Although many exciting days are ahead of us prior to summer holiday, faculty and staff are eagerly anticipating the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year. Our preparations are ongoing as we continue our work to achieve the mission of St. Gabriel’s Catholic School. Since opening in 1999, the School has built an impressive record. Even so, with our current students, faculty, facilities, and families, we can say with confidence that the best days of St. Gabriel’s are yet to come.
On the WhippleHill Resource Board, you will find important information to help you prepare for next year including: uniform information, fall sports registration, 2016-2017 school calendar, etc. Let me highlight a few items:
- The first day of school is Wednesday, August 17 2016
- The last day of school is Friday, May 26 2017 (Memorial Day Weekend)
- Jumpers will be introduced as part of the uniform for lower school girls
- Our 7/8 tackle football team will be comprised of St. Gabriel’s students only
Please take the time to look through the attachments. If you have any questions, please let us know. The partnership between the School and families is the sacred core of our St. Gabriel’s. It is a partnership built on mutual respect, abiding affection, and deep faith. We share a love for our children. Through these relationships, we learn essential aspects of our students and can more effectively tailor our teaching to meet their needs.
Thank you for entrusting St. Gabriel’s with the education of your children.
