Gowns will be given to students on the day of the ceremony and they must be returned immediately after the ceremony. Please go to “Cash On Line” to pay for the gown rental.

Parent/ Guardian Signature Date
Dear Parents/ Guardians,
It has come to our attention that some students at St. Gabriel School are planning a student walkout on Thursday, April 4, 2019 protesting the provincial government’s recent changes to education. This walkout is occurring at some schools across the region, and indeed across many boards. Information and messages are being circulated on social media, email and web sites. These planned student walkouts are not Board/School sanctioned events.
The Waterloo Catholic District School Board values the students’ voice, and a vision of the learner that includes what it means to be a responsible citizen, a reflective thinker, and a discerning believer. Our school administration and office staff will follow regular attendance/ safe arrival procedures and report the missed class(es) to the parent/ guardian as soon as possible. Our school staff will not be supervising students who participate in the protest as it remains a regular school day.
We sincerely appreciate your partnership in the education of your children. Our priority is to support the learning and well-being of students while maintaining a safe environment.
Please direct any questions/ concerns to the main office.
R. Sodaro, Principal
