CGE January Newsletter
Happy New Year CGE Families!
I hope that winter break allowed you all to spend time together as a family and enjoy some time away from the routine of the school week. We are excited to keep moving forward in person as much as possible throughout the next two trimesters. That is our priority.
Enjoy the weekend!

Update for 2nd and 3rd grade families: CogAT Results
Before winter break, 2nd and 3rd grade students took the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT). The CogAT, along with other assessment data, can help your child’s teachers better support their strengths and areas for growth. The timeline for testing and results has been extended. CogAT scores will be shared with families by the end of February.
The word of the month for January is Courageous
The definition of Courageous is
the ability to do something that frightens one
strength in the face of pain or grief
Here is a link with some fun and creative ways to teach Courage to children!
