Celebrating the 25th anniversary this year, one of our favorite fundraising events-The Walk-a-thon- has a new name and theme, “Color Walk”.
It’s time to get a little messy, have a good time with your family and help your school at the 2016 SGS Color Walk!
This fun-filled fundraiser is “For the Love of Our Children.” The Walk-a-thon Day is Friday, October 21st. All parents are welcome to attend. We are proud to announce, this year, our collaborative efforts will help raise money for campus fire sprinkler system upgrades. We would also like to purchase additional i-Pads for the lower grades.
Every year we also fund the St. Gregory the Great Scholarship for Teacher Enrichment Program (S.T.E.P.). In addition, they will help fund the 8th grade banquet (with 100% participation in the 8th grade.)
