LENTEN PROJECT

posted Feb 24, 2020, 9:57 AM by Cathy O'Brien - OA   [ updated Feb 24, 2020, 9:59 AM ]


North of 60 Project


Dear St. Gabriel Community, 


Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 26th, 2020. In the spirit of Alms Giving, the families, students and staff of St. Gabriel School are asked to help support the North of 60 Project this Lenten Season.  The North of 60 is an organization that is dedicated to helping Canada’s most northern communities by sending non perishable food items by large sea containers.


 Items collected by students at St. Gabriel will directly help and support the families living in the community of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.  Thank you so much for helping our school community support the families of Rankin Inlet by collecting the following items:


Kindergarten and grade 1: 

454g bags of spaghetti, rotini, small bow tie and elbow macaroni


Grades 2-6: 

900g bags of spaghetti, rotini, small bow tie and elbow macaroni


↠ Expiry dates must be 2021 or later on each package to ensure freshness.↞


Our school goal is to collect ONE HUNDRED 454g bags and THREE HUNDRED 900g bags of pasta!

We believe in  the importance of educating all our students about Canada’s Indigenous peoples and providing opportunities for helping others in need. 


Thank you for your continued support helping St. Gabriel to gather and share!


God Bless!

Advent Project and Mitten Tree - December 2nd - 11th

posted Dec 4, 2019, 10:48 AM by Cathy O'Brien - OA   [ updated Dec 4, 2019, 10:49 AM ]

ADVENT PROJECT

The Advent season has arrived and Christmas is just around the corner.  Each of the classes at St Gabriel School will be involved in our Advent project to help those in need.  Each class, from Kindergarten through grade six, will contribute to allow us to prepare a “hamper” for needy families from our adopted school, St Elizabeth.

Each student is being asked to bring in a specific item for the food hamper (your child’s classroom teacher will provide this information).  Additionally, a minimum donation of $2.00 for the family would also be most appreciated. Monies collected will go towards the purchase of a grocery store gift card for each family, so the family can purchase a turkey and fresh fruit and vegetables.

We encourage the students to complete a chore at home to earn their own money, so that they experience the gift of giving.  We will be collecting the hamper items and money from Monday, December 2nd until Wednesday, December 11th.


MITTEN TREE

Advent calls us to share the light with others through our loving deeds.  At St Gabriel we will share our light with others by decorating our Hat and Mitten Tree.  There is a tree in the front foyer and it is our hat and mitten tree. We are looking to cover the tree with new hats, mittens, scarves and gloves.  All donations will be given to children in our partner school St Elizabeth and other schools in our school board where there are children who are in need of warm winter clothing.  Thank you for your ongoing support of our efforts to help others in our community.

Parent Instruction for booking Parent Teacher Interviews

St Gabriel Catholic School

Electronic Sign Up for Parent Teacher Interviews for Thursday November 14th, 2019

4:00-4:50 p.m and 6:00-8:00 p.m.

 

This year St Gabriel is once again using an on-line system for booking parent teacher interviews using Google forms.

Please go to the school website (gab.ocsb.ca), under Announcements on the home page, find Parent Teacher Interviews and click on the link for this document.  Click on the teacher's name and the link will take you to the booking form for that teacher. Be sure to choose the correct link. Out of courtesy to other parents, please only book one time slot per teacher. 

Please Note:  the online system will be available from Monday, November 4th at 9:00 am until Monday, November 11th at 3:00 pm.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. O'Brien.

If your child is in grade 4, 5, or 6, your child may have more than one English teacher.  One English teacher might teach your child science and technology, health and physical education, and the arts, and another English teacher might teach your child mathematics, language arts, and religion.  Due to limited spots available, please only book an interview with the English teacher who teaches your child mathematics and language.  

If your child is in Kindergarten, only book an interview with your child’s homeroom teacher and Early Childhood Educator.

Please note:  Time slots will fill up fast.  If you are not able to book a time to see your child’s teacher, please call the school or write a note in your child’s agenda to arrange for another time to discuss your child’s progress.

Thank you for your continued support,

Maria Richichi
