Grade 2 Reconciliation

Students gathered in the Kieran chapel on March 5th to make their First Reconciliation with Father Doyle. This sacrament showed these students that God is love, and that in mercy, God is always ready to forgive – no matter the wrong. What an extraordinary gift!

 


100 Days of School

With passing 100 days of in-school learning, many classes chose to celebrate with various activities surrounding the number 100. The activities ranged from bringing in 100 of the same object to dressing as a 100-years-old person!


Academic Quiz Bowl

Upper School students did well in their third competition. Currently, SGS is in second place. Our last event is on April 21.


Stations of the Cross

Our first and seventh graders collaborated in observing and presenting the Stations of the Cross by artistically representing each Station and delivering the message of Christ, sacrifice, and passion during the Lenten season.


Saint Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day was full of fun activities and class parties. It was great seeing everyone embrace the holiday with their awesome green outfits. We’re very LUCKY to have such a great school of students!


School Play!

Over the past two months, our sixth and seventh graders have been preparing a production of some of the “York Mystery Plays.” The plays, having originally debuted in the Late Middle Ages, portray scenes from the Bible and encourage audiences to hold Christian values.

In our production, we used modern translations of Medieval English. Our set and costumes were also simple. Actors appear in all black, but accessorized with knitted scarfs – that they knitted themselves! Lastly, our set represents a medieval wagon or cart similar to those used 500 years ago. Thanks to Dr. Meyer for his guidance!


Upper School Humanities Projects

In fifth and sixth grade humanities, students have created topographical maps of Ancient Greece and replicas of Michelangelo’s frescoes from the Sistine Chapel.


Saint Gregory’s Reads

To promote a love of reading, Saint Gregory’s has challenged our students to read 20,000 collective minutes and to donate 1,000 gently used children’s books before Spring Break. Ever up to that challenge, our students are well on their way to meeting our goal!


Spirit Week

To celebrate our school spirit, students decorated the hallways and classrooms one day, wore our school colors the next day, and dressed-up as their favorite book character on the final day. Thanks to the SGS Parents’ Association for providing lunch and treats. Go Knights!


Welcoming a limited number of new students!

If you know a family who might be interested in the Saint Gregory’s community, please call the school. We are giving private tours and spots are filling up.


Happy Easter!
