Melville to Step Down from Coaching Boys Soccer

Heidi Melville has decided to leave her position as Head Boys Soccer Coach and focus on her teaching role at SGS this fall. “Though I’ve loved teaching in the Lower School and coaching these past two years, I have been stretched pretty thin,” she said in a recent email to the SGS soccer team and families. “In order to give teaching and my students the time and energy I need, I have to let the coaching side of me go.”

Heidi directed the SGS boys’ soccer team to multiple State Championships, most recently in 2019. “Coaching has been a part of my life since I was in college. I have spent the last fifteen years with this program and have absolutely LOVED the life-long relationships I have formed. I am grateful to all of my players and their families for weaving such beautiful images into the fabric of my life.”

She also has been an assistant coach with the girls’ basketball team, coached track and field athletes, and coached a 5th grade basketball team during her time at Saint George’s. Heidi will continue coaching 5th grade basketball while she focuses on teaching 4th grade in the fall.

5th & 6th Grade Musicals Coming This Week

Then the 5th grade’s delayed performance of their musical “Dear Edwina”, about the joys of growing up, will be in Founders Theater at 7pm on Friday, May 27. Both shows are free and open to families and friends who want to enjoy these energetic productions!

Bridge Closure to Affect Graduation Weekend

Spokane County has notified Saint George’s that the bridge over the Little Spokane River just north of the entrance to SGS will be closed for reconstruction during the weekend of May 21-22. (See the Construction Company’s Letter.) If you usually take Rutter Parkway to reach the campus, you will need to take an alternate route to come to Graduation on Sunday, May 22. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. (with seniors and their families arriving earlier), so plan additional time to get to and from campus that day if you usually cross this bridge.
