    • Through a combined effort of St. Peter's Parish led by Father Pat and Saint Peter's School the whole school building is having new lights installed in the hallways, bathrooms, classrooms and cafeteria. These new lights are brighter and energy efficient. The classrooms are getting new light covers too. Click on the title for some pictures.
    • With a grant that was obtained by our Principal, Mrs. Susan Traudt, we were able to continue the parking lot improvements by having the lot lined with parking spaces, crosswalks and fire lanes. These improvements will help with improving safety and convenience for all. Click on the title to see pictures.
