Distribution of Valentine's


Dear Parent/Guardians,

     On February 14th 2018, we will be celebrating Valentine’s day in your child’s classroom. If your child is preparing valentine’s to give out, we simply ask you to do the following to make it easier.

  1. Please have your child write:
                     To my friend
                      Love/From: __________________________ ( Your Child’s Name).
( As children are learning to recognize their own name as well as their friends to read, it is hard for us to help each child to deliver Valentines and help them read their name. We ask that you only have your child sign their name and follow this format.

2) Please do not bring in any special snacks or treats. We will be having special activities in lieu of treats that day. It is Ash Wednesday and we want to respect that it is a day of fast and respect. We will be distributing ashes and would not want to take away from its meaning as the start of Lent.


Many Thanks for your cooperation
Mme. McCann, Mrs. Bean, Mrs. Parnell, Mrs. Couch,   



Soles4Souls



The kindergarten classes are embarking on a special social justice project for our whole school community to participate in.  For the month of February ~ Kindness Month ~ the kindergarten students ask that our school help support Soles 4 Souls.  

Soles 4 Souls is a not for profit organization that takes unwanted shoes (sandals, runners, dress shoes) and fixes them like new for someone less fortunate who needs them.

THE KINDERS WANT YOU TO HELP SPREAD SOME LOVE!!!   This Valentine’s Day, the kindergarten students at St. Gabriel’s are asking all of their school community to come with a pair of shoes to donate to Soles 4 Souls.

Last year, students donated 1,048 pairs of shoes!  This year, when you are bringing in your Valentine’s, let’s fill other people’s hearts with kindness by donating a pair of used, unwanted shoes.  It’s that easy!!

HELP SPREAD SOME LOVE - Boxes will be set up in the front foyer for the month of February, until March Break.  

Thank you for your continued support and for helping the Kinders help make a difference for their community!

Sincerely,
    The Kinder Classes of St. Gabriel School
