Parent Testimonial

I had a preschool parent send me a text this week titled: Mommy Moment

So tonight our daughter (a Kindergarten student) wanted her sibling (a preschooler) to walk with her into the dark bathroom until she could turn on the light.  Our preschooler said, “God said, Be not afraid!”  Wow…I love St. Peter

I love stories like these when our children are sharing Gods word in their daily life!  That is what we are about.  That is what a nurturing, loving Christian School can help to instill in our youngest learners!!  Let that gospel light shine!
