Angel Tree Campaign

Click here for information about the local Angel Tree/Gift Basket Campaign.

During each Advent season, St Gregory Catholic School supports the Christmas Basket Program which provides gifts for children who otherwise might go without at Christmas time.

In years past, our students have donated hundreds of dollars to this cause. In this light, from now until December 11th, the school will be accepting donations from students and their families which will provide gifts for a specific child allocated to each classroom. Teachers will shop for the “angels” and gifts will be picked up at the school.

Please encourage your child to earn extra money over the next few weeks which they are willing to donate in order to make another child’s Christmas extra special. All donations can be made on our SchoolCash Online system.

If you have any questions please contact the school.  Thank you!


Join Us to Strengthen Catholic Education in Ontario

Catholic schools have been part of Ontario communities for over 170 years and play a vital role in the province by producing graduates who are collaborative contributors to the common good of society.
The Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) provides the provincial voice for elected Catholic school trustees to promote and protect publicly funded Catholic education. The OCSTA has launched a new campaign, called Together in Faith, to strengthen support for Catholic education in Ontario.
Parents are invited to sign up and join in strengthening our community of support for Catholic education in Ontario by visiting When you sign up, you will be provided with ongoing information about our Catholic system and will be counted among the many Ontarians who want to protect our incredible Catholic schools.
