The St. Perpetua Family proudly welcomes our youngest members, the precious Transitional Kindergartners, affectionately known as the TKs. Tiny in size but full of heart, our TK students are making their mark - thumbprints in the shape of a cross. Artfully displayed on watercolor paper in a gallery frame, these teeny thumbprints join together to show “We are Family” for all to see.
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” ~Matthew 6:21.
Special thanks to Molly Maduck, Kimberly Anderson, Tiffany Mapel, our TK teachers, Ms. Semenchuk and Mrs. Holmes, and the youngest members of our St. Perpetua School family.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Few things are as precious as the little hands and tooth-filled (or toothless!) grins of our darling 1st graders, and this “HAND-made” creation will ensure this fleeting moment in time will never fade. Each child’s colorful personality has been artfully captured by master talent, Elise Morris, then adorned by individual hand prints in classic black with white matting, signed by each child, and displayed in a high-quality gallery frame. This “Moment in Time” keepsake will surely take your breath away!
Special thanks to Lindsey Meinbress, Celia Valencia, our 1st grade teachers, Ms. Ganey and Mrs. Lee, and our sweet 1st graders for giving a hand to this special project.

What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Our beloved 8th Grade Class Tradition, “This is Me,” is just that… a personal expression by each of our beloved 2019 graduates. This journal-style memory book is a celebration of individual personalities, special memories and endearing characteristics. Filled with thought-provoking questions and sure-to-be-cherished hand written answers by each child, you’ll savor a glimpse into who s/he is today, at this moment. This commemorative album features one-of-a-kind portraits by hobby photographer Brenda de la Cruz Henderson, a class mother who devoted her love and time to try to capture the essence of each child’s personality. Accenting these priceless images are several special photos hand-selected by each child. You will relish this moment in time right before your son or daughter leaves the halls of St. Perpetua School and enters his/her new chapter of life. So, whether to mark the end of their St. P’s journey, take a stroll down memory lane, or just better understand what makes your teen tick these days, “This is Me” will be a treasured keepsake for years to come.
