Seventh grade students use the iPads (new) to study for their upcoming quiz on MacBeth (old). The iPads come from just part of the proceeds from last year’s auction. Looking forward to this year’s auction!
All of the second graders at St. Gerard School had a great time celebrating Apple Week. Some of the events from this week included putting together a delicious homemade applesauce recipe and visiting the Country Mill, where the children were able to see how apples grow and how cider is made. They even had the opportunity to pick their own apples right out of the orchard.
Did you know the month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary? Every year in celebration of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th) the 3rd grade students at St. Gerard School make their own rosaries. The beautiful colors and large size help in learning how to use the rosary and reflect on the mysteries. These rosaries are blessed by Fr. John, and then sent home to continue being used with their families. The 3rd graders love to walk with Mary through this beautiful prayer. We hope you are taking the time to do the same this month.

We are so proud of the students at St. Gerard! You can view the artistic talent that the students possess by visiting Mrs. Barber’s Art page. Each grade has an art gallery for you to view. As projects are completed, the galleries will be updated. Enjoy!
This year our school will center our year around the theme, “Christ Be Our Light”. At our opening school Mass, each classroom brought forth their light and professed their plan to be the light of Christ for others. Fr. John challenged us to make good on our word. He went to great lengths talking to our junior high students. Our 7th and 8th graders all promised in different ways to be good role models and he told them that if they followed through on their promise, it would be the best year ever!

This past spring St. Gerard School students joined the PTO, parish, athletic commission and adult women’s volleyball group to raise over $10,000 to have the gym floor redone this summer. The transformation is already unbelievable! Can’t wait for our students, staff and families to see the “makeover”.
