Gables Weekly Summary


Family-School Relationships Survey

Parents and guardians, please take 10-15 minutes to complete the Family-School Relationships Survey. Families with children at more than one school should complete one survey for their oldest child in each school.

With the school year underway, we want to hear from you! Your feedback is critical. Please provide your honest thoughts to help us better understand your family’s preferences and needs at this time so we can best support you and your child.

To access the survey, visit or click the "Family-School Relationships Survey" button above, select your child’s school from the dropdown menu and click “Take this survey.” All responses are completely anonymous and will help us to plan programs, resources, and services for the remainder of this school year.

CCS School Choice

Did you know that every elementary and middle school building is a little different than others? While all CCS schools have the same academic standards, each building can have a little different feel or focus. Some buildings focus on STEM, some on reading, some have ESL programs, some have gifted programs, etc. Middle school can be a great time to explore school choice options for your child. If you are interested in exploring school choice options within CCS, you can get general information and view the video profiles of each Middle School here. Elementary School profiles are not yet available but will be when the application window opens.

Reminder about Remote Learning

In the event Gables needs to transition to remote learning, sometimes a last-minute decision will be made. These will be handled similarly to a snow day: Families will receive an email, robocall and it will be broadcast on the news/CCS website. Thank you for your flexibility during this time as we all work to weather this new wave of COVID-19. If you have technical difficulties logging in remotely, please contact your child's teacher.

Student Guide to Success booklets

Thank you for returning the Student Guide to Success booklets! If you haven't yet completed your child's, please do so. Remember to print your child's name clearly in the spaces provided. It's helpful if you also write their name on the front cover as well.
