This Friday, Sept. 13 is the Upper School "Hot Pot Potluck" from 5-7pm in the US Courtyard.  Then at 6:30pm enjoy watching "Spiderman - Into the Spiderverse" for Outdoor Movie Night on the Graduation Lawn.  Weather forecast is for mid-70s and dry with a slight breeze, so should be nice for the movie!  

Hot Pot is a Chinese cooking method where ingredients of meats, tofu, veggies and noodles are added to a simmering pot of soup stock.  We will supply the rice, condiments and some dumplings.  This will be an informal, fun, "take your time" cooking and eating session.  We will have about 7-9 hot pots going, so hopefully it all works out!  Click on Read More to see what each student should bring...

Each class lined up on the Davenport House lawn before the start of the Dragon Dance on Friday, Aug. 30.  Then the senior class, under their dragon, marched across Graduation Lawn with the rest of the student body following behind them for the annual celebration that kicks off the first week of school.  See photo galleries of the Classes on Davenport Lawn and of the Dragon Dance weaving across Graduation Lawn!

Twelve members of the Class of 2020, who started at SGS in Kindergarten, returned to their first classroom on Friday, Aug. 30.  See a Photo Gallery of them posing with their former Lower School teachers, showing off a few of their own Dragon stories from 2007, meeting the new Kindergarten class, and then introducing them to the rest of the school in the Schmidt Center Gym after the Dragon Dance.

New Upper School students -- whether rising 9th graders or students new to SGS -- were matched up with an Upper School mentor on the first day of school.  They spent time getting to know each other, answering questions about life in the Upper School, and planning future activities to help everyone feel welcomed into the Upper School community.  See a Photo Gallery of the "Path of the Dragon" program in action!

Come watch the K-12 Dragon Dance as the dragon winds its way across Davenport Lawn down to the Graduation Platform.  Students will form the very long dragon, led by the seniors, on the Davenport Hill beginning at 2:15 pm.  Once the students are down by the Graduation Platform, the Kindergartners will be introduced by the seniors who have attended SGS since kindergarten.  Then the LS students and each class from grade 6-12 will present their special song, dance, chant, or whatever their imaginations come up with to express their class identity.  The Dragon Dance is a unique school tradition that brings the oldest to the youngest students together for a fun-filled event to kick off the first week of school.  Hope to see you there!
