We have had such a good beginning to this school year. We are so blest here at St. Gabriel that in spite of the heat outside, our classrooms were cool. And we have to be thankful for the really wonderful summer weather we had this year. So, that the couple of days of extreme heat, while being uncomfortable, were hardly worth complaining about.
Also, the excellent beginning to the school year was due to brilliant students and sterling faculty and staff!
Welcome to the New School Year
August 19, 2014
Yesterday was a wonderful beginning of the school year! To me the beginning of a school year is more significant than January 1st, probably because I’m an educator. But I think that the first day of school is more important to our students than January 1st, also.
