HALTON FOOD FOR THOUGHT FUNDRAISER - Feeduary GoFundMe campaign. This campaign is designed to help raise awareness about the importance of student nutrition programs, as well as to help raise funds for two new programs in Halton schools in 2016/17. We are asking you, our dedicated St.Gabe's Family, to please help HFFT expand their reach by sharing this link with friends and family, liking this campaign on Facebook and/or giving them a shout out on Twitter. This campaign will run during the month of February and the more people they reach, the closer we will be to ensuring that no student goes hungry at school.
CROSS BOUNDARY & NON RESIDENT APPLICATIONS FOR 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR DUE AT THE OFFICE BY FEB. 15, 2016.  Please note that each request will be judged on its own merit. Parents will begin to receive response letters in mid-May. Parents who currently have cross boundary/non-resident status within our school must have the request renewed on an annual basis. The request for renewal should be submitted to the school office by February 15th, 2016. Requests received after this date may be reviewed based on exceptional circumstances.

 NO BOTTLED WATER - The HCDSB is asking parents, students and staff to voluntarily not bring bottled water to school. Instead, please use a re-usable container (No glass please). This follows the philosophy of reducing plastic waste, and promotes the human right that water should be free and accessible to all. Our school water is regularly tested and is safe to drink.

VOLUNTEERS play an integral role as partners in education at St. Gabriel School. Please visit our Volunteers page and learn about the different opportunities to help out. On our Volunteers page you will also find the Offence Declaration Form to complete.
