Our Catholic Faith:
Father Rick, Chris and Jesse will be here on Tuesday, January 8th in the morning to bless all of our classroom doors as part of their annual Epiphany Blessing. We will host the Epiphany liturgy on Monday, January 14th at 1:00 pm in the gym. Mrs. Hannant's grade 1's and Mrs. Welburn's grade 5's will lead the liturgy.
We are hosting the second annual Student Retreat all day on Tuesday, January 15th. The theme is "Focus" and the retreat leaders are Pure Witness. There will also be several sessions offered by a variety of leaders/presenters. More information will follow closer to the date.
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 Fairness, and will be presented in daily prayer and a bulletin board display by Mrs. Bernard's grade 2's and Mrs. MacLeod's grade 5's. 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 Friday, February 1 at 9:00 am, in the gym.
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:
Kindergarten registration will take place on Tuesday, January 15th starting at 8:00 am.
