From the Principal's Desk

May 1, 2014

Dear Parents and Friends,

Beginning the last month of a school year is always exciting.  It is a time when we look at all of our accomplishments and then begin to start anew with thoughts of next year.  We have had a wonderful school year and while this is also a time for saying goodbye to our 8th graders and others, we look forward to meeting a new group of children and beginning again. 

New for us next year will be the implementation of the Rosetta Stone to all grade levels.   Students in grades K through 5 will be continuing their instruction of the Spanish language.  Students in grades 6 through 8 will have the opportunity to choose the language that they want to learn.  Innovation is one of our core standards and this will allow us to be on the cutting edge of a new adventure in educating students in the area of foreign languages.  We will be the first school in the Louisville area that will be piloting such a program for all ages.  Teachers and assistants will also have the advantage of being able to learn this with the children.  The beauty of this program is that a student will be able to access their account from home or any device that picks up the internet and move at a faster pace, if wanted.  Because of this new program, we will be saying goodbye to Mr. White.  Mr. White will be teaching music next year at St. Bernard.

For several years, Mrs. Cornwell has been going to school to receive her math certification.  As you may know, Mrs. Cornwell has been tutoring students here for many years.  Next year, she will move out of the gym and into the classroom.  Mrs. Rastocny will be retiring at the end of this year and Mrs. Cornwell will become the fourth grade math and religion teacher.  Mrs. Rastocny has given this school almost forty years of ministry.  We wish her happy adventures and amazing experiences as she enjoys the time with family and friends.

Please wish us great travel and safety as Fr. John, Mrs. Stivers, several teachers and I visit Washington, D. C. with the 8th graders.  If any of you have ever seen me talk about this trip at a meeting, you know that I am very excited about this.  I always enjoy being with the students their last few days as a St. Gabriel student.  I always hope that the experience is one that they will never forget.  

Until next month, I wish all of you warm spring days that we all are in need of after a brutally long winter.  Take care.

Sincerely,

PamHuelsman

Ten Marks Opportunity . . .

Let's say goodbye to summer learning loss in math. While not a requirement, it is certainly an opportunity for students to keep their math skills sharp over the summer. Ten Marks is offering their Summer Math Program to families for free this year.This was formerly a $40 product.

Starting April 15, 2014, parents can sign up at http://summer.tenmarks.com using the Summer Access Code.

ST. Gabriel's Summer Access Code is: S14SGS1502

Just before summer break, parents will receive an email to get started.

Students will take a diagnostic assessment which will create a personalized curriculum for the summer.

At the end of the summer, we ask that parents who have used the program print out a final report on atudent progress over the summer. We would like to reward those students who have used the program.

St. Gabriel Parish Survey . . .

St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church will be conducting a survey regarding the development of a five year strategic plan for the parish.  This survey will be available for completion online or on paper from June 7- June 29.  The SurveyMonkey questionnaire will “go live” on the 7th and close on the 29th of June.  Paper copies will be available as well at the end of Masses for these three weekends.  Additional information will be forthcoming.  Please spread the word to any parishioners you may know.  Share on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or any other digital means you may have.  Your prayerful consideration and thoughtful input will be greatly appreciated!

Prayer of St. Gabriel

(Written by St. Gabriel Student Council Members)

O heavenly Father, please bless the students, staff and faculty of St. Gabriel. Please grant the children of our school the gift of spiritual, academic, social and emotional education. Please help us to continue to work together as a Christian family. Please allow us to build our Catholic identity, and continue the rich history and heritage of our Catholic Education. May we accept the differences of everyone's unique needs, talents and abilities. May we reflect the images of Jesus by living the "Spirit of St. Gabriel" In your name, our Lord, we pray. Amen
