Dear St. Gregory Families,

Welcome to the new school year! It doesn’t seem possible that the summer could be coming to an end, yet here we are with a new school year ready to begin. I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer.

Your Family Association has several exciting things in the works. Please mark youor calendar for these two back to school events:

o Back-to-School Ice Cream Social, August 9, 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Continuing a new FA tradition, this is a great way for students and families to see each other again and reconnect after the summer! Please see the enclosed flyer with all the details.
o Family Association Welcome & Volunteer Sign Up Coffee, Tuesday, August 16, 8 am in the school cafeteria. We encourage all of you to come and get involved!

The purpose of the FA is to support the mission of St. Gregory. We strive to enhance the school experience for the entire school community. Our main focus is to foster school spirit and community participation. Each family is automatically a member of the Family Association. Dues are $75.00 per family and are billed through your student account in the beginning of the year. Every student benefits from this financial commitment we all incur together.

Some of the activities your Family Association has planned this year include:
o Family events such as the Back-to-School Ice Cream Social and Spring BBQ
o Pot lucks, parties and community building activities per grade
o Athletic program support with Homecoming activities, launch of a new Booster Club, end of season team parties
o Fine Arts performance support & refreshments
o Staff appreciation luncheons and treats
o The Spring ‘SIP for St. Gregory’ Event
o Annual Fund call-a-thons & support
o Tax Credit call-a-thons & support
o Recruitment & retention events
o School apparel & merchandise sales
o Shop & Give Program
o Student events such as MS Rome Day & birthday celebrations, US Winter Formal & Prom
o Grad Night for seniors
o Supporting staff in college counseling, the library, lunchroom or on campus as needed
o Helping to plan special academic events throughout the year

Throughout the year, please visit the Family Association section of the school website at We will be updating the Family Association webpages this Fall to provide you with current information on volunteer opportunities and events. We will also communicate through the eView you receive each week.
