The old Arts Building was demolished on the first day of classes for the Lower School on Aug. 28.  See an 8-minute Video of the full demolition.  Plus you can see a 2-minute Accelerated Video of the demolition -- who knew an entire building could be "chomped apart" that fast!

Students, staff, board members and contractors gathered on a rainy Friday, Sept. 6 to formally break ground for the new Art and Music Building. The Lower School choir sang, architects sketches were on display, and then the golden shovels made it official.  See a Photo Gallery of the event, as well as a Facebook Video of the Ceremony's Highlights.

The new 3,357 sq. ft. facility will have three primary spaces: a Music Room for grades K-5, an Art Room with kiln for grades K-8, and an Art Gallery with seating.  The structure was designed by NAC Architects and is scheduled for completion in April 2020. 

Now you can view the video on the SGS Art and Music Program that premiered at the Spring Gala "Art Party" on May 4.  Thank you to everyone that joined us for an enjoyable evening of fellowship and fundraising.  We raised over $150,000 at that enjoyable evening of fellowship and fundraising, and then SGS received several additional gifts to help us reach our goal for the evening -- supporting the new LS/MS Arts Center and Technology upgrades.  Enjoy watching the Arts Video, and you can still support these initiatives through the Gala Giving Page.  The architects are completing the design documents for the new facility and the school plans to break ground this summer!

The last morning of Lower School on Wednesday, June 5 featured the traditional Red & White Day games for everyone to enjoy!  See a Photo Gallery of the students competing in races, tug of war, egg tosses, tennis court hockey, and just generally getting wet on a warm day.

The 5th graders formally crossed the bridge to the Middle School on May 30, being cheered by the rest of the Lower School, congratulated by their teachers, and welcomed by the Middle School and their families.  See a photo gallery of the Bridge Crossing Ceremony and another gallery of images from their Luncheon & Games afterwards.  A delicious and fun way to finish 5th grade!
