On behalf of St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic School’s PTG, I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. The PTG's mission is to continue strengthening and supporting our school’s growth and to make it a thriving community for our kids to learn and grow to their full potential.
Last year with the incredible success of our two main fundraisers, the Harvest Hoedown and Saints Gala, our school was able to complete the S.T.E.A.M Lab and school Library. In addition, 10% of the funds we raised went to the school’s tuition assistance fund. Our school is still growing and continues to rely on the PTG to raise funds for supplemental services, equipment and supplies. Your continued participation in fundraisers is important.
Families, teachers, and staff are the backbone of the strong, supportive community here at St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic School. Family Involvement is a long tradition and necessity at our school and in fact, one of our school’s greatest strengths. For those of you new to our school, we encourage you to get involved and volunteer. Your ideas, time and talents are needed, and your involvement is invaluable for our students. Whether your commitment is big or small, there is a place for you volunteer!
We hope to see you at our PTG meetings held on the second Tuesday of the month at noon in the middle school building. This is a wonderful platform to discuss the progress or challenges we are facing and to support our ongoing PTG activities. If you’re unable to attend our meetings, you can stay connected with all the latest information regarding these activities and events by signing up for the e-newsletter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram.
We thank you in advanced for your continued support. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our PTG officers with any questions, suggestions or to volunteer in any way that you can. We are looking forward to another great school year where we can continue making great strides that benefit our students and staff.

The Parent Teacher Guild (PTG) consists of parents, teachers and staff that voluntarily come together once per month to plan and organize the school's activities and fundraisers. The primary purpose of all PTG-sponsored activities is to enhance the educational experience of all students at our school. The PTG does not set school policy or entertain complaints about the school, but does direct all fundraising efforts that benefit the school.
St. Peter and St. Paul School is proud of its welcoming, Catholic-Christian community, which is supported and made possible by all of the school families and volunteers that continually give of their time and talent. If you are interested in learning more about the PTG or just have a general question, please e-mail our executive board.
