A Message from the Principal

CGE Family,

It certainly has been a year of growth here at CGE. I am incredibly proud of the continued excellence our students, teachers and staff have exhibited. This has been possible as a result of the support we receive from all of our CGE families and our community. We wish everyone a wonderful end of the school year and a memorable SUMMER VACATION.

Sunshine State Young Reader Award (SSYRA) Program

Our Sunshine State Young Reader Award program was a big hit this year. Students have been reading SSYRA books, completing reading logs, and earning brag tags for their efforts. We had over 500 students vote for their favorite SSYRA book. And the winners for CGE are....

  • K-2 Favorite: The Last Firehawk: The Ember Stone by Katrina Charman
  • 3-5 Favorite: Lemons by Melissa Savage

Congrats to all of our students for participating in this program. We can't wait to start reading next year's SSYRA books. Check out the 2019-2020 list for K-2 and 3-5.
