Pi Day

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat pie.

March is Reading Month

We are currently reading The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles! This book was written by Julie Andrews Edwards, known actress in movies such as Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, and The Princess Diaries. Students will have time to unleash their imaginations in reading this adventurous book by writing or drawing pictures as they read (or are being read to). We hope you enjoy the story. You can follow the pacing calendar to finish the book in four weeks, using weekends to catch up, if needed.

Updated Contact Information

If your contact information or your child's emergency contacts have changed over the course of the school year, please be sure to contact the main office to update your information. Valid contact information is vital this year in the event that your child becomes ill at school or if we need to make contact with you.

Yearbook Orders

This year, due to COVID and the restrictions in place, you will be able to order a CIS yearbook online at: Ordering online will help to keep down the exchange of paper and money between GPI, the students and the school. The cost of each yearbook is $10.00. Online ordering will be available up until the yearbook goes to print (we will let you know when that happens). After the yearbook is printed you will still be able to order a yearbook, but there will be a shipping fee and it will be mailed directly to the address you provide when ordering. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Please Wash Your Masks!
