Blood Drive Draws 30 Donors

November 29, 2021

Thank you to everyone who donated at the SGS Blood Drive on Nov. 8.  We had 30 donors and 33 units of blood donated to help local patients in need.  Thank you!  If we get 30 donors at our spring 2022 Blood Drive, Saint George's will earn a grant that we can use to expand wi-fi connectivity across the campus.

Thank you to the Saint George's students and parents for supporting Operation Christmas Child.  We shipped off 106 boxes of cheer to students in war-torn countries around the world.  Good work, Dragons!

Several parents have shared some of the reasons they give back to Saint George's School: 

"SGS is a place where my children are all known and loved. They are seen as individuals and the teachers support and challenge them to achieve their highest potential." -Genevieve Mann Morris 

"We give to Saint George’s to honor the educators and staff that are such a huge part of the overall development and well-being of our two boys, and all children for that matter." -Manny and Vange Hochheimer

"We believe that education is one of the most important factors for success in the future. SGS has a solid educational curriculum and a proven track record for making available to students and their families the keys to educational and future success… We considered many different opportunities in the region and SGS stood out as exemplary in all facets of education." -Maren and Robert Scoggins

Saint George’s School believes an investment in knowledge is the key to success.  Because of support for the Annual Fund, SGS is able to invest in our students, staff, faculty, and facilities to provide an education that creates life-long learners.  Every day, SGS delivers a life-changing education that engages the mind, stimulates curiosity, and prompts critical thinking.  

Our students are active learners, so we offer hands-on and experiential learning opportunities that are unique to SGS.  Our beautiful campus serves as the backdrop for learning activities and outdoor education – including the climbing gym, river floats, and rock climbing.  In addition, our no-cut athletics policy, breadth of performing and visual arts, science labs, field work, and robotics (Lego, FTC, FRC) are top-notch.  

Your donation to the Annual Fund helps ensure that experiential learning opportunities like these remain a vital part of student life for years to come.  Saint George’s is the only school in the area able to offer these benefits to our students, often gearing it to individual student interests.  All of this is possible because of the generosity of our families and donors.  

Please join us in our efforts to help build a world-class learning experience by supporting the 2021-22 Annual Fund.  Our campaign kicks off on Monday, November 8.  By taking up this challenge, you can help Saint George’s School meet its Annual Fund goal of $190,000 and 90%+ parent participation.  Simply CLICK HERE to make your donation!
