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.

September 17-21, 2018

Dear families,

Thanks again to those whom were able to attend our Family Orientation meetings. We appreciate you taking the time to sit down with teachers in order to share a little about the students. If you were unable to make it last week, I encourage you to step into the hallways and take a look at the thoughtful work being done. Teachers and students have been engaged in some rigorous work with regards to our Go Girls program and much of that work has been captured on our bulletin boards.  Please feel free to come check it out.

I’m happy to report there is a lot going on as we find ourselves back into the everyday routines of the new school year. Classroom programming is in full swing and extra curricular activities around the school are beginning:

  • Rehearsals for the school drama production of Edwina are underway
  • Lakeview choir rehearsals begin next week
  • Debate club will be starting next week
  • Cross-country practices are ongoing and the first of three meets takes place this Wednesday
  • Volleyball tryouts are complete and the season is about to get underway

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank families for their understanding and patience as the school continues with its transition to a Google for Education platform. We are working hard to consolidate school information and student learning updates in response to parent feedback. Google for Education offers us an intuitive platform with which families can access information through one portal. You can expect that teachers will soon be inviting you into their Google Classrooms in order to share information about the learning, upcoming events, and student progress.

Don’t forget about Tuesday’s School Council meeting at the Lakeview campus, starting at 7:00 pm. All CGS parents are part of the School Council so I invite you to come join us.

Have a great week.
