We are at a time in our province when we need to come together in conversation, gathering as a community to name and understand the challenges presented by an increasingly complex and secular society and to identify and build consensus around the opportunities that will shape our future.
Members of the community are invited to share their thoughts about contemporary issues in Catholic education. Your unique perspective will assist us in better understanding the challenges and opportunities for our Catholic schools and the students who attend them. Please take time to share your ideas and access the survey at:
Today at St. Gregory we were honoured to have the Jump Rope for Heart demo team here. They performed for the school and really inspired us all to get jumping! Along with the demo team was the current National Skipping Champion – Chad LeCoure! Fantastic!
A huge thank you to all who have sent in food for the food drive and money to buy bricks to build our school – Matt’s Dream. We will publish numbers after Easter but look and see what we have built so far:
Wednesday, April 5th Ms. O’Grady’s class visited Stoneridge Manor for mass. They brought flowers they made to share with the residents.
As we observe the season of Lent, we ask that you help those in need. Our Lenten Food Drive will run from April 3rd to 13th. The following items are in are in need: Juice and juice boxes, apple sauce, fruit cups, cereal, pancake mix and syrup, pasta and pasta sauce, mac and cheese. Toiletries are also needed: toilet paper, kleenex and paper towel. Thank you for your generosity. All items will be donated in time for Easter.
St. Gregory will be participating in an exciting school-wide competition in math beginning April 9! Mathletics is an engaging and educational website, connected to our curriculum, and they are launching a nationwide contest to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday!
Our school will be taking part in order to further develop a positive mindset in math and to encourage a stronger home/school connection in math. User names and passwords will come home as soon as all classrooms are registered. Play as much or as little as you wish at home and we will be able to track our progress at school and with Mathletics! Good luck and have fun!
