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.

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.
