150th Anniversary

School’s 150th Anniversary



On Friday, August 29, 2014 over 550 St. Peter students launched red and white balloons in honor of the school’s 150th anniversary. Principal Rudi began with prayer and then students of all ages set their balloons afloat! Many parents and staff members watched as the sky was filled with red and white.

Many other activities took place through out the school year to continue this celebration of 150 years of school ministry at St. Peter.  These events included historical displays, visits to a mock candy store with candies from the past 150 years, special school assemblies, 150 year Birthday Cake art displays, special red all-school t-shirts, a 150th year church service with a special cupcake reception, and an Alumni Weekend celebration.
