Community Service

Community Service is structured into the weekly curriculum to emphasize the importance of regular community involvement. Sixth graders volunteer with Horizons at GFA and host a Halloween carnival for Lower School students. Seventh graders tutor in the Bridgeport schools, visit an eldercare facility in Norwalk, and maintain the Audubon wilderness trails and school greenhouse. Eighth graders work at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and prepare Thanksgiving food baskets. An annual Bike-a-thon at Sherwood Island State Park raises funds for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

Coffeehouse

Held once a year, this English Department tradition gives our talented students the opportunity to share an original written piece (poem or short story) or perform a musical selection for parents and peers in a casual and supportive setting. In past, performers have included readers from the seventh and eighth grade classes and musical performers from all grades (a cappella singing, guitar, and piano). While students are often celebrated on the athletic fields, in performing arts concerts,and in academic settings, the Coffeehouse tradition gives emerging artists and writers a chance to share their creative talents in an evening that celebrates art and the written word.
