Principal’s Message

The girls and young women of CGS are agents of change who develop
confidence and a strong sense of self in a safe, collaborative, inquiry-based learning environment.

November 12-16, 2018

Dear families:

Thank you to those that were able to join us for the Remembrance Day assembly on November 8th. We are grateful that you were able to experience in the meaningful learning that teachers guided students through in preparation for the event.

Another thank you to School Council for hosting a viewing of the documentary, ScreenAgers last Thursday evening here at the school. Definitely a great deal to think about when we consider teenagers and screen time.

Student-led conferences will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 22nd and during the day of Friday, November 23rd. Families will be able to book a time to attend through the CGS Conference Manager as of Wednesday evening at 6:00pm. We look forward to seeing everybody there.

Volleyball season has now wrapped up and I’m extremely happy to report CGS brought home the silver medal. We’re all extremely proud of the players and the coaches, so when you see them in the halls please be sure to pass along congratulations. Big thank you to the parents as well for those rides to the games and the pick-ups from the school after practices.

Griffin Spirit Gear can be worn as an addition to the PE uniform as well as on outdoor field trips or during sporting events. Order through your Family Zone account. First order will be placed on November 18th.
