Extended Care & After School Programs
Growth happens around the clock. The GSB Lower School offers a free-of-charge Before School Care program and several After School options designed to not only enrich students' time on campus, but provide important flexibility for family's scheduling needs.
Tinker Time is all about invention and exploration. By solving STEAM challenges in our Lower School Tinker Space, students integrate art, mathetmatics, and other classroom skills to create slime art, learn 3D design, and uncover a few mysteries along the way.
Crafting, Creating, and Cooking
The GSB campus offers truly exciting exploration. In this program, Preschool to Kindergarteners partner with our teacher nature expert to discover materials across campus to use for craft projects. Students also have the opportunity for age-appropriate, allergy-conscious cooking activities to learn about fruits, vegetables, and other delicious treats.
GSB Chess Program
GSB has a proud and storied school chess program thanks in large part to the skills and strategy students learn from a young age. The Lower School After School Chess program is supervised by Farai Mandizha, an internationally renowned player, coach, and four-time Chess Olympian. In these sessions, players of all skill levels learn basic chess principles as well as important lessons in critical thinking, decision making, pattern recognition, problem solving, and sportsmanship.
Each year, 1st through 6th graders dive into stagecraft as they practice, rehearse, and ultimately perform a one-of-a-kind musical in GSB's Performing Arts Center. Past musicals have included Frozen, Finding Nemo, and The Wizard of Oz.
Knights on the Run
Lower School students join Veteran Track & Field Coach Leo to stay active and have fun in a series of track and field games and competitions.
There is so much to see and appreciate about our beautiful community. In After School Art, students from Preschool to 4th Grade work on their fine motor skills, organizational skills as well as developing their creative side to create works of art in and outside of the classroom through a variety of mediums.
Crazy Eights Math
Math class just got a little more interesting. In this program, students run, jump, build, and make a mess as they get into mischeif-making activities like Glow in the Dark Geometry, Bouncy Dice, and Toilet Paper Olympics.
