Our first Parents Association (PA) meeting of the school year was a major success! Thank you to all parents who came out to our first meeting of the year! We had some new members joining us this year, as every year a few parents stand as representation for each class grade.
Remember all CGS parents are automatically members of the PA! The more the merrier when it come to organizing and contributing to to the school life of your child and their education here at CGS! We invite everyone to join this great group of parents where there are always ways you may be able to contribute! Join us on the first Wednesday mornings of each month from 9 am to 10 am for our monthly PA meetings, in person and virtual attendance is available!
The PA already has an busy planned agenda of fun filled events for the year, like our Fall Family Fun Night in October, our Purdy’s Chocolate Fundraiser before Christmas, and the most anticipated return of our CGS Gala in May, just to name a few! With jobs big and small any volunteered contribution is very welcome and encouraged!
The PA always out does themselves and this year their contributions have made a significant impact on our school! We have a new educational “Loose Part Kits” resource for all of our students to use which was purchased from Brickworks Canada and Just Be Woodsy! Our Teachers explored different ways to incorporate these kits through their first PD Day. They have also generously provided sponsorship towards a new school laminator for teachers to use to support their teaching resources in class, a new drying rack for all our student art work, and additional iPad docking stations and storage! These investments have not only enriched the lives of our students but have also strengthened the bonds within our school student community.
Please join CGS in taking a moment to express our deepest gratitude for the PAs generous contributions to our school. We wouldn’t have such an incredible school with out you! There is a whole year ahead and we are so excited for all the PA contributions, special events, and community involvement! Their unwavering support and dedication to enhancing the educational experience for our students is truly remarkable, and we cannot thank them enough!
