A Note from the Principal

Dear families,

We hope your summers are off to a great start!  This will be the last e-blast until later this summer when we have more to announce about the 2018-2019 school year.  Have a wonderful, safe summer with your families!  Thank you again for a great school year!


*Please note that EduConnect will reopen for everyone on June 11th.  If you have an outstanding balance on your tuition or still owe any fees, grades will remain locked.  If you have an 8th grader, final transcripts will not be forward to his/her high school until all payments are made.

*First Communion pictures were delivered to the school office and are available to be picked up.  Summer office hours are irregular, so please call ahead 314-353-1229 to see if someone is in the office or email office@stgabschool.org to arrange a time to pick them up.

Have a safe and happy summer!

Mrs. Slattery

The Wallace Family will be hosting a USED UNIFORM EXTRAVAGANZA at their home on Wednesday, August 1 from 6 to 8 pm.  It is not a sale, as we are not charging money, though we will accept donations for the Support-A-Student Fund.  It is not exactly an exchange either, as you don’t need to bring a uniform to obtain one.  Anyone is welcome to donate uniform items that evening (or at any time) and take whatever they need.  Please call 314-614-9631 or email cmwallace75@yahoo.com with questions.
