Students at St Gregory school celebrate mass with Father Cosmos today. During the Mass, Mme Belisle’s grade class launched the Orange Shirt Campaign by giving each of our new Junior Kindergarten students a special card to welcome them to our school.
Leading up to Monday, October 1st, all of our students will be engaged in activities that reflect our Board theme EVERY CHILD MATTERS: EQUITY AND INCLUSION = KINDNESS FOR ALL! For our young students, this will simply be Love = Kindness. We will be highlighting acts of kindness throughout our school. We hope you can also share acts of kindness at home with your family and friends.
It was a great first week back! We welcomed 76 new JKs to our St Gregory family and returning students and staff were happy to connect with friends they haven’t seen in a while.
Our first butterfly hatched and we still have 4 more at different stages of development. They are sitting in the front foyer if you want to take a peek.
Our first Catholic School Council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept 18 at 6:30 in the Library. We encourage you to join us. It is a great way to get involved and support our school. If you require childcare in order to attend please call and let us know before noon on the day of the meeting. Nominations for new Council members will be available after the first meeting.
Currently, our members are helping us prepare and organize the Welcome Back BBQ and Open House, scheduled for Thursday, Sept 27. 5:30-7pm
We hope you will join us.
Sunday, September 23 is St Mary’s Church Feast Day Celebration. 11:00 Mass will be celebrated By Archbishop O’Brien, followed by a BBQ, live music and activities for children. Notes are going home this week so organizers can gather numbers.
Looking forward to a great year!

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.
