WELCOME TO PETRA ACADEMY
Preparing Pre-K through 12th grade students in the Gallatin Valley to live purposeful, godly lives
Our annual Spell-a-thon has officially begun, so each week, we’ll feature one of our elementary classes to remind us (this week, it’s Mrs. Miller’s Kindergarten class). Contact your favorite Petra elementary student to support his or her spelling efforts on behalf of our school. For more details about Spell-a-thon (including what the fundraising goes to help support), read Mr. Denison’s Spell-a-thon post.
This Friday, September 28, is the official end of the first month of school. How’s it going? To catch us up and let us know how Petra can better help you and your student(s) succeed, Mr. Dunham invites you to join him and Board Chair Sarah Storebo for “Follow-Up Friday,” beginning at 8:40 a.m. this Friday morning in the Cafeteria. Mr. Dunham will present a brief 10-minute homework workshop with ideas to help at home, and the rest of the time will be yours to ask questions, share observations, and connect. There will be fresh coffee brewing, so come and go as you are able. We’ll start at 8:40 a.m. and shoot to be finished by 9:30 a.m. unless folks want to stay longer.

(Petra’s Spell-a-thon is our annual elementary fundraiser in which families and friends of Petra sponsor student spelling words. Click here for sponsorship information for Spell-a-thon.) There is a common misconception in this day and age of autofill, autocorrect, and spell check that spelling is not as important as it used to be. But that’s not […]
At Petra Academy, we partner with Christian parents to reassure them in their school pursuit to see their children faithfully stand out in the world. Good parents want their children to grow up to be good people. And most want a community of like-hearted people to help along the way. Parents want their children to […]
