News & Announcements


Since SGMES opened in 1912, learning has taken on many forms. While Covid-19 has changed some of "how" we teach and learn, the most important aspects have not changed; we remain committed to offering a rigorous and robust academic program, attending to the emotional and social needs of our students and being intentional about the ways we stay connected as a Catholic school family. 

During this time of uncertainty, SGMES has implemented various programs and procedures to to keep our staff, students and families safe. PLEASE SEE OUR VARIOUS PLANS HERE.

*We offer ONSITE and ONLINE LEARNING for students in Grades TK-2 and a well-rounded and meaningful distance learning program for students in 3rd-8th grade. Please visit for more information.

Thank you to the Shea Family Charities who chose to invest in San Gabriel Mission Elementary School by RENOVATiNG, REMODELING and MODERNIZING the entire elementary school campus! This project included upgrading doors, bathrooms, flooring and classroom lighting, installing new water fountains and bottle filling stations, enhancing classroom technology, remodeling three of our classrooms into STEM classrooms, repurposing of a classroom into a Makerspace workshop and much more!

Growing Up Dominican Award

Mission Elementary is a special place where our students learn about the pillars of Dominican spirituality that St. Dominic represented: prayer, community, study and service. In addition to the academic and spirit awards, the Growing Up Dominican Award t-shirt was given to students in each grade who have exemplified the Dominican Pillar of PRAYER and modeled them for their peers. We are so proud of each of them! Great job Spartans!

Taking the Earthquake Challenge

Mrs. Lopez challenged her STEM students to build a structure that can withstand the Earth's shaking. Students explored ideas of what makes a structure sound, what materials can be used (hypothetically speaking) to absorb shocks and the importance of applying sound engineering practices when building a structure in Southern California! Good job Spartans!

Girl Scout Troop 7121 Brings Christmas Spirit to Seniors!

Once again our Girl Scout Troop 7121 spread Christmas cheer in the San Gabriel Valley at several assisted living facilities and other community events. Over 250 pairs of socks were delivered to residents of these assisted living facilities along with caroling and performances. The girls also performed at a San Gabriel Women's Foundation event. These wonderful young ladies are a great example of how Mission Elementary Spartan's serve their community!

Preparing Our Hearts for Jesus!

Students had the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to prepare their hearts for the coming of Christ on Christmas. Thank you to our wonderful Pastoral Team for sharing this time with the children. 🙏 ⭐️

ChessMates comes to Mission Elementary!

Mission students now have the opportunity to learn the exciting game of strategy that is Chess! We are most excited to add ChessMates as an extracurricular activity for our students.

Renovation of Library Completed!

The renovation of our Spartan Library is complete thanks to the major efforts of Mrs.
Echeverria and her team of volunteers. The efforts include newly decorated walls, reading areas, a digital library card system and individualized library cards for the students. We are most grateful to our parent volunteers for this much needed renovation and for all the love and care that was put into the efforts. Now the students have an inviting area that encourages their love of reading.
