Saint George's is offering a long list of week-long day camps for students this summer.  From chess and basketball to 3D printing and Harry Potter, there is something for everyone.  See the full list of camps at and sign up your student for a summer learning treat!

The Upper School's Junior-Senior Prom at the CDA Resort set sail on the lake for an evening of fun and dancing on May 25th.  See photo galleries of shots by Mike Wootton of the students' Formal Portraits and of them enjoying Dancing on the Boat that cruised across the lake.

The 5th graders formally crossed the bridge to the Middle School on May 30, being cheered by the rest of the Lower School, congratulated by their teachers, and welcomed by the Middle School and their families.  See a photo gallery of the Bridge Crossing Ceremony and another gallery of images from their Luncheon & Games afterwards.  A delicious and fun way to finish 5th grade!

We are hoping and planning for beautiful weather at the Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2019 on Friday, May 31.  There will be an early dismissal at 12:00 noon for grades K-12, then the ceremony begins at 2:00pm on Graduation Lawn with bagpipes leading the procession.  All are invited to celebrate this community event!

The 5th Grade Recognition Ceremony will be on Thursday, May 30, starting promptly at 8:30am with the fifth-grade students crossing the little bridge to the Middle School.  All K-5 parents are invited to attend.  After the bridge crossing, students, faculty, and parents will move to Founders' Theater for the special ceremony.  Following the ceremony, the fifth-graders (without parents) will have a luncheon in the Dragon Den.  Congratulations on completing your Lower School careers, Dragons!

The SGS Blood Drive had 34 successful donations and collected 42 units of blood on May 14.  For this year, we’ve had 77 total successful donations we collected 87 units of blood.  This is the best drive during Melanie Mildrew's time at SGS.

Thank you to everyone who donated and helped organize this event (see photo for some of the volunteers).  We earned the $2,000 STEM grant to replace the GPS units our students use to explore around campus!  Not only do we benefit from the grant now, but each single donation can benefit up to three people, so we are helping hundreds of people in our community.  Thank you, Dragons!

SGS 10th grader Katie Carter was selected as a Princess to the Spokane Valleyfest Court.  The scholarship program included 6-weeks of leadership training before the coronation on April 20.  She rode in the Lilac Parade on May 18 and will be involved in a variety of community events in the Valley and across the Spokane area throughout the coming year.  Congratulations, Katie!

As of Monday night, we need at least 10 more donors to sign up for the SGS Blood Drive on Tuesday, May 14 to earn a $2,000 STEM grant to replace the Outdoor Club's 10-year-old GPS units.  The drive goes from 9:30am to 3:30pm.  Save a life and help SGS earn a $2,000 grant!  Please use This Link to sign up for it today!

The annual Spring Gala brought together 150 SGS parents, teachers and staff for an evening at the nearby Kalispel Golf & Country Club.  Attendees enjoyed gathering with friends, saw a new video about the planned LS-MS Arts Building, and donated or pledged support for the new facility.  See a Photo Gallery of the event.

A big thank you to the K-12 students and faculty for raising $2,699.95 during the SGS Penny Drive in April for Joya Child & Family Development (formerly Spokane Guilds' School & Neuromuscular Center).  The third graders collected $456.81 (that's $28.55 per person) and won the LS division prize--Otter Pops for the class!  Middle School winners were the 8th graders who raised $486.12 ($14.30 per person), while the 10th graders topped the Upper School with $730.24 ($16.23 per person).  The big winners are the kids at Joya where every penny supports their comprehensive care program.  Thank you, Dragons!
