Athletic Director Needed!!
After two years the Baker Family is looking for someone who can take over the Athletic Director role for the St. Peter CYO Program.
Chad and Christina are willing to begin the “transition” this coming school year by working with the new family through
the volleyball and basketball seasons so there will be plenty of opportunity for the new AD to learn everything they need
to know to take over. If you are interested in serving in this role on your own or
by partnering with another family, please call or text Chad at 614-309-4104 or Christina at 614-306-9286.
THE WELCOME COMMITTEE is offering a meal to new parents returning home from the hospital with your new-born miracle of life. This is an opportunity for the family not to have to worry about what to prepare for supper. Please call Mary Riedlinger or Joan Kincade if you would like to have a nice dinner with no cooking
SPS Challenge Grant
I am always amazed at people’s generosity. In response to a recent mailing to our out-of-town alumni in which we updated them on the current happenings at St. Peter School, I received a phone call from a former student, Dave Logsdon, who wanted to speak further about how best to help our school. In our conversation, he decided to set up a “challenge grant” in memory of his mother, Carol C. Logsdon and in honor of his father, Maury Logsdon. The Logsdon Family Foundation will match up to $10,000 in support for our school, such as: school library, audio-visual equipment, technology, teaching and learning resources, and the gift that keeps on giving, the School Endowment Fund. If you would like to take part in this challenge, please mark your donation: "SPS Challenge Grant".
We thank Maury Logsdon and his family for supporting our efforts here at St. Peter School. Each gift is a blessing to our students, families and staff.
We have received another generous donation to the St. Peter School Challenge Grant, for a total of $6,425. The Logsdon Family Foundation matches up to $10,000. Thank you all for your generous support of our great school!
