Have you picked up and applied your new Petra car sticker? If not, stop by the school any Tuesday-Thursday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and get yours for your vehicle(s).

We’d like to invite all parents, students, faculty, and staff to join us for an outdoor campus work day next Saturday, August 19, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. This is a great way to meet and see members of our Petra community as we work to spruce up our campus and get ready for the school year. Big project of the day: plugging gopher holes in our playground! Please bring a sack lunch, wheelbarrows, shovels, trimmers, and gloves; we’ll provide coffee and donuts! Questions? Contact Operations Manager David Storebo.
