"Inspiring students to love God, their Catholic faith and learning"


Please check your parent portal for any remaining fees that are due. Lunch balances are accrued daily so I will be billing your account daily so you can keep up with what is due. When you look at your balance, please add any additional lunches ($2.75 per day) to that and prepay for the rest of the year. Please call Kelley in the school office if you have any questions regarding fees due. Thank you !!!

Meet Our Staff

I am Betsy Bartow, director of after school care. This is my 5th year at St. Peter's, but I went to school here and graduated a long time ago. I then graduated from Helias and received my business degree with an emphasis in accounting and management from Columbia College. In addition, I also have many years experience in child education and developement with all ages, from preschool to high school. Before working at St. Peter's I was a stay-at-home mom and homeschooled my three, now adult, children. My husband and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in January and will hopefully have many more adventures together. I love reading, watching television, cooking, taking pictures and relaxing in the great outdoors. My home parish is I.C. where my daughter Paige and I recently joined the choir. I really love my job here at St. Peter's where I get to spend time with "my kids" and get to know their parents. 

Free Lunch

On Wednesday, May 15th, 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 free of 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. 

Dress Down Days!!

$1.00 Dress-Down Day for Uganda is on Monday, May 13th. Money collected will add to our ongoing connection to help build a school in Uganda.

Friday, May 17th, all students have been rewarded with a Dress-Down Day for the wonderful participation in the food drive we hosted last week. Thank you all so much for your generosity!
