It was truly a wonderful Sunday here at Gesu. We had a wonderful turnout of families who are interested in joining our Gesu community. I want to thank the parents and students who helped show off the school and of course our teachers for all of their hard work to see that Open House was a success. Enrollment will continue right up until August! Be sure that you have turned in all the necessary paperwork to register for the 2017 – 2018 school year and if you have any questions be sure to call the school office! Thank you for trusting your children with us here at Gesu!
