The 7th grade's Theme Day on Oct. 1 focused on the Spokane River. Student got to meet the Riverkeeper, clean up garbage at Peoples Park, discuss water quality, learn about point versus non-point pollution sources, hike along the Spokane River for 2.6 miles, meet with the Lands Council, and learn about storm gardens and how they mitigate pollution. A full day!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Spokane River Clean-Up on Sept. 14, including 20 SGS students and family members. You successfully beautified our region's most treasured resource, the Spokane River. This year, 667 volunteers cleaned up 3.81 tons of garbage and 505 pounds of recyclables from Nine Mile Falls to the Spokane Valley. Great job!
Saint George's had 22 people out for the Spokane River Clean up this past Saturday, Sept. 14. A big thanks to all of the volunteers who represented the entire SGS community!
The Outdoor Club spent a beautiful September weekend in the North Idaho wilderness hiking to Harrison Lake and back. See a Photo Gallery of the scenery they saw while hiking. When they camped at Harrison Lake, 10th grader Finley Wolff and 11th grader Tristan Krzyzanek took some amazing night shots of the stars and their campground -- see their Photo Gallery.
