Be Aware of Nut Allergies

September 16, 2019

Please do not bring any peanuts or tree nuts in lunches if your child is going on a field trip or outting.  Also be aware that we have students with nut allergies in each division.  If your student is bringing any nut products to the Middle or Upper School, remind them NOT to sit at the tables that are marked with the No Nuts signs in each lunchroom.  In the Lower School, there is a table specifically marked just for students who bring peanuts and nuts.  Thank you!

Tuesday, Sept. 17 is Photo Day for the Middle and Upper School students.  Lower School student pictures are Thursday morning, Sept. 19.  The envelope from Classic Image Photography went home with all Lower and Middle School students last week; Upper School students can find the forms in their mailboxes at school.  Students are to bring their envelope back to school on the 17th or 19th even if they do not wish to order a photo package.  Every student will have a picture taken for the yearbook, and the photographer will need the student's name/bar code to match the photo taken for the yearbook. 

This Friday, Sept. 13 is the Upper School "Hot Pot Potluck" from 5-7pm in the US Courtyard.  Then at 6:30pm enjoy watching "Spiderman - Into the Spiderverse" for Outdoor Movie Night on the Graduation Lawn.  Weather forecast is for mid-70s and dry with a slight breeze, so should be nice for the movie!  

Hot Pot is a Chinese cooking method where ingredients of meats, tofu, veggies and noodles are added to a simmering pot of soup stock.  We will supply the rice, condiments and some dumplings.  This will be an informal, fun, "take your time" cooking and eating session.  We will have about 7-9 hot pots going, so hopefully it all works out!  Click on Read More to see what each student should bring...

Each class lined up on the Davenport House lawn before the start of the Dragon Dance on Friday, Aug. 30.  Then the senior class, under their dragon, marched across Graduation Lawn with the rest of the student body following behind them for the annual celebration that kicks off the first week of school.  See photo galleries of the Classes on Davenport Lawn and of the Dragon Dance weaving across Graduation Lawn!

Twelve members of the Class of 2020, who started at SGS in Kindergarten, returned to their first classroom on Friday, Aug. 30.  See a Photo Gallery of them posing with their former Lower School teachers, showing off a few of their own Dragon stories from 2007, meeting the new Kindergarten class, and then introducing them to the rest of the school in the Schmidt Center Gym after the Dragon Dance.

New Upper School students -- whether rising 9th graders or students new to SGS -- were matched up with an Upper School mentor on the first day of school.  They spent time getting to know each other, answering questions about life in the Upper School, and planning future activities to help everyone feel welcomed into the Upper School community.  See a Photo Gallery of the "Path of the Dragon" program in action!
