The Principals' Perspective

Happy Holidays to our Colt families. December is here. This is one of the most exciting months of the year for children (and adults), and we have several festive activities planned. Please be sure to check the CGES website calendar (linked directly below), as we update the calendar throughout the month. You can also check for updates on Facebook. Please contact your child's teacher regarding classroom holiday parties.


Before you know it, we will be out for Winter Break. We hope that everyone has time to bond with family and friends. There are many fun ways to continue helping children learn over break. You might read classic books and share wonderful stories, use numbers and measurement as favorite dishes are being prepared, or practice writing by composing thank-you notes!


We want to thank YOU for the daily support your provide. We could not do our jobs without you, and we sincerely wish you all a blessed holiday season.
