Centerton Gamble's Newsletter for October 2019

The Principal's Perspective

Welcome to Fall! Centerton Gamble students and staff have enjoyed settling into routines and are having a lot of fun learning!

We are looking forward to sharing fun and laughter on October 18th at our PTO sponsored Fall Festival. This event will be held here at CGES from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Please check our calendar for information regarding PTO meetings, family nights, and other campus events. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved at Gamble! Clicking on the October calendar below will route you directly to our school's website. We update the website calendar throughout the month, so please check it frequently!!

We take the safety and security of our students very seriously. Please be reminded that if you need to visit with a teacher, the quickest method of contact is an email. Visitors to our campus are required to present a state-issued photo identification prior to entering the building. Should a 1:1 meeting be necessary, appointments must be scheduled in advance. This helps us keep our building secure and allows teachers to engage with students without an interruption to learning.

As an added security precaution, students arriving after car-duty personnel have entered the building must be escorted inside and signed-in/out in the office.

Teachers will be scheduling Parent/Teacher conferences soon. We look forward to having 100% participation!! Teachers will also be sending home information about our Fall Parties!

Please be sure to contact our office if you have questions or concerns. Happy Fall!

Mr. Randall Hunt, Principal

The Counselors' Corner


Our counseling focus for the month of October is Bullying, Empathy and Kindness. We will be going into classrooms to help students realize the importance of empathy and kindness in order to erase all forms of bullying. We at CGES take this very seriously. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

We have also attached two documents below which we hope you find helpful. One is describing our Big Idea of the month which is Courage. We talk about our Big Ideas every morning during announcements. We encourage you as a family to work with us on promoting each Big Idea.

The second attachment is our home and school connection. We hope this provides you with some useful information concerning how we work together in order for your child to be happy and successful.

Thanks for all you do!

Welcome to the CGE Makerspace!!

Here at CGE, we are excited to bring the world of maker education to our students. So what does it mean to have a maker mindset? We hope that through maker centered learning, students will develop creative confidence along with the ability to solve problems, collaborate, develop critical thinking, and communication.

Thank you SO much for sending in recyclable materials! Because our families are SO wonderful, we are set with recyclable items for the timebeing. We will begin collecting recylables again in the future as our stockpile dwindles down!

We would like to now focus on collecting unused consumable materials, such as:

  • Playdough
  • Tape (scotch, masking, duct tape, packing tape, painters tape (different colors))
  • Scissors
  • Glue (White glue, glue sticks)
  • Legos
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Twist Ties
  • Cardstock (White or Color)
  • Markers
  • Sharpies
  • Hair dryer

If you are a vendor in our community and would like to sponsor our Maker Space, please contact Mrs. Loomis at

Thank you for all you do!!!
