A New Series from the CGCS Community
Calgary Girls Charter School is more than just two buildings filled with classrooms. We are a strong community of women and men who are educators, volunteers, parents, mentors, and caregivers for our girls.
We celebrate our girls’ victories together. We lift each other up through challenges and we share the things that inspire us and make us laugh.
With the spirit of sharing in mind, CGCS has launched a new “Interview Series”.
We are asking members of our community:
What are you reading? What are you watching? What are you listening to?
What inspires you?
Welcome new families and students to CGCS
Looking forward to welcoming new families to CGCS for the upcoming school year. For more information call 403-220-0745.
