It's time to begin thinking about next school year!

At CGE, almost all grade levels departmentalize, which means students will work with all grade-level teachers in different subjects. If you would like to provide parent input on your child's placement, please email Ms. Pietrocci at and explain your child's learning style and social strengths/needs, no later than April 14. The staff will roster students based on gender, academic ability, behavior, Special Education needs and English Language Learner needs, and parent input. 

Feel free to visit classrooms next week March 13-17 from 8-10 am.  

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, you simply fill out the letter of intent form, update your child's profile sheet, and return both documents to your classroom teacher by Friday, March 24.

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 14, 15, 16 from 8:30am to 2:30pm 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.

If you have any questions, please call the office at 467-4700.
