It was an exciting afternoon last week when the 1st graders learned about all the good things worms do for the soil and got to hold some of the little wrigglers too!  See a Photo Gallery of the wiggly fun!

The 2nd graders spent an afternoon making bubbles -- lots of tiny bubbles that blow away and some really big bubbles that they could stand inside of!  See the Video of them learning about the fun science of bubbles.

Parents of seniors, please save the date of Wednesday, Oct. 3 for a special College Night presentation at 6:00pm in the Dragon Room.  Learn all about the college admission process, news from the NACAC conference, and the SGS college counseling services designed to help your senior find and gain admission to the right college or university for them.  Parents of 11th graders also are welcome to attend.
