Welcome to St. Gregory School for the 2016-2017 academic year and welcome to our website! We look forward to greeting all the St. Gregory families and welcoming returning as well as new students to the school.
St. Gregory School is a JK to Grade 8 community school with approximately 150 students. We are located in Powassan, a small rural community. St. Joseph Church is the local parish.
Thank you for choosing Catholic Education. Our staff is blessed to be involved in the special role of being both your child’s educator and spiritual partner. We look forward to this journey together. At St. Gregory School, we strive to meet the individual needs of all students entrusted to our care within a nurturing Catholic learning environment. Our goal is to provide all students with a high quality education rooted in our Catholic faith to prepare all students for lifelong learning.
Our school currently has six regular classrooms. Our team of approximately 15 professionals offer a variety of teaching strategies linked to the Ontario curriculum. Our dedicated staff engages in professional development and initiatives linked to our School Improvement Plan and Ministry of Education initiatives.
Our school is equipped with a variety of technologies including mobile labs (both Apple and PC), SMART Boards, iPads and iPods, document cameras and data projectors. We have an active student body with many in-school activities as well as out-of-school excursions and school sporting events.
Parents and guardians are invited and encouraged to become involved in the school community. Your support, both in respect to your child’s education as well as in the growth and development of the community at large only forges and deepens the strength of our community.
I feel blessed to be returning to St. Gregory and look forward to meeting and working with each of you. Should you have any questions, concerns or comments please do not hesitate to contact me either by e-mail at email@example.com or at the school (705-724-3482).
