Every year, more than 90% of eligible Saint George’s School students return for the following school year. The Admissions Office tries to make the re-enrollment process as user-friendly as possible, such as the recent addition of an electronic enrollment agreement. But to make things even easier for SGS families and reward such great school loyalty, Saint George's is about to launch "Continuous Enrollment". See a Timeline Chart for how Continuous Enrollment will be rolled out over the coming year.

Seventh graders Jaiden Nagra and Ellis Benson have organized a Kneaded Hearts drive for warm items like gloves, hats, scarfs, coat (may be slightly used or new). The drive will focus on collecting warm items for Shiloh Hills Elementary students through the 18th of January. Ellis says, "our fundamental goal is to demonstrate the reaches of poverty to our students. This drive is part of our Genius Hour project, which is a project that Middle School students do in English." Look for bins in both the Middle and Upper School courtyards and donate warm items for local students in need.
All the TEDxSpokane 2018 speakers' videos are now live on the TEDxSpokane YouTube Channel.

From local doctors and architects to "poetry activists" and the national Teacher of the Year, these speakers are sure to spark some new ideas as they focus on the theme of "Beyond Ourselves".
With winter weather upon us, please drive cautiously and be patient if you find that the busses are running late. With poor driving conditions and winter traffic slow-downs, even requiring tire chains, we can expect delays. If you have concerns about a bus that is running late, please call Durham at 509-483-0224.

Beginning in December 2018, Saint George's is now buying about 50% of its electricity through the Avista Solar SelectTM program. That amounts to more than 310,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, which are generated by the largest solar array in Washington state near Lind using 81,700 panels covering 200 acres. SGS is one of 60 local businesses in the Solar Select program that are filling up to half of their electric needs with renewable solar power. Thanks to state and federal incentives, Avista does not charge an additional cost to the school to purchase electricity from the program. See the Solar Select - Facts & FAQs document on the SGS website for more details on how the power of the sun is now powering learning at SGS.
