Attention All SGGS Parents: You're invited! We just concluded our Divine Mercy for Moms Book Study. It was a wonderful experience to get together with other moms and share how the Lord is working in each of our lives. In a form of continuation of this support and fellowship, we would like to invite you all to participate in our December gatherings. Please join us for some much-needed downtime during the busyness of the holiday season for some coffee and doughnuts as we reflect on the real meaning of Christmas! We will share some ideas of how we can incorporate more spirituality and faith into our family as we prepare for the birth of our Savior. We will also have time to get to know other SGGS parents and share ways we can build a closer faith community with one another. Thursday, December 6 and 13 (after drop off 8am-9am) Location- TBA. Sign up here so we can plan! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094baaad2aa0fc1-coffee

    Saint Gregory the Great Catholic School is AdvancED accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is AdvancED accredited as a school system.

    AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their goal is not to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools improve.
    Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, AdvancED serves as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations.
