"Stone Soup" day is a longstanding tradition at GSB. Started more than 30 years ago by some of our Lower School faculty, it was intended to teach our children about the importance of sharing as well as educate everyone in the community of how fortunate we are. Being thankful, giving to others in need, making a difference; all these things are talked about on this day. The youngest student in the school – this year it was Judith Brooks – dropped the soup stone in the pot before the various vegetables were added.

Today marks the formal start of community service efforts at the school, although we have already had a number of such activities taking place since September.
