On April 30th, St. Peter School is spreading warmth and generosity by designating it as a free meal day for all students. On this special occasion, every student at St. Peter School is invited to savor a delicious FREE school lunch without any charge. The school aims to foster a sense of community and inclusivity by providing this complimentary meal, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to enjoy a nutritious lunch without the burden of cost. It is a thoughtful gesture that not only supports the students, but also reinforces the spirit of unity and care within the school community. **This does not include parents participating in the Parent Lunch that day. Parent lunch is $3**

St. Peter School is delighted to announce a series of Parent Lunch Days, providing a wonderful opportunity for parents to share a meal with their children and experience the vibrant school atmosphere. On March 26th (A-E), April 16th (F-K), April 30th (L-R), and May 7th (S-Z), parents are invited to join their child/ren for lunch. A nominal Parent Lunch Charge of $3.00, payable in cash, applies to cover the cost of the meal. To ensure a smooth experience, parents are kindly requested not to bring fast food. Upon arrival, please check in at the office, where you will be directed to the cafeteria. To guarantee your spot and help with planning, we encourage parents to reserve their lunch by emailing dschrimpf@stpeterjc.org. St. Peter School looks forward to fostering strong connections between parents and the school community during these special Parent Lunch Days.

Meet Our Staff

Hello! My name is Maddie Gramlich, I teach 4th grade here at St. Peter’s. I have been teaching for 4 years, all at St. Peter. I was raised here in Jefferson City, and I attended St. Joseph Cathedral, and Helias Catholic high school. I earned my degrees in Theology, Marketing, and a Minor in French at Rockhurst University, in Kansas City, MO. I had not originally planned to teach, but God called me here in a unique way, through the intercession of St. Padre Pio (if you’d like to know the story, I’d be happy to share sometime). I’m so thankful for this community! I love coffee, reading, music (especially T-Swift) , and summer is my absolute favorite season. What I love most about my job is getting to know my students and seeing them grow in confidence. It is my hope to create an environment in my classroom where they experience God’s real love for them each day, and know that they were made to be saints.
