Clubs & Organizations
With students at the center of every program, Gunston actively seeks to train young people to be good citizens and to be leaders in their society. Leadership is a skill that can be taught, and students at Gunston have the opportunity to work closely with adult mentors who will help them develop and direct personally meaningful activities both in and outside their school. The network of young leaders blossoms in a nourishing environment that encourages students to fully engage in their passions, and classmates recognize and celebrate the contributions of each of their peers. Below are several of the opportunities available at Gunston, giving everyone a chance for visibility and support as they try on leadership roles in our community:
On Saturday, November 19th, Gunston’s Academic Team traveled to Georgetown University for an all-day regional tournament.
The GIVE Club's flag football fundraiser last week raised more than $180 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A big thank you to all who participated!
Gunston's Academic Team attended the Johns Hopkins University Invitational Academic Tournament on Saturday, September 17th. Eleven team members participated in an 8-round tournament answering general knowledge questions against some of the top students in the DC/Baltimore region. Each team came away with several wins during the tournament, and Senior Zach Mozher (Middletown), was the 6th highest scorer in a field of 60 students.
More than 40 students and guests enjoyed a picnic-style BBQ with music, crafts, and games. Students created the theme and coined the acronym S.L.A.Y (Super Lit Amazing Youth). "We wanted to do something to kick off Pride Month and create an opportunity for students from other GSA groups to get together with their peers," said Dr. Asprion, the club advisor.
A convoy of classic motor cars made their way down Gunston’s tree-lined drive on Wednesday, May 19 to deliver the 2021-2022 Yearbooks to students and faculty/staff. Led by yearbook editor Lucy Bamford ’22 and staff, the day’s reveal was carefully coordinated and kept a secret from the rest of school. Students enjoyed ice cream and a picnic on the lawn while signing yearbooks.
The GSA Club presented at the March BGSI Conference and Joanna Riley ’24 and Annabelle Sinatra ’24 led youth family groups at the April Middle School Student Diversity in Leadership Conference.
Congratulations to Gunston's Academic Team, which competed in the Centennial Academic Tournament on Saturday, March 5th. The team is preparing for its trip to the NAQT Small School National Championships in Chicago in April.
