Your Principal

John Barfoot, Principal, St. Gabriel School

Welcome to a new school year. We have been busy replacing resources lost in the wildfire and we are now in good shape. Staff and students have settled in and it is shaping up to be a great year at St. Gabriel School

I believe that children will be more successful in school when the school and the parents are working together. Parents are welcome in our building at any time, and are encouraged to volunteer in classrooms and with other school programs and outings. Please check in at the office when you arrive.

Parents are encouraged to join our parent council which meets once a month. We ask each family to read with their child nightly and to assist with any other homework your child brings home. Please feel free to contact me at the school or by calling 780-799-5745  or e-mail me at for information or to express a concern.
