When your child’s birthday rolls around you may be looking for alternative ways to deal with gifts. The Birthday Book program at CGS is a nice option for parents looking for a way to model the art of giving and sharing in place of receiving. Thank you to Valentina, our first Birthday Book donator this year! Thank you to Valentina’s parents and our very generous Grade 1 families too. In lieu of birthday presents, Valentina and her parents asked that her friends purchase books to be donated to the CGS Library for use in her classroom. Valentina showed up this week with a big bag of beautiful books! The children loved sharing the books with each other! They will be well loved for years to come. Donated books are marked with a sticker with the birthday girl or boy’s name on it, the birthday boy or girl also receives a special CGS bookmark. If you would like to make a donation for your child’s next birthday, please contact Zandee.
