Upcoming Events

This Week:

 

  • POOLESVILLE DAY
    Yes, St. Peter's will be at Poolesville Day this year, but in a slightly easier way. We are having 2 pop-up tents, one for the Nursery School and one for the Bake Sale. At the Bake Sale we will sell water, cookies and brownies - keeping it simple! If you are interested in baking something, please contact Barbara A at bkandreassen@comcast.net . Remember, nothing that can spoil and please wrap in bags to sell for $1. All ingredients must be provided with your donation.

  • Our playground is getting renovated! In preparation for the nursery school we are building a new playground for Saint Peter's. While this is in progress the playground is closed. Work on removing the old playground is already underway, so please keep your children away from the playground area for their safety!
