While Catholic Schools Week was already two days short due to the weather, the staff and students at St. Gerard School made the most of it! Students collected over $1,800 in Pennies for Patients (the Lymphoma Society). On Thursday students participated in fun day (pre-5th grade), went to the Summit (6th grade) or went bowling at Royal Scot (7th and 8th grade). On Friday we topped it all off with an assembly. Alumni students Anthony Lottes and Matt Macksood came to share their stories of following your dreams and listening to the plan that God has for us. Anthony has followed his dream of playing music and now it is actually his career! Matt Macksood walked on the MSU football team only to go to the Rose Bowl and earn a scholarship. The assembly ended by playing Minute to Win It games. Students were chosen by turning in coupons indicating that they had read at least 15 mins for each coupon. Anthony and Matt stuck around and helped with the games! Congratulations to 3rd grader, Will Gardner, our first recipient of the “Minute to Win It” school trophy! Look for it in the trophy case next time you are in gym!
