Our Catholic Faith:
Our first celebration following the holidays will be the Epiphany Liturgy held on Thursday, January 11th at 1:00 pm in the gym hosted by Mrs. Wiley's Grade 5/6's and Ms. Weber's Grade 4's.
Thank you to everyone who attended our annual Christmas Concert. The gym was packed for both performances and we appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedules to join us for the advent concert.
Our School Responsibility Plan:
Each month, as stated in our School Responsibility Plan, we will focus on one virtue to help our students develop a better sense of moral intelligence. This month's virtue is "Humility" and is presented in daily prayer and a bulletin board display by Mrs. Beitel's Kindergarten am class and Ms. Nicolson's Grade 8 class. Our "Guardian of the Month" presentations, to the student who best demonstrates that monthly virtue in the classroom and around the school, will be announced at our next Monthly Assembly on Thursday, January 25th in the gym at 9:00 am. All of the students who earn a "Guardian of the Month" recognition in the first half of the year will attend an activity/excursion in the afternoon with Mr. Fuchs and me in February as a "thank you" for showing such positive behavior around St. Gabriel School.
Our Communication with the Community:
Thank you for supporting the "Pies for Presents" fundraiser, which raised $985.65 towards gifts and food items for our Adopt-a-Family Hampers. The hampers were delivered to four families in two of our neighboring community schools. These events are part of our school goal, whereby staff and students are servant leaders who are proclaimers of our Catholic faith and demonstrate stewardship of time, treasure and talent through involvement in retreats, charitable donations, liturgies, service projects, Christian action project, etc. We truly appreciate your support in these endeavours.
On behalf of the staff, I want to extend warm wishes for the Christmas season. May you all have safe travels, joyous celebrations with friends and family, as well as time to relax and enjoy the holidays!
