Please see the information below regarding updates for the 2021-2022 school year:

Joplin Area Catholic Schools Mission:

Dress Code
You will find the 2021-2022 dress code attached to this email.
The only change we made is that we will no longer allow sweatshirts or jackets with hoods. 
*We will allow royal or navy blue 1/4 zip pullovers to be embroidered with our logo (MC/StP/ or round McAuley or St. Peter’s logo).
**I will send more information regarding logos on shirts/jackets and allowable t-shirts for Mondays and Wednesday.

School Supplies: St. Peter’s
I have attached the St. Peter’s school supply list to this email. Please read through carefully as each grade level may need a different amount of each item. Although 6th graders do not need the type of calculator listed, once purchased it will be used through 12th grade.
Finally, our new English series places an emphasis on incorporating novel studies with non-fiction passages and classic literature. As we continue to strive to provide high quality education, we are requesting that each student acquire a copy of each title listed.
McAuley students will receive school supply information in each of their classes when school begins.
