Unique Traditions

A Spartan Homecoming is a winter homecoming.  At St. Peter’s, the homecoming queen is crowned during basketball season – usually in January.  The first homecoming queen was crowned in January of 1959.  The queen and her court and escorts are members of the senior class, and underclassmen make up the Rose Arc court.  Two lucky elementary or Montessori students have the honor to be the crown bearer and escort. 

May Crowning

In the Catholic Church, the month of May is a special time to honor Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ.  Each year, a member of the senior class is given the honor of crowning the statue of Mary at St. Peter’s Church with a wreath made of fresh flowers.

The May Crowning ceremony is the first opportunity for members of the senior class to don their graduation robes.  Our second-grade students also take an active role in the ceremony – celebrating our Catholic students who receive the sacrament of First Communion in May.  Students are encouraged to wear their first communion suits and dresses.
