SGS students and staff donated a total of 4,953 lbs. of food for local families during the recent Scare Away Hunger Food Drive.  That works out to almost 25,000 meals!  In addition, an SGS family made an anonymous donation of $5,000 to 2nd Harvest Food Bank to help even more families.  Thank you to everyone who contributed -- this is the largest food drive that 2nd Harvest receives this time of year.  

The top grade for donations again this year was the 5th Grade, who raised 1,010 lbs of food, or nearly 39 lbs. per student!  The 6th Graders had the most pounds per student in the Middle School, while the 9th Graders were tops in the Upper School.  See the Results for All Grades for how many pounds were donated per student.  And check out this Photo Gallery of when the truck from 2nd Harvest came to pick up all the bins in front of the Upper/Middle School and the Lower School on Nov. 4. 

The SGS Fall Blood Drive is coming up on Monday, Nov. 8 from 7:45am to 1:45pm in Metters Gym.  Adults and students 16 and older (with parent's permission) can sign up to give at the Vitalant website.  See the Blood Drive Flyer for details and a QR Code to sign up.  Because of you, life doesn't stop!

If we can get 60 successful donations in total at our fall and spring drives, Saint George's will receive a $2,000 STEM grant!  With the grant that we received from last year and hopefully this year too, the school plans to install Wi-Fi on the soccer field and Graduation Lawn.  The goal is that students could take classes outside, parents could Facetime at soccer games, and everyone could share photos during Graduation!  Read the Blood Drive Letter for more details and sign up to donate.

Tuesday, November 2nd is the last day to bring in non-perishable food items for Saint George's annual "Scare Away Hunger Campaign".  The bins are starting to overflow in each division with canned and boxed meals for our hungry neighbors.  2nd Harvest relies on Saint George's for their biggest food drive this time of year -- don't let them down!  Upper School students also helped 2nd Harvest sort food at their facility on Oct. 28 -- see a Photo Gallery of them busily at work.    

K-1-2 Visit the Pumpkin Patch

November 01, 2021

The Lower School students went to the Pumpkin Patch on Greenbluff for fun and treats on Oct. 29.  See a Photo Gallery of them enjoying the cloudy morning.

Friday, Oct. 29 was dress up day for the entire school, as students and teachers put on their best Halloween costumes.  Here are photo galleries of the Lower School Students doing the “Ghostbusters Dance” outside; of the Middle School Faculty arriving straight from Hogwarts, while the students were from everywhere; and the Upper School Students holding a costume contest in Founders Theater.  Happy Halloween!

Upper School students enjoyed a memorable night at the Homecoming Dance on Oct. 15.  Held in a large tent on Graduation Lawn, the setting was perfect for the theme of Enchanted Forest.  See Maja Rodell's Photo Gallery of the evening.  Some of the characters looked like they had saved their costumes from A Midsummer Night's Dream.

If you would like school picture retakes, or your student didn't get a photo taken in September, they can get a photo taken the morning of Wed., October 27.  Please return the unwanted photos in their original envelope for the photographer.  Alert your student's division assistant (;; and their LS teacher that retakes are needed.


Penny Drive Helps Joya Kids

October 18, 2021

Thank you to the students and staff of SGS for supporting the Joya Penny Drive.  Saint George's community raised $268.54 to help infants and toddlers with developmental difficulties and delays realize their pull potential and get ready for school!

Saint George's annual "Scare Away Hunger Campaign" continues through November 2.  Please help your student bring in non-perishable food items for donations.  There are collection bins in the MS and US courtyards and by every LS classroom -- see how the K through 4th graders have decorated their bins in the photos above!  Local families really need foods that are meals, easy to cook, and proteins.  Cereal is also a favorite, but any packaged or canned food is welcome.  Saint George's is 2nd Harvest’s biggest food drive this time of year, and they always look forward to working with us.
