Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is Jan. 29 – Feb. 3. The annual national celebration focuses attention on the good work done by the nation’s Catholic Schools. St. Gregory’s theme for the 2016-2017 school year is “Stay Connected.” In an effort to “stay connected” with the community, St. Gregory students and families will participate in a “Prince II Kings” service campaign during CSW. This non-profit organization provides around the clock (24/7) assistance, including free mentoring and educational support to at-risk youths within the inner city. During CSW, students can help each day by bringing items which will benefit this organization. This collection will enable St. Gregory to provide much needed items to this organization.
The week’s schedule is as follows:
MONDAY 1/30 Used sporting equipment, (football, basketball, tennis, soccer, baseball)
TUESDAY 1/31 School supplies, (composition books, binders, folders, paper)
WEDNESDAY 2/1 Hygiene items, (mouthwash, deodorant, toothpaste, soap, socks, sanitizer)
THURSDAY 2/2 Books (Autobiography- History)
FRIDAY 2/3 Baby supplies, (diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, baby lotion, bibs, pacifiers)
Parish families are also welcome to participate by dropping off items (in the blue bins) located in front of the school office during Catholic Schools Week. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support. We look forward to a fantastic Catholic Schools Week!
