Hugs, smiles, and jumps for joy filled the halls of St. Gabriel’s for the first day of the school year. New and returning students alike were thrilled to be on campus to meet their teachers, make new friends, and see the classmates they missed so dearly over the summer.
The excitement accumulated in the gym first thing in the morning, as the entire community came together for the first all-school Morning Prayer service of the year. Students in Pre-kindergarten through eighth grade gathered with teachers, staff, and family to watch a beautiful video about treating the earth and all things on it with respect. Then it was time for prayer, singing, and even dancing!
It was a wonderful day to start not only the day off right but the 2010-2011 school year as well. With such enthusiasm from 4-year-olds to 60-year-olds, it’s bound to be a fruitful time for the St. Gabriel’s community to continue to love, learn, serve, and lead!
