2017-2018 School Opening Information

posted Aug 9, 2017, 10:29 AM by Christopher Reeve

Dear CGS families,


I hope you are having a fun and relaxing summer!  I am very excited for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year to begin and to continue the excellent standard of education CGS students experience.  

There are a few important dates to share as we prepare to get our school year underway:

  • 8/15 is the kindergarten play date and meet and greet from 10:30-11:30 at the CGS Kindergarten Playground.

  • 8/15 is also the new student tour for incoming students grades 1-8.  All students new to the CGS can meet in the main lobby for a tour of the school from 10:00-10:30.


  • Open House schedules are as follows:

    Monday, August 28th

Kindergarten: 10:00am-11:00am

Grades 1-8: 11:00am-12:00pm ***(This is only for families that work 2nd or 3rd shift)***

Grades 1 and 2: 5:00pm-6:00pm

Grades 3 and 4: 6:00pm-7:00pm

   Tuesday, August 29th (also first day of school grades 1-8)

Grades 5 and 6: 5:00pm-6:00pm

Grades 7 and 8: 6:00pm-7:00pm

  • 8/29 is the first day of school for grades 1-8.  It is a full day for students.

  • 9/5  is the first day for  PreK and Kindergarten, also a full day for Kindergarten.

  • 9/5  8:45-9:15 am Tea & Tissues event for kindergarten parents in the café.

  • Because the additional time slot for 2nd and 3rd shift families was so successful, we will offer it once again.  This Open House time slot is  only for families that work 2nd or 3rd shift.  Though you may be free at that time as well, please attend the scheduled Open House for your child’s grade level if you do not work the 2nd or 3rd shift. Thanks for understanding and helping the CGS better support and communicate with all of our families!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at:

Mr. Reeve - (978) 722-9052 or crreeve@methuen.k12.ma.us

Mrs. McLaughlin, Upper School Associate Principal- (978) 722-9056 or mamclaughlin@methuen.k12.ma.us

Mrs. Proietti, Lower School Associate Principal- (978) 722-9054 or keproietti@methuen.k12.ma.us
