Meet the Activity Leaders (Virtual)
Wednesday, January 19, 6 p.m.

At GFS, we believe that student development requires more than classroom instruction. Extracurricular life is an important part of a student’s development within our community. With more than 70 clubs and activities, students enjoy many opportunities to celebrate their talents and discover new passions. Families with Middle and Upper School applicants are invited to meet some of our student leaders and learn more about student life at GFS.
