    Greetings, St. Peter School families, This issue of Tiger Tales is filled with lots of great information about im- portant and exciting upcoming events here at St. Peter’s. One of the many ad- vantages of belonging to a Catholic school is the community that we are all invited into as students, families, faculty and staff. We have been focusing on that community in a variety of ways this past month as we have discussed how we can take care of ourselves and one another, how we can serve at Mass and in our community, and how we can treat one another with kindness and com- passion to ensure our community is one filled with love and support. Another way you and your family can participate in our community is by attending some of the many events we have here on campus. Volleyball season is in full swing, EZ’s nights happen monthly, and all family and friends are invited to celebrate the Eucharist with us each Friday. Our students love seeing their families at these events and it is a great way to meet other parents, get to know faculty and staff members, and to see what is happening at school. In addition, we are working very hard to plan two of the biggest events of the year – PTC’s Halloween Carnival and the St. Peter School and Parish Winter Gala. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend both of these very important events! There are many ways you can support the Halloween carnival by sending needed items to school, helping your student sell raffle tickets, or volunteering on the day of the event. And we have just begun offer- ing tickets to this year’s Winter Gala at the special parent rate of $100 per ticket (limit 2 per family). No need to worry about making plans for Valen- tine’s Day this year. Grab your spouse, relative, neighbor, or friend and join us at the UIW Rosenberg Skyroom for the biggest party of the year. If you have items to offer for our silent or live auction, please let us know! Thank you to each of you for being a part of our community. God bless, Gabriel Duarte

    Eric Garza - Class of 2008

    September’s Alumni Spotlight is focused on a

    real hero - Baldemar Eric Garza III. Eric is an

    Emergency Room nurse. He recently donated

    one of his kidneys to his father, Baldemar II.

    Eric continued with the Brainpower Network

    graduating from St. Anthony’s Catholic High

    School. He is still good friends with many of

    the students who he went to school with at

    St. Peter’s and in high school.

    When asked about his job, Eric shared, “I work as an ER

    nurse so my jobs kind of all over the place, you never know

    what’s going to walk through those doors or what the ambu-

    lance is bringing us. Some days it can be slow with not so

    critical patients and other days it

    can be nothing

    but patients

    who are fighting

    just to live, most

    days are kind of

    a good mix of

    both.”

  • Page 5 Tiger Tales Newsletter

    Eric went on to say, “As a nurse we’re

    kind of on the frontlines at the bedside

    taking care of the people who come in-

    to the ER and I just try and make them

    as comfortable as possible and let them

    know they’re in good hands while

    providing the best care possible. I do a

    lot of educating with patients just to

    make sure they’re well informed and that way they can hope-

    fully avoid future hospital visits.”

    Eric works for the Methodist health system and really likes

    their mission statement of “Serving humanity to honor God”

    by providing exceptional and cost effective, accessible care to

    all,” because that is what they aim to do every day with every

    patient. He says, “ We work for the patients really, not for

    the hospital. It’s a tough job but I love it.”

  • “EZ” MONEY! Thanks to all of our families who have attended

    our EZ’s nights and placed your receipts in the

    “green house.” EZ’s gives us a portion of what we

    spend each month, and it is a great way spend

    time with our community. Here are the totals we

    received for the last two months:

    July 2019 — $118

    August 2019 — $274

    These funds are great extra help and the last few

    months helped us cover the cost of playground

    mulch! Thanks to all for your support!
