Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at St. Gabriel CES!
As the NEW principal of St. Gabriel school, I look forward to building relationships with the community. Our school continues to grow, with enrolment exceeding 350 students. We have already added a new portable for this school year!
It is always our hope that as members of the St. Gabriel school community, we too are inspired to follow the example of St. Gabriel and live each day as “messengers of our Catholic faith”. St. Gabriel, was the Arch Angel who shared the “good news” with Mary that she would give birth to our Lord Jesus Christ.
At St. Gabriel CES, our focus on TEAM is key to the success of each student being able to strive to reach their full potential ACADEMICALLY, SPIRITUALLY, SOCIALLY AND ATHLETICALLY. Our TEAM consists of building a mutually supportive relationship between HOME, SCHOOL and PARISH – always keeping God and our faith central to everything that we do. By working together as a TEAM, your child(ren) will develop the necessary attitudes, values and self-concepts that will support their learning now and in the future.
At St. Gabriel, our focus continues to be “making R.O.K. Solid Choices by showing RESPECT, keeping Hands OFF and being KIND in our actions and words.”
We are part of the St. Mary of the Visitation Parish. Through the guidance of Father Freitas, our students will have many opportunities to continue to grow as faithful disciples of Jesus. There will be several masses and other liturgical celebrations held throughout the year, and parents/guardians and other family members are always welcome to join us.
The staff feel privileged to have the opportunity of teaching and learning with your child(ren) at St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary school.
Please know that we value your input and invite you to contact the school if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Mr. Jodie Schnarr
