Dragons Give Green 2022: Dragons Choose!

Make our wishlist come true.


Each year, Glens and Elgs compete in the annual tradition of the All-School Relay, and we all come together as Dragons to Give Green in support of our school. This year, you can choose how you want to Give Green!


GCS faculty, administrators, staff, and students have identified a variety of projects representing all divisions and areas of the school. These are all items and programs that can have a significant impact for our community; they have been identified as priorities for the school to fund in years to come as the school operating budget permits. Your support of these efforts today will allow them to happen NOW, or in the very immediate future. That is giving in action!


Check out the available projects below. Click the “Choose This Project” button for more information; you will be taken to a page with details about each project and how to make your gift. 


On Wednesday, May 25, follow our GCS Facebook feed for livestreaming of Field Day events and other surprises. And don’t miss the All-School Relay livestreamed at 2:45 p.m. on the GCS YouTube page.
