The 6th graders spent part of their Theme Day on Oct. 28 testing the quality of the water in the Little Spokane River by the Graduation Bridge. See a Photo Gallery of them at work evaluating the health of the river flowing past the campus.
Earlier this fall while learning at home, 7th and 8th grade art students went outside to find all the letters of the alphabet in nature (or created with nature if they couldn’t find them). They created a poster then spelled out a word using their alphabets. See a Photo Gallery of their alphabets and see if you can read their words.
The Lower School students who were on campus dressed up in their costumes the day before Halloween and danced to the song Ghost-Busters on the playground. See a Photo Gallery of the variety of strange creatures and superheroes, as well as a Photo Gallery of the Kindergarten classroom costumes. The Middle School also had it's share of strange outfits -- see a Photo Gallery from the 7th grade science class and the MS hallways.
The 8th graders were measuring the speed and acceleration of gravity by dropping tennis balls in the Upper School courtyard. See a Photo Gallery of Shane Kangas' Math class measuring the distance and speed of the balls, then doing their calculations.
The Middle School is back! On Monday, Oct. 5, the 6th graders returned to in-person classes. Then the next day, the 7th and 8th grade students returned for several days of in-person lessons in a variety of Middle and Upper School classrooms. See a Photo Gallery of them getting dropped off on Oct. 6 with Golden Tickets in hand.
In each grade, some students are continuing to join their classmates online via MS Teams. See photo galleries of the 6th Graders in Brad Kirsch's and Kristie Slattengren's classes, the 7th Graders in Spanish and science classes, and the 8th Graders learning their social studies, math and Spanish lessons.
The next phase of Saint George's re-opening will be with Middle Schoolers. Beginning with 6th graders on Monday, Oct. 5, students will return to campus in a staggered approach. Sixth-grade students may attend classes Monday through Thursday this week as we shift to a Hybrid of in-person and distance learning. (There are no classes on Friday, Oct. 9 for a teacher Professional Development Day.)
The 7th and 8th graders may return for in-person classes on Tuesday, October 6 and Wednesday, October 7, then have a Distance Learning day on Thursday, October 8. Because Middle School classes do not operate solely in a cohort, logistical considerations are involved as students change classes during the day and the 7th and 8th grade students will have some classes (choir, art, etc.) together at times. While we are able to maintain the social distancing and facial covers throughout the day, we must be mindful of the additional interactions that take place. Seventh and 8th grade students will continue to have Distance Learning on 8 period days, which are typically on Mondays, as well as on “Special Schedule” days. Parents should refer to Joelle Neiwert's letter for more details, and additional information from Ryan Peplinski, COVID Coordinator.
On a recent morning, 6th grade teachers Brad Kirsch and Kristie Slattengren were in their classrooms engaging their students over MS Teams with stories, writing assignments, and science project reports. See a Photo Gallery of their classes from the teacher's perspective.
Tuesday, Sept. 1 through Thursday, Sept. 3 was Orientation Week for the Middle School. Each day, the students posed for First Day of School photos before starting their classes. See photo galleries of the incoming 6th Graders on Sept. 1, the 7th Graders on Sept. 2, and the 8th Graders on Sept. 3. Welcome back, Dragons!
A team of parents made goody bags and delivered them as a caravan to the 8th graders on Tuesday, June 9th to celebrate the end of the year. See a Photo Gallery of the happy recipients and a Video made by the delivery team.
