2019-20 Registration Process 
You will receive the following 2 documents in this Thursday Folder: Intent to Return form and a Student Profile Sheet.  

If you are returning to CGE, simply fill out the letter of intent form, update your child's profile sheet, and return both documents to your classroom teacher by

If you will not be returning to CGE next school year (including 6th graders moving to another SFPS school), you will need to register your child for that new school at CGE. Registration times are March 11, 12, and 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the front office.

If your child is planning to attend a private or charter school next year, simply return the letter of intent to your child's teacher.

Should Your Child Be in a Booster Seat?

posted Mar 5, 2019, 11:02 AM by Sarah LeBlanc

NM law states that if a child is at least 7 years old and weighs more than 60 pounds, he or she may shed the car seat and ride in a booster seat. The law also states that children ages 7 to 12 must ride in a booster seat until the adult seat belt fits them properly. How do you know if the seat belt fits?
If your child is NOT riding in a booster seat, try this 5-step test:
  1. Does the child sit all the way back against the vehicle seat?
  2. Do the child's knees bend comfortably at the edge of the vehicle seat?
  3. Is the lap belt below the tummy, touching the thighs?
  4. Is the shoulder belt centered on the shoulder and chest?
  5. Can the child stay seated like this for the entire trip?
If you answered "no" to any of these questions, your child needs a booster seat to ride more safely in the car. Riding in a booster seat is more comfortable, too! See details on NM seat belt laws.

Education Technology Note Ballot Vote

posted Feb 6, 2019, 3:52 PM by Jessie Lawrence

An education technology note (ETN) is a legislative funding vehicle that allows public schools to use local tax dollars to fund District technology initiatives. Your money stays in the community, shared with both public and charter schools. The 2019 Ed Tech Note (ETN) uses tax dollars to fund District technology initiatives for all public schools, including charters. The ETN supports computer literacy for all students.

Taxes will NOT increase. This is just a renewal of the 2016 ETN. This is Santa Fe's FIRST EVER Mail-In Vote. Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters on Feb 5. Ballots are due in the Santa Fe County Clerk's Office on March 5 (by 7 pm) and can be delivered to the Santa Fe County Clerk's Office.

ALL SFPS 7th - 12th-grade students are provided a take-home laptop to enhance learning. 86% of SFPS students feel their classroom technology has prepared them better for their future. Santa Fe was designated a TechHire region (2016) and joined a national cohort of cities mobilizing the Tech economy. Without ETN funding, SFPS and the charters will lose $11 million dollars per year; students will lose valuable classroom services, and educational staff positions will be in jeopardy.
