Saint George's is hosting a blood drive on Wednesday, March 6 from 11am-5pm.  If at least 30 donors contribute at this drive and the next on May 14, then SGS will receive a $2,000 STEM grant that could replace the aging GPS units our K-12 students use for outdoor activities.  See Blood Donor Requirements and Instructions for Donor Sign Ups in advance of March 6.  Thanks for donating life and helping our students explore nature!

Every year, more than 90% of eligible Saint George’s School students return for the following school year.  The Admissions Office tries to make the re-enrollment process as user-friendly as possible, such as the recent addition of an electronic enrollment agreement.  But to make things even easier for SGS families and reward such great school loyalty, Saint George's is about to launch "Continuous Enrollment".  See a Timeline Chart for how Continuous Enrollment will be rolled out over the coming year.  

View a Short Video describing what this is and how it will work.  Plus you can see answers to Frequently Asked Questions on the SGS Website under Admissions / Continuous Enrollment.

The Upper School photography class has printed out and displayed their best work in the Art Gallery.  From nature to portraits to still life to stop motion, there are plenty of amazing photos to see in this exhibit that will run through February.  See a Photo Gallery of some of the images and stop by to enjoy them all!
