Notes From the Office

Parent Portal: Parent Portal is a secure web-based student management system designed to strengthen communication between the school and home. It provides parents and legal guardians online access to their children's progress in school as well as their attendance. Parents are also able to pay fees as well as register for the upcoming school year directly from their parent portal account. Parents will receive an Access ID and password from their child’s school. Use the materials provided (LINK) or contact your school office for more information.

Report Cards Available: Our Term 1 Report Cards are now available online on Parent Portal. If you require a paper copy of your student's Report Card, please contact their teacher.

December Family Challenge: Habit #1 is all about personal responsibility. Proactive families focus on being proactive vs reactive. This time of the year can be overwhelmingly busy for everyone. Practice being proactive at home by creating a family calendar to prevent reacting to surprise events. Create a calendar with your family. Post a picture in the comments on the Christina Gordon Facebook page to be entered into our draw for a LIM prize! Here is a link to a calendar: LINK.

Christmas Concert Dates: The dates of our annual Christmas Concerts are as follows:

- Early Years: December 15th (10:00 am and 1:30 pm)

- Div. 1: December 13th (6:00 pm)

- Div. 2: December 14th (6:00 pm)

VIP Parking: For the week of December 5th, we will be holding a silent auction via our Facebook page for VIP parking during each Christmas Concert. The top bids get VIP parking spots right outside in the drop off lane. To enter, use the following LINK.

Reward Day: Students have successfully completed our Clean Classroom WIG (Wildly Important Goal) for the month of November. As a result, the students in Grade 3B have earned a classroom reward. This Friday, December 9th, students will be having a bottle flipping contest. We are asking students and families who have clean, plastic bottles available, please send them to school with your student on Friday. We will use them for the activity and in our upcoming entry into CG's annual door decorating contest.
