A giant thank you to the Georges River Education Foundation for funding the startup of the St George School Social Emotional Learning (SEL) library. With GREF’s support, books were purchased for grades K-5 that explore the themes of empathy, anger management, problem solving, accepting differences, identifying feelings and more! In addition, this library supports and enriches teachers' implementation of the Second Step curriculum. Many thanks to GREF for their generosity and support of our endeavors!

Mrs. Miller and her Fifth grade class would like to send a huge thank you to the Georges River Education Foundation for funding their Malaga Island Learning Expedition. With GREF’s support, students were able to purchase research texts and publish a picture book telling the story of Malaga Island. Funds also supported the purchase of supplies, which provided students the opportunity to tell the story of Malaga Island through art. Many thanks to GREF for their generosity and support of our project!

Ms. Thompson's and Mrs. Rice's classes would like to give a huge thank you to the Georges River Education Foundation. Their grant made it possible for the K and 1st-grade students to take part in a very cool learning opportunity about birds. Also a shout out to Mrs. Erb for jumping in and helping us with our learning! Students have been bird-watching at the feeder station in their classroom and down by the marsh. We installed two bird houses on the playground. Tree swallows set up housekeeping in one of them! Mr. Meinersmann is helping us capture actual footage with the school GoPro. We have included a small clip here (https://youtu.be/KF9K9wFOnHc)! All of the students researched a bird of their choice and created an expert bird drawing of their bird. We worked on several drafts to get it just the way we wanted it. They also wrote bird reports, we learned so much using the books we purchased with our G.R.E.F. grant!

On Friday, 8th grade students were invited to read with some our youngest dragons. This type of multi-grade K-8 experience is just one of the reasons that St. George School is special.

Our fish are being fired and as batches come out of the kiln they are being sealed with a coat of acrylic gesso! In between creating the fish and preparing them for final painting is our time to dig into the history of the run: What was it like in our community when the fish came in? Why did we lose our run? What has been done to try and restore the run? blog post link https://alewives.edublogs.org/

On Friday, St. George School students and staff celebrated Better World Day by participating in various community service projects up and down the peninsula. Whether it was picking up trash around town, filling up little free libraries, creating a garden, or making our school sign more beautiful, a meaningful and fun day was had by all. Each year, thousands of students across the country at EL network schools join together with one common purpose: to make the world a better place. It is a guiding message woven throughout our year, but made clearly visible on this unique day.
