This week, we light the second purple candle on the
Advent Wreath, symbolizing peace.
We would like to thank all the parents and students who have contributed a food item and $2 donation to the Christmas hamper. We will continue to collect food items and donations until Monday, December 18th, so please see the previous post to find out what item your class should donate. These hampers will go to directly help people in our community and at our sister school, St. Elizabeth. Thank you for showing what a loving and caring community we are here at St. Gabriel.
Last Friday, we had a wonderful time at Linda Jamieson's production of The Nutcracker. The students were dressed up and had a spectacular time watching Tchaikovsky's ballet. The dancing was graceful, the costumes were colourful, and the music was enchanting. Thank you parents for letting your children experience such a timeless classic.
If your child is in Mr. Graitson's or Mrs. Isaac's class, you will know that we have been rehearsing together for several weeks for our upcoming Christmas concert at the Symphony Retirement Home. A permission form went home last week and it must be signed and returned by Friday, December 15th.
If you are leaving after this week to go on an early Christmas break, please let your teacher know in advance so they can plan accordingly.

3D Shapes are made up of 2D shapes. When we use a bunch of 2D shapes to make a 3D shape, it's called a net.
1. What 2D shapes are used to make a cube? How many of them do you need?
2. What 2D shapes are used to make this pyramid? How many of each shape do you need?
