National Indigenous History Month
June is National Indigenous History Month and CGS is taking these last days of the school year to explore the rich and diverse cultures, voices and histories of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. Our Early Start class was introduced to Indigenous History month with a beautiful story called ‘You Hold Me Up’ by Monique Gray Smith and Danielle Daniel. This is a beautiful story about building relationships, fostering empathy and encouraging respect between peers.
The Grade 1 STEM challenge this week was ‘The Earthquake Challenge’. The students were tasked with creating a two-story building that could withstand an “earthquake”. They had fun collaborating and making sturdy structures that managed to withstand the test!
Our extracurricular clubs are ending this week. It’s been a fantastic term with soccer clubs, movin & groovin’ club, hockey club and our first french song club in 2 years!
Our Principal’s Club is all ready to distribute their playdough fundraiser orders. CGS families can expect delivery information to be emailed very soon.
We were thrilled to welcome our current parents into our classrooms. Students had special presentations ready for the visits and were so pleased to show off their work and their learning space. We also held two Open House dates for our incoming parents. It’s been wonderful to be able to show off our facilities and the fantastic work that these bright CGS stars have been doing throughout the school year. Special THANK YOU! to our amazing CGS teaching staff for their caring, skilled work with our students and for the thought and detail that went into the parent visit preparations.
