Local Astronaut Started at SGS

December 03, 2018

Local astronaut Anne McClain successfully blasted off Monday, Dec. 3 to the International Space Station from Kazakhstan.  She will spend more than six months doing research and experiments in biology, Earth science, physical sciences and technology.  

McClain attended Saint George's Lower School before graduating from Gonzaga Prep in 1997.  After a year in the ROTC program at Gonzaga University, she attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aeronautical engineering.  Read more about Anne's journey to the stars in this Article in the Spokesman.

The Secondary School (grades 6-12) offers lunches four days out of the week (Tuesday through Friday).  We are currently taking orders for the first half of Semester 2 (Jan. 3 - March 15, 2019).  Lunches are $6.00 each, the cost will be billed to your student account.

You may choose from just one day of lunches up to all four days in any combination, but every day will be the same choice and you are ordering for the entire session.  For instance, if you choose Orange Chicken for Tuesday, that is what you will get every Tuesday. Please also note that there are no refunds for any reason, including missed lunches due to absences or field trips.  We cannot accept any cancellations or changes after January 17, 2019.  Please see the Lunch Calendar on the website for details.

If you would like to take advantage of the Secondary School lunch program, please complete and submit the Online Order Form by 3pm on Monday, December 10.  Thank you!

What is Giving Tuesday?  #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.  Celebrated on the Tuesday (Nov. 27th) following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. 

We hope you’ll consider Saint George’s School on this day of giving.  In fact, if you give on #GivingTuesday, former head of school Joe Kennedy will match donations up to the first $1000.  Head to our Online Giving Form to support SGS on #GivingTuesday! 

Now is a great time to order SGS Spirit Wear for holiday gifts.  Orders for November will close at 5pm on Friday, November 30.  November orders will be delivered to the school on or before December 17.  (Orders placed after 5pm on Nov. 30th will be delivered in January.)  See the Spirit Store Flyer on the website.  Happy Holidays and Go Dragons!

The Operation Christmas Child Drive filled 117 shoeboxes for children in other countries affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease.  Through an international relief organization, Samaritan's Purse, the boxes will be sent around the world filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children who otherwise might not receive Christmas presents.  Thank you for your generosity!

There's a constant presence of wildlife you can view along the Little Spokane River as it flows past Saint George's School.  Here's a Photo Gallery of animals, birds and fish from just one day in early September.

Why did the turkeys cross the bridge?  Because the street was dug up to replace water lines on campus last week!  See a family of turkeys roaming the Saint George's campus in this wildlife Photo Gallery.
