05-01-2019Family Folder

Greetings St. Gregory School Families,

We are nearing the end of an incredible school year, so this will be my last family folder letter! This month will go by quickly and before you know it everyone will be on summer vacation. We have a lot going on during this last month of school.

Our 5th and 6th graders just came back from an exciting field trip to Camp Kon-O-Kwee; I thoroughly enjoyed the archery! In May, our 7th and 8th graders will venture out on their big field trip (location still to be determined). May Crowning will be on the 17th at 1:15pm in the church; this is a beautiful event venerating the Blessed Mother. The Kindergarten class will graduate on June 5th and our 8th graders will be graduating on the 8th. I want to say congratulations to all of our graduates! I also want to congratulate all of the kids who will receive their First Holy Communion this month. Finally, many students will participate at PJAS at Penn State with Mr. Dunker on May 20th. The Drama Play is May 9th at 1:30 and 7:00pm. Thank you to Mrs. Garcia, Aaron Sutton, Kelsey Smith, Mak Kirish, and Maddie Fiedler for their hard work with the students. Additionally, the Band concert takes place on the 16th. Please keep everyone in your prayers during this exciting time. I also have some exciting news: Baby Corcoran may be arriving sooner than expected! We are thrilled for the Corcoran family. I will be hiring a substitute teacher for 1st grade mid-May to finish out the year. I will also be hiring a long-term substitute for the 2019-2020 school year while Mrs. Corcoran is on maternity leave. Say prayers that the Holy Spirit sends me excellent candidates!
