The Past Couple of Weeks!
Dear CGES Family,
I want to take a moment to discuss some of the highlights from the past couple of weeks. During this time, we have had visits from the Animal Shelter, performed violin concerts, broke fundraising records, and kicked-off our Clubs! First graders had a visit from the local Animal Shelter in order to learn about the many things they do for our community. Of course, the highlight of this talk was the kitten that made the trip! I want to congratulate the entire 2nd grade for their amazing violin concerts. It is truly amazing to see how much these young students are able to learn in such a short time. I also want to give a huge shout out to the entire CGES community for their participation in the PTO Marcos Spirit Night! We broke records! This past Friday also marked the kick-off for Clubs this year. Our students did a great job participating and engaging in many different club activities that included Project Outreach, Spanish Club, robotics, chess, and many more. Here's to a great October!
