This February is a special month, with 29 days because of Leap Year.  In case your child asks, here is some information I located regarding the reasons behind Leap Year:   "Even though the standard calendar year is 365 days, Earth actually takes 365 days 5 hours 48 minutes and 46 seconds to go completely around the sun. (This is called a solar year.) In order to keep the calendar cycle synchronized with the seasons, one extra day is (usually) added every four years as February 29."

Below is a list of all the exciting opportunities, activities and events we have planned for February. We hope to see CGS students, staff, friends and community members at our events!

This school year is proving to be an exciting one with many opportunities for students to experience high quality instruction.  We have Chromebooks for every student in grades 2-8, iPads in grades K-1, a progressive new reading curriculum and valuable interventions to help our students meet success.  Students have attended PBIS expectations assemblies to review expectations and show their B.E.S.T throughout the day.  Students are encouraged to Be responsible, Express respect, show Safety first and work Together.  We promote showing kindness toward others, and acknowledge expected behaviors when demonstrated.  I am encouraged and inspired by the small, kind acts our amazing students show!
