A Note from the Principal


Confidential student information is not reported on this web version of the e-Blast. See the parent email for the week for additional details.

Dear families,

It is hard to believe we have entered our last month of the school year.  Along with the great weather, we have a lot to celebrate in the coming weeks.  From First Communion for our second graders this weekend to graduation for our eighth graders at the end of the month, and many special events in between, it will be a fun and busy month.  Please be sure to keep an eye on the calendar and join us for as many events as you are able.


Congratulations to two of our students for winning a gold ribbon for a perfect score at the Bellarmine Speech Meet this weekend.  Congratulations to two of our students for winning blue ribbons.  You represented our school well and should be very proud of your efforts!  We also want to thank Ms. Seper and Mrs. Shaver-Krus for all of their help coaching and preparing our students for Bellarmine Speech this year.

Have a great afternoon!

Mrs. Slattery

St. Gabriel Board Of Education Election for 2018

Our community is fortunate to have seven applicants for open positions on the Board of Education.  The Board wishes to thank all applicants for their interest in the Board and willingness to serve in this capacity.  There are three elected positions open each year.  Msgr. Shamleffer appoints a fourth person to the board each year.

Please take the time to review the candidates, learn about their reasons for interest and how they can contribute to the Board of Education.

You may vote for three candidates.  Please only vote ONE time – either online (see link in eblast/below) OR on a paper ballot (see attached.)  Paper copies will also be available in the church bulletin and sent home in the Wednesday folder on April 18.  Paper ballots can be submitted in the weekend offertory, the rectory, or to the school office (in envelope labeled “Board of Education Ballot”.)
