It’s been a long time coming, but Petra Academy is proud to announce our partnership with Universal Athletic in Bozeman to offer high-quality Petra Griffin Gear that families can customize with their preference of color, logo, and at a variety of price points. These items can be worn on monthly Spirit Days with jeans in lieu of normal uniforms. Order by October 30!
We’ve made it to 500 pledges! This past week, students and parents were able to gather another 171 pledges, putting our total of pledged donors at 522! And, we’ve had 98 out of 123 (80%) students participate over the past three weeks. Currently, 1st grade is leading the charge with over 90 pledges collected, followed closely by 5th grade and 4th grade, respectively. Here are next important steps:
– Return all envelopes to teachers, whether new pledges or not. We are glad to accept late donations, but students will not earn credit for them.
– Make sure we have addresses for each donor so we can send them a tax receipt and thank you note.
– Keep studying hard for those spelling tests, as we still have two more after Fall Break! Once the testing is complete, we’ll send home envelopes for collection of donations.
Thanks for all your work, Petra elementary families! Questions? Contact Mr. Denison.

– 5-10 volunteers for clean up (1-2:30 p.m.)
– 10-15 volunteers for serving (noon-1 p.m.)

(The following is the second part of a two-part series on Latin at Petra Academy. Click here to read part 1). At Petra, we begin our 3rd through 6th grade Latin classes with “Jingles and Chants,” foundational elements of the Latin language sung or rhythmically chanted by the group as a whole. The rhythm and […]
The Romans were renowned for their roads, constructed for the effective conveyance of military might. Paved with smooth, flat stones that afforded the soldiers an efficient marching pace along straight paths, these roads became a symbol of the strength and reach of the Empire. Roman law mandated the maintenance of roads, so Roman engineers developed […]
