Gnu Stories, the SSFS all-school newsletter, is sent bi-weekly on Fridays during the school year, and features stories that provide families with a snapshot of school life at SSFS and connects them to the wider community.
Our Seniors had their first play date with their preschool (age 3)-1st grade buddies!
On Oct. 8, each Upper School grade participated in on- and off-campus activities aimed at community-building, fun, and education.
Listen to the latest Gnu Stories podcast featuring Kwame Darko, David Hickson, Johanna Cowie, and Bob Hoch as they talk with Head of School Rodney Glasgow about the founding of the School, the role of the community over the past 60 years, and our school's connection to the wider Sandy Spring community.
It's official! The SSFS mascot, the Wildebeest, is now honored on the menu of "local creations" at CB Açaí in Olney. The owners of this local restaurant collaborated with Upper School Torch students to create the menu item, which includes organic Acai blended with oat milk, layered with granola, banana, kiwi, pineapple, and shredded coconut in the school colors of gold and green. Curious about how SSFS got its school colors and mascot? Check out the blog!
On Oct. 13, 10th and 11th grade students gathered to take the PSAT on campus at SSFS. Meanwhile, seniors worked with the College Counseling team and Upper School English teachers on completing college applications and writing essays. One member of the Class of 2021 shared that "the different workshops really helped alleviate the stress I was feeling about college applications.”
