October is here and we are getting ready to celebrate Halloween together again at last. Our Halloween Dance Party is happening on Friday, October 21st. All families of St. Gerard School are welcome.

The grade 8 class has begun their study of prehistory in social studies. We are examining the lives of some of our earliest human ancestors.

We have begun a unit in French, in which we explore the concept of investigation through examining some mysteries, which need solving.

Picture day will be upon us soon. Remember to wear a clean and fresh uniform, and make yourself look your best on Tuesday, October 25th.
