It is the most wonderful time of the year!!! There is a ton of excitement and the students cannot wait until Christmas (and I guess vacation too!). I hope you will all join us this Wednesday for our Christmas Program! There are two programs, one that will begin at 1:00 PM and the other at 7:00 PM. Both performances will take place at Gesu Church. It promises to put all of us in the Christmas spirit. There will be a 2-hour delay on Thursday, December 15th. The school will open at 9:40 AM and students must be in the building by 10:00 AM. I also want to be the first to wish you a Happy New Year 2017!!! From the entire Gesu School and Parish Family…I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
I am excited to announce our new 8th Grade Ambassadors. These students serve Gesu in a variety of ways throughout the school year. I know they will be wonderful role models for all our students. Congratulations to Sierra, Ameyah, Jocelyn, DeMiyah, Maya, Juliani.
Thank you to everyone who has gone through Virtus to sign up to volunteer here at Gesu. If you have questions, please be sure to call the school office at 419-536-5634.
Congratulations to our Quiz Bowl Team! The season concluded this past week. Our team went 7 – 3 this year, finishing in 2nd Place! Mrs. Bossenbroek did a wonderful job preparing our Middle School Students. St. Francis Academy finished in 1st place and the other schools in our competition were Regina Coeli, St. Pius, and Blessed Sacrament. This continues the winning success of our Quiz Bowl Team the past 10 years. We are all so proud of their academic success and are already excited for next year! Congratulations to the following students who once again showed everyone in the area, Gesu has great academic students! Eric, Katie, Emma, Erin, Nico, Morgan.
Good luck to all of our Gesu (or combination of) teams this winter season. It has already been an exciting season for some of our teams who have started! Please feel free to share scores and pictures with me and we can highlight our student athletes! Congratulations to 7th grader, John, who hit a game winning 3- pointer to win a game for Gesu last weekend as time expired! It was exciting and hopefully a sign of great sportsmanship and success for all of our Gesu basketball teams this year! Also, our 5th grade boys team is 2-0, with a score of 22-3 on Saturday, December 10th against St. Joe’s Sylvania.
Gesu’s text and email system is up and running. If you are not receiving texts or emails, please contact the school and we will make sure you are in the system correctly. I hope everyone enjoyed their first snow day this year!!!!!!!
