- Providing Balance: How GSB’s Class Schedule Sets Middle Schoolers Up for Academic and Personal Success - 12/08/2023Imagine for a moment a typical day on the job. For many of us, that day might begin by arriving in the morning, coffee in hand, ready to tackle your workload. Just as you're getting started, you are pulled into a meeting, followed by a phone call, followed by another meeting, an impromptu training, an urgent message, and yes, another meeting. By the time it's all over, you wonder where the day has gone.
Imagine how much more effective your day could be if there was designated time to not only focus on your work, but truly take a breath and reflect.
- GSB Stone Soup Day Shows the Magic of Working Together - 12/08/2023With a rolling autumn fog setting a mystical backdrop, GSB Lower Schoolers and their families witnessed the immense power of working together at our annual Stone Soup Day celebration.
- Farm-to-Table Tomatoes Take Center Stage in GSB Dining Hall - 12/08/2023In these last few lingering days of summer heat, parent volunteers joined Farm Assistant Amaia Owens in harvesting Home Winds Farm's tomato crop for consumption by the Gill St. Bernard's community and in prepping the beds for fall seedlings.
With this final harvest, Home Winds Farm successfully reaped over 1300 pounds of tomatoes in one season. The last picking was by no means the largest-that happened on September 12, 2023, when the farm team hauled in over 450 pounds of tomatoes in one day-but by all accounts, there were a lot of tomatoes to consume in a short amount of time.
