Chapel & Assembly

CHAPEL & SPirituality 

We value each student's spiritual journey and embrace all people and cultures. We make time for prayer, reflection, creative worship, music, world cultures, social justice, and student leadership. We offer a variety of chapels for Grades K-3 and Grades 4-8. Our Episcopal identity guides us to embrace all faith traditions. Chapel speakers of all ages and walks of life share their experiences in relatable ways. Student-led chapel services for Grades 4-8 are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays (9:15-10) each month in the sanctuary. Parents and families are invited.


Assemblies are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month replacing chapel services. During assembly, we highlight student achievements and birthdays. We also have themed programs that are relevant to civic issues, holidays, family, and community service. For more information, please contact Elizabeth Coleman at

National African American Read-In

On Wednesday, February 24, GSES participated in the National African American Read-In, which is an effort to encourage communities to read together, centered around African American books and authors. It was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month. The goal of an African American Read-In is to elevate and celebrate books written by Black authors that highlight Black experiences. Please watch as some of our students talk about Langston Hughes and read a few of his poems.
