Ski Bus Returns for 2019

January 07, 2019

The Friday Night Ski Bus to Mt. Spokane returns starting Friday, Jan. 11.  Please get money and permission form to Melanie Mildrew by Wednesday, Jan. 9.  Then drop off skis and snowboards at Metters on Friday morning.  See the Ski Bus Information Flyer for more details, and review the Ski Bus Expectations.  The next Ski Bus will be Friday, Feb. 8.

Join the Outdoor Program for an evening of cross country skiing up at the Mt. Spokane Nordic Center on Friday, Jan. 4.  We will leave after school on Friday and return by 7pm.  This is open to 8th through 12th graders.  There is limited gear for students to borrow otherwise they need to provide their own gear -- see Mt. Spokane Nordic Ski Flyer for details.  Students must sign up in their respective divisions and have the waiver filled out by their parents by Thursday, Jan. 3 to participate.

The 5th graders updated the Story Trail with a scientific book, "The Story of Snow", for the month of November.  See a Photo Gallery of them updating the pages along the trail that begins by the school gates and winds along the hillside above campus to the Davenport House.

There's a constant presence of wildlife you can view along the Little Spokane River as it flows past Saint George's School.  Here's a Photo Gallery of animals, birds and fish from just one day in early September.

Why did the turkeys cross the bridge?  Because the street was dug up to replace water lines on campus last week!  See a family of turkeys roaming the Saint George's campus in this wildlife Photo Gallery.

Moose on the Loose

November 05, 2018

A bull moose wandered onto campus after school on Oct. 30, disrupting cross country practice but making for a remarkable display among the fall leaves.  See a Photo Gallery of Bullwinkle enjoying the grass and leaves near Graduation Lawn!

Just like Lewis and Clark more than 200 years ago, the 8th graders canoed down the Little Spokane River in late September and mapped the river's winding path.  See a Photo Gallery of them navigating and mapping like seasoned explorers!

After positioning canoes, teams of 8th graders staged a relay race around campus on Sept. 26. They began with orienteering, then a trail run, obstacle course, archery and ended with canoeing on the Little Spokane and a dash to the finish!  See a Photo Gallery of the action.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Spokane River Clean-Up.  This year, 855 volunteers cleaned up 3.44 tons of garbage and 450 pounds of recyclables from Nine Mile Falls to the Spokane Valley.  Thanks for helping beautified our region's most treasured resource, the Spokane River.

The 7th grade class spent several days at Camp Spalding on Davis Lake last week.  See photo galleries of them Fly Fishing, Rock Climbing, and doing Team-Building Exercises on a beautiful fall afternoon.
