State of Ohio Auxiliary Services

When the State of Ohio Legislature appropriates funds for auxiliary services to non-public schools the programs will be implemented. These bills are passed every two years and sometimes the programs change. The programs are handled through the Huber Heights Board of Education who receives the money from the State of Ohio and in turn does the hiring, ordering, etc., for the non-public schools in its district. Programs included are:

  1. Health Services: The clinic aide conducts eye screening, hearing screenings, and scoliosis screening. Children not in the specific grades being tested may receive the test upon request of the parents or the teacher. The clinic aide is also available in the clinic for the medical needs of the children.
  2. Office Clerk: Funds are allocated to provide the services of a clerk whose responsibilities include submitting orders for the textbooks, materials and supplies that can be purchased with the Auxiliary Services funds.
  3. Speech and Hearing Therapist
  4. Intervention Specialist

Grading System

Each quarter a progress report is issued. The basic information on this report gives the evaluation of the child’s progress in the various subject areas, in work habits, and in behavior.

The report card grading scale for students in grades 4 through 8 are:

100 – 93
A – Superior
92 – 85
B – Very Good
84 – 77
C – Satisfactory
76 – 70
D – Below Average
69 – Below
F – Failing

School Supplies


Homework is an extension of the work that is presented in class. It is extremely important that children learn at an early age how to organize their time in order for homework to be completed. One of the responsibilities of parents is to see that a set time and place are provided EACH day for the completion of homework.

Responsibilities of Students

  1. Do required assignments
  2. Submit complete assignments on-time
  3. Have required materials and supplies
  4. Have an assignment notebook on their desk at all times (grades 4-8)

The following schedule is provided as a GUIDE (not an adopted policy) for time allotments for homework. This may vary from time to time considering the type of assignment, especially in grades 4-8.

Grade 1 — 20 minutes

Grade 2 & 3 — 30 minutes

Grade 4 & 5 — 45 to 60 minutes

Grades 6 – 8 — 60 to 90 minutes

Honor Roll

If a student has a “D” or “F” in Art, Music, P.E., or Spanish, that student is NOT eligible for either Honor Roll.

The following subjects (English, Math, Reading, Religion, Science/Health, and Social Studies) are then averaged together to determine which Honors the student receives. The Point System used is: A = 4 points, B = 3 points, C = 2 points, D = 1 point.

First Honors = 3.7 to 4.0 grade point average
Second Honors = 3.4 to 3.69 grade point average

Standardized Testing

The testing program strives to improve the quality of instruction, provides a basis for curriculum development, measures pupil progress, and indicates the quality of educational service provided by the school.

Standardized tests are administered to all students in grades 2-8.

Uniform Policy

Personal appearance and appropriate attire are important to the learning atmosphere at St. Peter School.  In order to ensure uniformity and consistency in prices, St. Peter has negotiated with Educational Apparel to provide uniforms for our students and they will sew-on patches upon parent request.  Gently used uniforms are available in room 209.

School crests must be placed on vests, all shirts, blouses, sweaters, and jumper.
