Kindness, February's Word of the Month

Kind people show concern for others and are helpful, generous, and considerate. They often do nice things without expecting nice things in return.

Help connect social emotional learning (SEL) at home with school by encouraging your Gator to display Kindness and maybe be selected for Student of the Month in their class!

REMINDERS - Don't forget!

Remote Learning

In the event Gables needs to transition to remote learning, sometimes a last-minute decision will be made. These will be handled similarly to a snow day: Families will receive an email, robocall and it will be broadcast on the news/CCS website. Thank you for your flexibility during this time as we all work to weather this new wave of COVID-19. If you have technical difficulties logging in remotely, please contact your child's teacher.

CCS and Gables Events Next Week

Big picture
Each CCS student along with one parent/caregiver gets free weekend General Admission to the Columbus Museum of Art in February (Saturdays and Sundays 10am - 5pm). If you want to visit during the first weekend in February (the end of the Van Gogh exhibit), call 614.221.6801 to reserve your Pathways Express ticket. Be prepared to pay a fee to add the Van Gogh exhibit (no free admission to this) if you want to see that, but you are not required to attend (and thus pay for) that exhibit if you do not wish to.

CCS Community Partners will be on site February 12 with games and prizes. See the Pathways Express site for more info.
