Efforts to Beat the Heat
During these next few days, temperatures in the area are predicted to be in the very high 80s up to the mid-90s. Therefore St. Giles will allow students normally in uniform to be OUT OF UNIFORM in school appropriate attire Monday through Wednesday August 25 - 27. Please be sure to also send your children with water bottles. We will make every effort to keep children hydrated and cool in these unusual circumstances.
Support the Fighters, Admire the Survivors, Remember the Taken -
Stand Up To Cancer
The St. Giles Community unfortunately been inundated with too many examples of all three of these. Students, alumni, staff, and family members have been touched by the disease of cancer. We've all asked, "How can we help?" and "What can we do?" and not always been able to come up with a sufficient answer.
That was until computer teacher Sue Bailey, herself a survivor, organized a watch party for the Stand Up To Cancer national fundraising event. On Friday, September 5at 6pm we will gather together as a community to take part in this event. Please register with a $25 (or more) donation and help us raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Remembering Our Teacher, Colleague, Friend, and Mentor
Thomas P. Bell: May 11, 1963 - August 6, 2014
It is with heavy hearts that the entire St. Giles community sent off our beloved art teacher Tom Bell. Tom was that wonderful combination of talent, compassion, and humor and he will be missed by students, staff, and community. Through our tears, let us remember, as Father Carl suggested, that in each laugh, in each new adventure, in each shared simple moment our God is with us and therefore Tom's spirit lives on.
