Students of St. Gabriel School also have the opportunity to learn and develop athletic skills in well-organized athletic programs. St. Gabriel School participates in the Diocesan leagues for boys' and girls' basketball and girls' volleyball. The teams begin in 3rd or 4th grade and are coached by parents with team practices scheduled in our school gym during evening hours. These sports programs not only engage the child in learning coordination, athletic skills and rules of play, but also promote physical fitness, equal participation, team work and school spirit.
In addition to Girl and Boy Scouts, the students are provided the opportunity to participate in a middle-school youth group. Additionally, service projects are integrated into the school calendar, such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Math-a-thon, Hoops for Hearts, and food, clothing, and toy drives for local assistance programs.
