Farm Bureau Essay Contest Winners!

FarmBureau
Each year our 8th graders take part in Farm Bureau’s Essay Contest. This year the theme involved writing about a hero in their lives. Congratulations to Natalie Endres, Bri Haarer and Audrey Morris for placing in this year’s competition. Bri’s essay (pictured in the middle) will move on to the next level where she will compete against other 8th graders in Michigan! Natalie Endres (pictured on left) also is St. Gerard School’s winner in the National Geographic Geography Bee. Natalie will travel to Mt. Pleasant in the next few weeks to compete on a state level as well. Such talented, hard working students!

St. Gerard School teachers and staff joined “friendly” forces in a game of floor hockey to help raise some money for our favorite sixty 8th graders! Before it was all said and done, the 8th graders were the recipients of #1,358.07 toward their trip to Washington DC. Special thanks to Father John for the body block he did while in goal!

Sixth Graders Make Black History Come to Life!

Catholic Schools Week provided our school a chance to celebrate all that we have! From singing with Brian Flynn, talent shows, DARE graduation, teachers switching, exercising, reading, praying, competing, and attending Mass, we barely missed “Fun Day”! (well…)
Special thanks to Officer Kim (distinguished alumni) for coming to talk about her experience at St. Gerard School and how it laid the foundation for what was to come.

School is closed on Friday, February 20th due to extreme temperatures.

An Hour of Code at St. Gerard

During their computer class they learn many aspects of using technology but last week they even learned to code!
This past week a few of our teachers learned to code and what do teachers do when they learn something new? Teach it to their students. What a neat skill!

Christmas Program 2014

Christmas Program

The students of St. Gerard School performed the Legend of the Christmas King during December to celebrate the birth of Jesus. 18 Junior high students took part in acting out the play of how a young boy discovers the true meaning of Christmas and how to live like Jesus. Each grade level took part by singing a song. Students truly gave a Christmas gift to the community by performing this powerful story.

Pictured is the cast of the play.
