National Week of the Young Child

April 6-12 was National Week of the Young Child. The National Association for the Education of Young Children sponsors the event every year. This year’s theme is “Early Years are Learning Years”.

The high school Child Development class planned a special recognition for all St. Peter’s families with children in Daycare through 3rd grade. Gift bags included a blue ribbon for Child Abuse Prevention Month, a parent care kit, a coloring sheet, a bunny craft, and suggested follow-up poems, rhymes and songs.  Over 200 bags were assembled and delivered!

Thank you to Mrs. Chengelis for this information and photos.

Third Annual IDITAROD Race Against Hunger

(Don’t miss the video link at the end of this story!)

St. Peter’s High School and Junior High students and staff will participate in the third annual Iditarod Race Against Hunger.  This year’s Urban Iditarod will again benefit the H.O.P.E. Pantry at Catholic Charities.  “House” groups will spend their energy and use their creativity for what will prove to be a fun and exciting mile-long race around the campus area with over 300 elementary students and staff watching and cheering them on.  SPHS alum, Matt Failor, who finished 15th in this year’s Alaskan Iditarod will be in Mansfield to visit with the students on the day of the race.

Congratulations to all the students and staff–especially coordinators Mr. Strang and Mr. Henrich–for their efforts to conduct a great event that will benefit those in our community!

ENJOY THIS GREAT VIDEO CREATED BY SPHS ALUM Eli Thrasher ’13 to get psyched, get pumped, be proud and look forward to this year’s Iditarod!
