First Day of School – Noon Dismissal

August 28 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Welcome to the first day of school.  Some of you are excited to be here and some of you are probably wishing it was still summer.  That’s totally understandable, everyone needs to adjust to the routine of being back in school.  But before getting wrapped up in the day to day, take a few moments to reflect on what is expected of you this new school year. 

Here at CGS we have a nurturing community, where you are gifted with supportive families and dedicated teachers. However, as wonderful as they may be, these adults who care so much about you cannot make you succeed unless you do your part.  So take this time to make a commitment to yourself, to focus on the responsibility you have to yourself, to your education.  Come to school ready to pay attention to your teachers. Understand that becoming good at something takes hard work.  Commit to doing that work.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask for help.  Even if you’re struggling or discouraged, don’t give up on yourself.  You won’t necessarily Ace everything the first time you try – and that’s ok – it means you need to spend more time and try harder.

You make your own future.  Your teachers and your families are here to support and nurture you, but the drive, the effort and the work to succeed come from you.  Think about that and start off this year with the commitment to make us and yourselves proud.
