Welcome to the Parent Paws Newsletter!

From The Principal

We are in the final stretch of the school year with one week left, followed by final exams. It is all coming so quickly. It is time to ensure your student has their work all caught up and turned in as we near the finish of another successful school year. Freshman thru sophomore finals are May 23rd, 24th and 25th. View the full finals schedule.

As we approach our summer break, please make sure you have completed your registration for next year. As stated before, everything is online this year on our new student information website called FACTS. If you have finished your registration but are still receiving emails from us, please log back in and double check to make sure you have hit the submit button. It requires us to do that before your registration is complete. If you haven’t started this process yet, I ask that you do so right away. I am not able to guarantee your student the classes they selected for next year if you aren’t currently registered. If there is a tuition question or concern or even questions about your registration fee, please contact Kristin Dohse in our Business Office or email her at dohse@gcgmail.org. View instructions on how to register on FACTS.

About Gross Catholic

Gross Catholic, a co-educational, college preparatory high school, began its proud heritage of academic excellence rooted in the Marianist tradition in 1968. We consider ourselves one of the best Catholic schools in Omaha, Bellevue, and Papillion. The school motto Dux Esto (“Be a Leader”) is at the core of its extraordinary mission, innovative spirit, and fundamental values. The school offers a challenging environment and outstanding quality of life, both in academics and co-curricular activities, with a strong focus on STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) education. The spirit of Christian service and giving back is part of everything the school does. Gross Catholic’s top-tier status is reflected in its talented faculty, staff, and coaches who take great pride in seeing virtually every graduate head to college, often to the most prestigious domestic and international universities and service academies. Together with families and alumni, Gross Catholic forges relationships for a lifetime, helping to ready the next generation to be exemplary, principled leaders of the world.
