St. George's 5th graders visited the Tate, Etienne & Prevost Interpretive Center this week and received an opportunity to tour with, interview and learn from Leona Tate, one of the three girls to integrate what was then McDonogh 19 Elementary School (now the TEP Center). Dr. Kreutziger recounts the trip and the students' valuable experience, as well as Ms. Tate's challenge to stay positive and focused.
Today's blog post by StG parent and Registered Dietician Nutritionist Julie Canseco provides a plethora of recommendations and ideas to answer the age-old question of, "What should I pack my kid for lunch today?"
Kate Remillard, incoming Interim Director of Lower School, writes about her journey to teaching and introduces Growing Minds, an initiative driven by St. George's educators with a goal "to expand our knowledge and use of books that reflect a diverse racial, cultural or religious perspective, as well as those that feature characters with different intellectual and physical abilities or unique social-emotional struggles. Our name, Growing Minds, comes from the idea that we have so much to gain from taking a peek into another's perspective and seeing our own perspectives reflected back to us. This is how we grow our minds and open our thoughts to the world around us."
