Back to School Picnic

Saturday, August 26, 2023, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm ET

Join us on Saturday, August 26, at GISB’s Upper Campus, 57 Holton Street, Boston. Come on by, meet new and old friends, attend the family info fair, and connect before the first day of school!

All GISB families and staff are welcome to attend! Please bring a picnic blanket and a cake, pie, or your favorite (nut-free) snack to share with the community. In order to support the school’s sustainability efforts, please also consider bringing your own plates, silverware, and cups. Beverages will be provided. Weather permitting, we will also have sprinklers set up, so please pack extra clothing.

During the first hour of the Back-to-School Picnic, families have the opportunity to stop by the Family Info Fair to meet representatives from different groups in our school community. This is a great opportunity for new and returning families to speak to school community representatives directly, ask questions, and learn about the many ways you can get involved in our school.

Please note that there will be no parking available on school grounds, so please plan accordingly. Families can park in the neighborhood or at the Artesani Playground Parking Lot.

In the case of inclement weather, the event will be canceled. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children.
