SPIRITUAL  LIFE

Learning today...Leading tomorrow. It is more than just a slogan here at St. Peter Lutheran School, but a part of our identity. We begin with a strong foundation in Jesus Christ, and extend into our relationships with teachers, students, and parents. We then nurture and build upon our foundation to develop students that are examples of faith in the community. The spiritual development, therefore, is a core value of our school, and at the center of everything we do. Each day begins with prayer and Bible study in the classroom. Memorization of Bible verses is a regular part of the curriculum. On Wednesdays we gather together for our weekly chapel which contains praise music, liturgy, pledges, and an uplifting message. Students also take a regular part in our chapel services. Students in every grade are responsible for leading a chapel service twice a year. In addition, they act as greeters, ushers, and flag bearers on a weekly basis.  

Our middle school students are also looked upon as leaders of our school. They lead chapel groups, team building, and assist in some of our ongoing operations. Middle school students also participate in a yearly retreat to Jenness Park. This event is a highlight for our students. The experience is designed to build leadership capacity, grow together as a group, and nurture our faith in Jesus Christ. Worship and Bible study, in addition to many out-door activities, is a key component of our trip.

DRAMA

St. Peter Lutheran School features a vibrant drama program with a full stage, sound, and lighting capabilities. Two major productions are produced each year - one at Christmas time and a full musical in the Spring. Students serve as actors, run lights and sound, and work back stage as well. Although most major parts are performed by middle school students, kids from all classes have opportunities to participate.


CLASS TRIPS

Every grade participates in numerous field trips each year. Our middle school students also have addition overnight trips. The year begins with a two-night spriritual retreat at Jenness park for grades 5 - 8. In the late Spring, the year culminates with a week-long trip for grades 6 - 8. In sixth grade, students attend outdoor science camp at Wolf Mountain. The seventh grade class attends camp in Yosemite National Park. In eighth grade, students attend a five-night trip to CIMI, the Catalina Island Marine Institute on Catalina island. 


ATHLETICS

Sports and athletics are an important part of student life. Every grade has three P.E. classes a week with our full-time P.E. teacher.  Starting in 5th grade, both boys and girls can participate in our league volleyball or basketball program. Volleyball is in the fall and basketball typically begins in January. We also participate in two Spring track-meets each year.
