Eighth grade students shared their faith with the residents of St. Joseph Villa in Flourtown.  Students held a Thanksgiving Prayer Service for the Sisters of St. Joseph and lay residents of the Villa.  After our prayer service, the students visited with residents who shared some of their experiences from their teaching days.

Thank you veterans and current military personnel.  Thank you for your service to our country!  To honor Veterans Day, grade 8 students wrote thank you letters to veterans and members of the military to thank them for their service.  Students wrote to family and friends who have served or are serving in the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps and Navy.

 Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 13th after school from 3 to 7:30 PM and Friday, Nov. 14th from 7:30 to 11:30 AM.  Eighth grade students have High School Universal Visitation day on Nov. 13th.  School is closed for all students on Friday, Nov. 14th for Parent/Teacher Conferences.

The 8th grade is putting together the Story Time Basket for the Christmas Bazaar.  We need donations of books for children of all ages.  All proceeds come back to GSC.
