STEPHEN GAYNOR SCHOOL

Congratulations to the Class of 2017!

After another successful and productive academic year at Gaynor came to a close on Thursday, June 15, it was time to bid farewell to the graduating class and send them off with best wishes. On Friday, June 16, faculty, staff, graduates, and their friends and family gathered in the Gaynor Gymnasium for graduation and the class of 30 were recognized for their achievements and hard work in speeches from Board President Henrietta Jones-Pellegrini, Trustee and Gaynor parent Scott Mager, Head of School Dr. Scott Gaynor, and Gaynor alumnus Nick Kenner ’90.

EC Students Explore and Practice Social Justice

The preschool students in Gaynor’s Early Childhood program (EC) do everything from drawing pictures to listening quietly during story time, but what about learning about complex subjects like social justice, racism, segregation, and the life and significance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? This spring, students in the Purple Cluster learned about those topics through a series of unique, multi-sensory lessons.

Getting Creative with Art and Technology

This week, a new friend appeared in the North Lobby, prompting some questions: Is this art? Technology? Artificial intelligence? Turns out, the figure is an art and technology collaboration project undertaken by students in the Yellow Cluster. The one thing missing? A name!

Spring Photography at Gaynor

Throughout the spring semester, students have been producing great photography including portraits, candids, and landscapes.
