Spring Academic Enrichment Class Registration Begins

May 7 @ 8:00 am - June 5 @ 5:00 pm

CGS Academic Enrichment Classes are open to all. This is a difficult time for everyone, but it can be particularly difficult for families with school-age children. While many schools are doing their best with limited resources, it is a fact that many children aren’t getting the kind of in-depth education that a classroom setting can provide.  Parents have expressed concern over learning loss and the impact on test scores.  And parents with 7th graders taking the MAP-NWEA this fall for…

Indigenous Peoples’ Day / Columbus Day – No Class

October 12

It used to be simple:  celebrate the discovery of America and enjoy the day off.  Today, it's more complicated; and that's a good thing.  That being said, we recognize that Indigenous Peoples' Day/Columbus Day classroom lessons must be developmentally appropriate:  we begin with identifying who, where and when before analyzing why.  All classes participate in activities that raise awareness of the rich history, culture, and traditions of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas.  And while our youngest students chant "Columbus…
