The Kindergarten artists created big snowmen and women to decorate Metters Gym for the Lower School Holiday Concerts.  Here is a Photo Gallery of some of the kids posed with their creations.

The Lower School classes performed mini-concerts in Metters Gym on Dec. 15 and 16.  See photo galleries from the Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, and 5th Grade holiday shows.  Plus enjoy videos on the new SGS YouTube Channel of: 
Kindergarten Performing "Snowflake" 
1st Dancing with Ribbons to "The Nutcracker" 
2nd Graders "Sing for Peace" 
3rd Graders Perform a Stick Dance 
4th Grade's "Can Can" Percussion 
5th Grade Performing Silent Night 

The 6th graders sang holiday songs and played handbells for the rest of the Middle School on Dec. 17 just before their holiday break.  See a Photo Gallery of them on stage.

Friday, December 17 is the last day of classes for 2021.  Students will be dismissed at 12:10pm, so busses will take their usual routes, just 3 hours earlier than normal.  There is no late bus or After School Enrichment on Dec. 17.  

In addition, the 6th graders will perform for the Middle School, with parents and families welcome, at 11:05am in Founders Theater.  The students will be singing a few carols and performing some songs they have practiced on tone chimes.  If the concert ends early, parents can sign their student(s) out and begin vacation a little early!  We are asking students to dress festively for their performance -- holiday sweaters, Santa hats, elf ears, etc. are encouraged.  

The Symphonic Choir performed holiday songs for parents and friends at the Upper School concert on Dec. 8.  See a Photo Gallery of their performance, and watch several of their songs -- "Sleigh Ride" and "Blue Christmas" (with solo by Gabe Gustafson).

The Lower School classes will perform mini-concerts in Metters Gym on Dec. 15 and 16.  K, 2nd, and 4th will perform on Wednesday the 15th, while grades 1, 3, and 5 will perform on Thursday the 16th.  Performance times are:
o December 15: Grade K @ 9:30; Grade 2 @10:00; Grade 4 @ 10:30am
o December 16: Grade 1 @ 9:30; Grade 3 @ 10:00; Grade 5 @ 10:30am
Please attend ONLY the performances when your child is on stage.  This will help with seating for family members and reduce overcrowding.  And please vacate Metters Gym as soon as possible when your child's performance is over.  Relatives are welcome, but all attendees must be masked.
If you need a space before or after performances, the Dragons Den downstairs is open for you, but please also feel free to go to the Arts Building.  It will be open to gather and socialize in its foyer and in the music classroom.  View the display of beautiful two-dimensional artwork as well as holiday-themed ceramics from every one of our 110 students.  Please go take a look!

The Lower School students each made ceramic art to be displayed in the Arts Building.  The Kindergarten made stars, the 1st graders made penguins, and the 2nd graders made the trees in this Photo Gallery.  In a separate Photo Gallery, you can see the 3rd graders' trees, the 4th graders' snowmen, and the 5th graders' gnomes.  Both displays and more wintery artwork will be available to view in the Arts Building Gallery during the Lower School holiday concerts on Dec. 15 and 16.

Each Lower School class drew and cut out gingerbread houses to decorate the windows of the Arts Building. The houses in this Photo Gallery are shown by grade K through 5th, with a group of houses and then several close ups from each grade.  (See the 1st graders drawing and cutting out their houses in this Photo Gallery.)  The entire village will be on display through the holidays.

The Lower Schoolers drew winter artwork from snowmen to mountains to Santa hats.  Here's a Photo Gallery of some of their creations, which are on display in the Arts Building gallery.

The 6th grade's photography class inspired them to take photos around campus of their friends (and some natural features) this fall.  See a Photo Gallery of the settings and friends they captured.
