Principal’s Message ~ June 2018

June 28, 2018

A few weeks ago I read a blog by Karell Roxas that made me think of all of our CGS families heading off for a two month long summer holiday. I hope Karell won’t mind me paraphrasing parts of her article, making it relevant for our school community, as I feel it is a valuable…

Another Year Done

Thank you to S. for asking her friends to purchase a…

Thank you to Our Amazing Parent Volunteers!

June 8, 2018

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We can’t say it enough. Without the hard work of the PA Executive, and all of our parent volunteers, CGS community life would not be nearly as rich as it is. From Fall Family Fun Night to CGS Mum’s Night Out (to only name two of the many events…
