During Lent, the Cathedral will be hosting “24 Hours for the Lord” beginning at 5:30 pm on March 24. This 24-hour Eucharistic adoration will be led by parishes and schools with each hour beginning with a reflection. Sts. Peter & Paul School has agreed to lead the 12:00 – 1:00 pm hour on Saturday, March 25.
This event is open to Catholics and non-Catholics. It is a time of reflection, prayer and receiving of graces. Priests will be on hand to hear confessions. We hope you will participate in this prayer hour led by our school. We will invite SPPS students and their families as well. While only one person’s presence is necessary, our hope is that our school community is well-represented and shows that our priorities lie in prayer. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. God Bless you during this season of Lent.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and you are ready for a great new year! At SPPS, we take bullying very seriously and I am happy to say that our students are very good about reporting problems they see. However, to be sure we encourage reporting ongoing bullying issues, we will be using a new online reporting system called Sprigeo. Students will be able to report incidents online from their phone, computer, tablet, etc. This system includes a parent education module that I think would be very helpful in determining the difference between bad behavior and bullying behavior. Please take some time to review the module and talk with your children about the system and how it should be used appropriately. A link to the reporting side of the system will be posted on the SPPS website and the parent information can be viewed here: http://parents.sprigeo.com/
We are so lucky to have your children at SPPS and appreciate the support from the families to keep everyone safe and sound while on campus. Thanks for being our partners.
