The Battle for the Holy Grail spirit game is scheduled for Thursday, January 27 at Northwest Christian HS. This year, our ASB leaders choose the theme “Minions” (from the movie Despicable Me) and have already begun the planning process for what that will look like. We will be putting together spirit packs for Upper School students, and all members of the SGS community have the opportunity to order our themed T-shirts for the event. There are two t-shirt options this year -- one with the Minion figure on the front and the other has a plain yellow front if you are interested in wearing your own overalls!
For those interested in ordering shirts, please use the following link: Holy Grail T-Shirt Online Store. The online store will close at midnight on Monday, Jan. 10, so get your orders in early!
Social Emotional Learning, or SEL, is the framework that helps children and young adults learn critical skills for everyday success. Parents and family at home play a huge role in supporting their children’s social and emotional needs.
Saint George’s Center for Family Engagement is pleased to offer an opportunity for parents to learn more about our SEL program and how to incorporate skills taught at school into your routines at home. Parents will learn language, strategies, and activities that they can use to support the social emotional growth of their child. Social emotional learning isn’t just something that should be practiced and taught at school. SEL skills are life skills that kids can practice anywhere, especially at home.
Please join presenters, SGS counselor Meghan Kilgore and kindergarten teacher Erika Mullins, for a SEL Presentation for Lower School parents. Two sessions of the presentation will be offered on Thursday, January 20 at 8:30am and 6:30pm in the Dragon’s Den (basement of Metter’s Gym). Please RSVP which session you will attend to Meghan Kilgore at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Jan. 14. Meghan and Erika are excited for this time of sharing and learning with parents back on campus as active members of our SGS community!
