Under the direction of Ms. Emily Barrett, the St. Gregory Children’s Choir performed at the annual Christmas on Las Olas celebration on December 3rd to kick off the holiday season. They also brought joy to many patients singing for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital patients; the residents at the 5 Star Premiere Residence; and to the residents at West Broward Rehab Center. We commend these children’s dedication and talent; they bring so much joy to our school masses and graciously give their time and talents to those who cannot get out to enjoy the sounds of the season.
On December 14, a team of 7th and 8th grade “mathletes” participated in the 42nd Annual Sister Joan Norton Math Competition at St.Thomas Aquinas High School. St. Gregory School brought home numerous awards, including 2nd place overall. 17 Catholic Schools participated this year.

Last week students from our after school dance program (Creative Dance Studio under the direction of Ms. Jessica Canino) were invited to dance in Walt Disney World’s “Holiday Spectacular Parade”. Our fifty-two dancers joined over 400 other performers as they shared their magic before thousands of guest at the Magic Kingdom. Thirty-five of the girls were also invited to participate in the taping of the ABC-TV Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. Be sure to tune in (or set your DVR to record!) on Christmas morning to see our girls in the opening act with Neil Patrick Harris and hundreds of Disney characters, singers and dancers!
