When the boys JV soccer team faced off against the faculty and staff on Wednesday, Oct. 16, it was a match to remember. The teachers and coaches notched one goal in the first half and threatened multiple times. But with the game ending and just seconds remaining in extra time, the JV lobbed a shot into the faculty goal to tie the match. In the shootout that ensued, coach Mark Rickard (making a save in the photo above) blocked all but one of the students' five shots and the faculty claimed a 3-1 victory!

From taking the PSAT test to eating an Oktoberfest lunch to trying out a variety of stress relieving and community building activities, the Middle and Upper School students enjoyed a full day on Wed., Oct. 16. See a Video Overview of their day as well as photo galleries of taking the PSAT Exam, enjoying an Oktoberfest Lunch, their Community Day Outdoor Activities (capture the flag, walking and petting dogs, photo scavenger hunt, chalk drawings), their Quieter Activities (reading to Kindergarten students, practicing yoga, learning mindfulness techniques), and their Arts & Games Activities (face painting, painting kindness rocks, drawing, playing games). It was a fun way to connect with students in different grades and build up the SGS community!
