Nativity Play Rehearsals:  Practices continue Sundays Dec. 21st and 28th immediately after the 10:00 am service.

Family and Church School

We are looking for Native American props and costumes for our Nativity Play! Items like arrow quivers, buckskins, Indian Halloween costumes, Native jewelry (nothing valuable), Native baskets, and anything that would fit into that theme are needed. Please mark items with your name and leave them in large classroom #2 if you can lend them.

Starting January 21st  our playgroup for young children and their parents and caregivers will move to Wednesdays at 10:30 am. Heather Grossklaus will be our new playgroup coordinator.  In January the preschool is going to welcome children from the playgroup into the classroom for 20 minutes of big buddy/little buddy time. You don’t have to be a church member to join in- everyone is welcome and we are building a wonderful community this way!



Our preschool is open! We will continue to accept students throughout the school year so don’t stop recommending St. Gabriel Episcopal School to family, friends and neighbors!
