What's Happening


St. Peter School received an Academic Excellence Award from the Diocese of LaCrosse.  The award was given to schools whose outgoing class scored in the top 4% of those who take the IOWA test in the nation.  We are very proud to have received this award.  This goes to prove what we’ve always believed; our students are among the best!

blanket making

During the season of Lent, the fifth-eighth grade students worked together to make over 20 fleece tie blankets.  The blankets were donated to local law enforcement agencies to be given to children who have experienced traumatic events.  Thank you to Carrie Geissler for coordinating the blanket-making project.  A big thank you also goes out to Julia Jurczak, Roxanna Swoboda and Beverly Goettl for coming to help the students cut and make the blankets.  Thank you also to all of the donations from the parishioners and families.

Thank you to of our volunteers, for all the time and talent you have given to the students here at St. Peter School. It is greatly appreciated and we have seen the results in the student's work and grades.

Geography Bee

On Thursday, January, 16, we held our annual school geography bee. The fifth through eighth grade students all took a written and oral test on their skills of our country and world's geography. The twelve with the highest scores competed in the basement of the church to narrow it down to one champion. These twelve were, Annemarie Rider, Christopher Pieper, John Lyberg, Scott Wild, Elizabeth Dachel, Rachel Smiskey, Olivia Burmeister, Jake Eslinger, Maxwell Houser, Elijah Swoboda, Leo Burmeister, and Noah Weimert. Olivia Burmeister won the competition in only five rounds!

Educational Value

"St. Peter's was more like a family than a school to me. I learned the importance of faith and how to put others before myself. I wouldn't be where I am today without St. Peter's School."

"St. Peter's is a gem, and a true Catholic School in every aspect! The highest academic standards, strong human formation, superb faith formation, individual attention to its students, and a safe, secure environment. Area high schools long to have graduates from St. Peter's and I am proud to have been a pastor of such a fine school."
