Why did the turkeys cross the bridge?  Because the street was dug up to replace water lines on campus last week!  See a family of turkeys roaming the Saint George's campus in this wildlife Photo Gallery.

Moose on the Loose

November 05, 2018

A bull moose wandered onto campus after school on Oct. 30, disrupting cross country practice but making for a remarkable display among the fall leaves.  See a Photo Gallery of Bullwinkle enjoying the grass and leaves near Graduation Lawn!

Just like Lewis and Clark more than 200 years ago, the 8th graders canoed down the Little Spokane River in late September and mapped the river's winding path.  See a Photo Gallery of them navigating and mapping like seasoned explorers!

After positioning canoes, teams of 8th graders staged a relay race around campus on Sept. 26. They began with orienteering, then a trail run, obstacle course, archery and ended with canoeing on the Little Spokane and a dash to the finish!  See a Photo Gallery of the action.
