Summer Time and the Learning is Fun

As you prepare for the end of school, think about the fun you could still be having while learning at St. Giles. Summer APEX athletic camps as well as academic camps and tutoring are a great way to go. Check out these options in the documents for more information here:

For the 2015-2016 School Year

It is hard to believe, given that THIS school year hasn't ended yet, but plans for the 2015-2016 school year are well underway. If you go to the Forms section under the Student Life tab near the top of the website, you will find various forms to get prepared for next school year under the School Uniforms and Supplies heading. These include the School Supplies List by grade-level and the EPI Supply Order Form, used if you would like to order supplies and have them delivered on the first day of school. Orders will be taken through June 12 only.
