To help defray the expenses of our Sham-Block 2019, the planning committee will be printing an Ad Book.  Each of the hundreds of guests in attendance will receive a copy of the Ad Book.  This is a great opportunity to recognize your loved ones, acknowledge your St. Gabriel classmates and Canaryville neighbors, or to simply proclaim a few words of kindness and support for the St. Gabriel community.

If you are interested in placing an ad in our Sham-Block 2019 Ad Book, please complete the order form provided in the school newsletter.  With your order form, please attach any graphics or copy that you would like to include in your ad.  Graphics can be emailed to: or dropped off at school.
