A shout out to Russell Werkman for organizing the Saint George's water station at the end of the Bloomsday race!  Many staff and students, including 13 international students, volunteered their time to provide for the race finishers of Spokane's big community event.  See a Photo Gallery of them preparing the water station and a Photo Gallery of all the SGS Bloomies who ran and/or volunteered wearing their shirts to school on the day after the race.  Go Dragons!

The Spokane Guilds' School & Neuromuscular Center recently got a new name: Joya Child & Family Development.  A special family came to the LS Friday Assembly to share their experience with the school and how Joya's services made a big difference in their lives.  Saint George's is participating in their annual Penny Drive now through Friday, April 26.  Each class has a jug to collect your donated coins (dollars are okay too).  Sign up with Melanie Mildrew to volunteer on Saturday, April 27 -- Penny Day -- to collect donations from drivers on Francis Avenue.  Volunteers get a free milkshake!
