Thank y0u so much for all those who participated in Jump Rope for Heart. This year our school raised $13,775!!! Here are a couple of pictures from the day:
A huge thank you to our Catholic School Council that worked so hard to ensure yet another successful Carnival and BBQ. Mother Nature did not give us the best weather however many smiles were spotted on Thursday evening at the school. Thank you to the many volunteers who came out to help and donated cakes! We also wanted to thank the CSC for a great year. You work hard to ensure that we have a great school community and we truly appreciate all the work you do. Please note as well that the scheduled meeting for Thursday, June 21st has been cancelled. It is such a busy time of year – enjoy the summer and we will see you again in September!
Summer is a great time to curl up with a book and relax. Here is a Summer Reading Bingo to keep reading interest high. Print off a copy and cross off the ones you complete. Can you get a full card?
Our Kindergarten classrooms were gifted white pine tree saplings! Ontario adopted the white pine as an official provincial symbol on May 1, 1984. Found throughout Ontario, it is the tallest tree in the province and can live over 250 years.
Yesterday our Kindergarten classes planted these saplings. They will remain a symbol of our classroom community for years to come. The tree will continue to be nurtured by the Kindergarten students as they travel along their school journey, growing older and taller, just as the trees do.

Our school year is winding down, and as such, The Before School Reading Program will end. The last week it will run will be May 14-18th. We hope you and your child have enjoyed this program and we encourage you to continue to read and play letter games daily with your child to support the continued development of reading skills.
St Gregory will be hosting the Carnival on June 14. This is a great event that is a huge undertaking and we rely on parent volunteers. Our next planning meeting is Thursday May 3 – 6 PM . We can’t do this without your help. If you can spare a bit of time to join our committee we would love to have you help us for our biggest event. Please join us this Thursday for the planning meeting.
Today we are celebrating Secretary’s Day at St. Gregory … and we have lots to celebrate!
We are blessed to have two highly skilled, caring and fun ladies “manning” our front office (pun intended) – Mrs. H. and Mrs. M.
Each and every day they go above and beyond and we appreciate everything they do.
Now you might not know exactly what they do so we thought we would clear up any confusion and have a few of our students shed some light on their job description!
