PRINCIPAL’S WELCOME MESSAGE
Welcome to St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School! Last year marked the birth of a new school community and it is still a happy, and exciting time and we grow together.
St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School is located on Barton Street in the extreme east end of the city of Hamilton in the area known as Winona - home of the famous "Winona Peach Festival". The Winona community has grown from a small rural community that has experienced much growth. We will continue to be a proud feeder school to Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School in Stoney Creek.
St. Gabriel School is a proud member of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish community. The school enjoys a wonderful relationship with the church and pastor Father Bill Trusz. With the partnership of the church and parents, our goal is to help students grow both academically and spiritually and together with parents, church and school we strive for excellence in all areas. We are thankful for the strong support of the Catholic School Council which helps us reach our goals. We welcome all parents to take the opportunity to participate in the Catholic School Council in any way possible as together we can build a new school community.
Our school motto is “Celebrating Faith, Family and Learning.” The St. Gabriel staff will be working hard to identify priorities in the various areas of the school so that we can set and meet high standards and help students reach their fullest potential. We all look forward to the challenge ahead and know that together we can have a tremendous impact on our students’ growth and development.
Yours in Catholic Education,
Mr. Mike Laskowski
