School designated Certified Wildlife Habitat

The South Carolina Wildlife Federation has designated St. Peter Catholic School as a Certified Wildlife Habitat for the garden on campus. The school received it because the property provides the four basic habitat elements needed for wildlife to survive: food, water, cover and places to raise young. The school is proud of this certification and owes a special thanks to Dr. Frank Seguin for making the garden beautiful year round and to Michael Brock for seeking the certification.

Kayaking Excursion

St. Peter Catholic School eighth graders enjoy kayaking excursions, hosted by the science department, during the fall and spring as they get to know local waterways from an environmental standpoint.  Science Teacher Heather pairs with the Kayak Farm to make  this an exciting part of the 8th grade curriculum.

 

Third graders experienced the best part of living in the Coastal Zone! They met Ranger Mitch at the Hunting Island boardwalk where they all learned about the salt marsh and maritime forest plants and animals. Next stop was the lighthouse for lunch. Then students enjoyed combing the beach for teasures. They later made projects with their treasures and these are displayed outside the classroom. It was a beautiful day.
