Dear Parents,

In context of the tragic events that have recently occurred in Las Vegas, as well as events occurring within our local communities, we have included some resources to help guide parents in talking to their children about violence. Our aim is to help students feel safe and secure in their daily environments. Part of this comes from open communication and allowing children to express their concerns and ask questions.

Today (10/4) our school community will participate in a prayer service on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis was a peacemaker. Let us all pray for peace.

Soles for Catholic Education Walk

Join us in supporting Catholic education! There is still time to sign up for the 5th annual Soles for Catholic Education Walk.

It is a celebration of Catholic schools and community. Participating in this event helps to ensure that Catholic education remains affordable and accessible. Funds raised will remain right here at St. Gregory the Great.
 
The school is holding a competition between the classes this year. The classes with the most walk participants get a popcorn/movie party. Partner grades will compete against each other for participants. (8th vs 7th, 6th vs 5th, etc.)
There is a now $10 registration fee and you will be able to pick up your walk t-shirt at Mount Mary University.
 
For more information on the walk and to register, please the Soles for Catholic Education website.

Dear Parents,

We would like to thank all the parents who have volunteered for Boo Bash. At this time, we are still looking for more parents to volunteer to create and run a game or parents who are willing to help relieve parent volunteers to provide them a break to spend time with their family during the event.

Seventh and 8th grade students are encouraged to volunteer with the games and haunted house. All student volunteers must be accompanied by an adult during the event. A parent will be available to supervise during haunted house set up. A signed permission slip must be submitted for each student volunteer.

We are also asking for candy donations for this event. If you are able to donate, please send to the school office attention: Boo Bash. 

More information on volunteer arrival times to follow.
