The Peaceable Kingdom Committee is a group of students, teachers, and parents who are working together to promote proper behavior and a welcoming spirit at St. Paul of the Cross School.
In February, 2010, the students enjoyed a performance by the BOOM Troupe. This performance was coordinated by the Peaceable Kingdom Committee at SPC. The focus of the performance was bullying.
Topics covered in the performance were:
