Welcome to the Eighth Grade Class of 2016 and Families!

This is an important time for the 8th grade parents and students as they look at everything the high schools have to offer.  Check out the high school websites for the testing and open house dates.  High School Night at GSC is Oct. 22, 2015 at 6:30 PM.

A School Mass to celebrate the new year will involve the eighth grade as cantors, readers and Offertory gift presenters.  Mass is Friday, Sept. 18, 2015 at 9:30 am.

The eighth grade students got together with their first grade buddies this week.  They used the iPads and the Sock Puppet App to make a puppet show.  Next week the buddies will watch the puppet shows on the Smart Boards.

The World Meeting of Families 2015 in Philadelphia was a great success.  Pope Francis asked us to pray for him.  His name is on our prayer board, and the 8th grade pray for Pope Francis and his intentions each day.
