A Sept. 27 article in the Spokesman-Review about Spokane Children's Theater featured several SGS drama teachers.  Bob Farley not only directed dramas (and taught chemistry) at SGS, but also played the role of Tickles the clown for SCT.  "Tickles appeared at Expo ’74 and was a regular visitor at Shriners Hospital, in addition to welcoming the audience to SCT performances."  The article also notes that local theater luminaries, such as SGS director/choreographer Jeanne Hardie, have also been in SCT productions over the years.  Read the Full Article and see a photo of Bob as Tickles in a production from the mid-1970s.

On the Saint George's Story Trail during August, you can read the Caldecott honored tale of "Blueberries for Sal" by Robert McCloskey.  The story tells of a little girl, Sal, and her mother as they pick blueberries for winter, while a bear cub and his mother are eating berries for winter on the other side of the same hill. 

The Story Trail begins just inside the school's front gates and winds up the hillside through bushes and trees before descending to the Davenport House.  The trail is open weekdays from dawn until dusk, and occasionally on weekends when there is an event on campus.  Visitors are welcome to hike the trail anytime the gates are open.  Keep up on future books through the SGS Story Trail Facebook Page.
