Report Cards

Report cards will be available for families to view in the Parent Portal on March 22nd at 1:00PM.


Please note: some report card descriptors are ungraded in the second trimester. These descriptors will be gray or they will be left blank. In mathematics, there are many new additional skills that students will be learning. Therefore, the descriptor is ungraded, for now. In reading, the information on the indicator is incorporated into another indicator.


We look forward to seeing you soon!

"Show me 5!" and "Mustang of the Day"

We are pleased to announce two awards for our Magnificent Mustangs.


Students can earn "Show me 5" cards for displaying one of our 5 Gayman Mustang character traits: Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, Cooperation, and Perseverance. Then, once a week, one child's name is pulled from each grade to earn a Magnificent Mustang wrist band.


Everyday, one child will earn the award "Mustang of the Day". This special award is given to one child from an adult at Gayman. These students will be invited to participate in a special event with Mrs. Carter at the end of the trimester.


Congratulations for showing extraordinary character!

Kindergarten Registration

It's time to register for Kindergarten!


Click here for the CBSD Kindergarten Registration page including necessary documents to gather in order to register your kindergarten students.


Once your child is registered, then tell us about your son/daughter! We invite you to complete our Kindergarten Welcome Survey found on our New Families Resources Page.


NOTE: Requests for morning or afternoon kindergarten are determined on a first come - first serve basis. Priority is also given to a request with a documented need by the parents' employers.

Attendance

Parents and guardians are able to submit an absence request via the Parent Portal. When a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, a text message and email will be sent.


All attendance questions can be directed to Christine Stevens, cstevens@cbsd.org, in the Gayman Office.

Volunteer Now

To volunteer or chaperone, your clearances must be up-to-date.


If your clearances are current, upload them into the App Garden - Volunteer Tracker. If your clearances have expired, or you need to begin the clearance process, click on the Required Documents for the directions.
