Saint George’s School is excited to welcome Stephanie Jackson as our new volleyball coach! We think Coach Jackson will be a great addition to the Saint George's Community. When we get back together, please make it a point to introduce yourself and Stephanie to our School.
As a collegiate athlete, Stephanie was a volleyball player at Auburn and the University of Georgia. During her collegiate career, she won the Arthur Ashe student-athlete award in 1999. Stephanie grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, in Lockport, IL. In high school, she was the Illinois Gatorade and Chicago Sun Times Player of the year her senior year. Stephanie was a setter and an outside hitter throughout her career.
Stephanie has taught English as a Foreign Language internationally in China, Venezuela and the United Arab Emirates. In the United States, Stephanie has primarily taught History and Spanish in Illinois and Louisiana. While teaching, Stephanie also sponsored a student club that advocated against school bullying. She has a Master of Arts in Teaching in the Secondary Classroom.
"Stephanie has demonstrated a strong passion for youth leadership and a belief in the values fostered by an International Baccalaureate education," says Ryan Peplinski, SGS Athletic Director. "She is excited to have the opportunity to join the Saint George’s community and to help the players get closer to fulfilling their potential in volleyball, in school and in life, and in doing so to help lead the Saint George’s volleyball team to victory!"
Saint George's regrets to announce that the annual Golf Classic scheduled for June 26th has been cancelled. The restrictions on off-campus events during Phase II means the school needs to avoid getting out of compliance with state rules. Everyone who has already paid their entry fee will receive a full refund. Saint George's intends to restart Golf Classic tradition in 2021 on the Friday before Hoopfest. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Athletic Dierctor Ryan Peplinski.
Saint George's will be getting printed yearbooks for 2020, but not until later this summer. We expect they will be distributed when everyone returns to school this fall. If that plan changes, an email will go out to parents and students. And in the meantime, anyone who purchased a 2020 yearbook can view it online. Here are the Instructions.
The 5th through 8th grade students shared their Student Showcase projects on June 1, 2020 via Microsoft Teams. Students from different grades shared their PowerPoints in one of 13 groups. Each of the groups lasted over an hour, and their presentations are loaded onto the SGS YouTube Channel. Watch them to see a variety of student presentations!
