Hello StG Family,
Welcome to our Required Summer Reading Program! Each StG Charger is to read 2 assigned books---but hopefully, they will read many, many, many more books this summer to keep their brain from getting mushy, to go on GREAT adventures, and to expand their knowledge! Students in 4th through 8th grade have a choice of 3 novels, but they must choose 2 to read. (Seriously, I am hoping they read all 3!).
Each student is responsible for 2 projects. There is a different project for each title. Students should complete these projects and have them ready to turn in the first week of school next year. Each project will count as a homework grade for the first quarter.
In addition, students in 2nd through 8th grade will need to take the Accelerated Reader quizzes for both novels within the first 2 weeks of school. Teachers will take their classes to the computer labs to take the Star Reading Test and the Star Math Tests. During this time, students may also take the AR quizzes for the summer reading novels.
Upper Unit students will also take a written test on the two novels they choose to read, during the first 2 weeks of school.
We all know that reading strengthens our mind, increases our vocabulary, and helps us learn, learn, learn, and learn some more.
Some children may need assistance with reading their novels. Please add time to your summer schedule to help your children, and share those precious moments where you read together--- because they grow up and go away too soon.
Questions regarding Pk4 to 5th grade reading may be emailed to Mrs. Newman-Caro (StG Librarian) email@example.com. , Mrs. Margaret Moreno (SFA/Reading Specialist) firstname.lastname@example.org, or Ms. Sandra Rosales (SFA/Academic Interventionist) email@example.com.
Questions regarding Upper Unit (6th-8th) reading may be emailed to Mrs. Suzette Gimbel (UU Literature Teacher) firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a blessed summer and Happy Reading to All!
-in my prayers,
Dear St. Gregory the Great Community and Prospective Families,
I welcome you to St. Gregory the Great Catholic School (StG) and hope you will not only take the time to explore our website, but visit our school in person. Choosing a Catholic education for your children is a major decision and a tremendous sacrifice. At St. Gregory the Great, we not only appreciate that sacrifice, but we appreciate you very much. When visiting StG, you will have the opportunity to experience the warm and caring environment where the focus is educating the whole child. St. Gregory the Great is not merely a school, it is a loving family where students, teachers, parents, grandparents, and many others work together to support our mission which states, “We will nurture in our children & one another, spiritual, personal, & academic growth through prayer & Christ-like service”.
StG is truly a special place and it was with great pleasure that I stepped into the role of Principal at the start of the 2015-2016 academic year. In a very short time, our school has experienced tremendous growth and I am looking forward to continuing that progress in the coming years. We have seen great growth in our academic offerings, technology programs, security initiatives, facilities projects and in our school branding. We have also cultivated excellence in teaching practices across grade levels by developing programs that ensure our students are succeeding academically, while developing socially, personally, and spiritually. We have added an Academic Interventionist to our staff and focused on serving the needs of all students. GREAT things are happening every day at StG and I feel extremely honored and blessed to be a part of this growing community.
I urge you to consider St. Gregory the Great for your children. Our low student to teacher ratios affords our teachers the opportunity to provide more individualized and engaging instruction to our students, as well as to focus on all areas of development, including the social, emotional, and spiritual. Additionally, our students form closer bonds with each other that go beyond their own age groups and extend beyond their time at StG. At StG it is a privilege for the faculty and I to partner with each of you as we support the growth and development of each of your children.
If you are considering a Catholic school that will continue to nurture your family’s faith and spirituality, provide you with a rigorous curriculum, and also give you a true sense of belonging, then St. Gregory the Great is the place for you.
