Congratulations to SGS Debaters Gabi Cunningham (senior) and Tariq Ravasia (junior). Over the last two weekends, Gabi and Tariq reached the Sweet Sixteen not once, but twice, at national circuit tournaments. The Grapevine Tournament (Texas) and the Jack Howe Tournament (California) both draw hundreds of policy teams from a national pool of talent. Competing virtually, Gabi and Tariq beat out contenders from all across the nation to reach the octafinals at both events. Go Dragons!
The light posts on campus have new banners celebrating student achievements from the past year and highlighting this year's theme of "Thrive". See a Photo Gallery of the red and black banners that decorate the road in front of the Middle and Upper School as well as the front of the Errol Schmidt Athletic Center.
The Lands Council has delayed their annual Spokane River Cleanup until Saturday, Sept. 26 from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Families can Sign Up Online and then select a section of the river to clean of garbage and debris. It's a big river with multiple locations around the city, so it will be easy to socially distance. If you form your own group, let Melanie Mildrew know if you plan to meet the other SGS groups at 11:50am in People’s Park.
Share your adventure! Students can send a photo and caption of where they are and what they are doing to David Holte and he will post it on the SGS Outdoor Club Instagram page (sgsoutdoorclub). This is a public site, so we won't post students’ names. All photos need to represent our school values, so do not put the photographer or members of the party in harm’s way and be sure to practice the general Covid health guidelines of the Spokane Regional Health District. Photos that do not adhere to these standards will not be posted. Email your entries to both Holte and Melanie at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com from your school email address.
