Registration News for 2018 - 19

posted Mar 15, 2018, 8:37 AM by Jessie Lawrence

You will receive the following two 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 Intent to Return form, update your child's Profile Sheet, and return both documents to your classroom teacher by Monday, March 26. We encourage you to return the forms before Spring Break.
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 at their new school. Registration times and dates are available here on the SFPS website. 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 stating this.

posted Mar 1, 2018, 8:20 AM by Jessie Lawrence

CGE Green Team is wrapping up their STEM-based school site investigation from Project Learning Tree on waste reduction and recycling. The team's efforts and findings have contributed to Carlos Gilbert officially joining Santa Fe Public School's lunchroom composting program! This program will be run in partnership with our local, non-profit composting facility, Reunity Resources

Many thanks to Lisa Randal from SFPS's Sustainability Program and Juliana Ciano of Reunity Resources for making this happen at our school. 

Lisa and Juliana will be in the lunchroom on Launch Day, February 28th, to help the students and staff with the new process of clearing compostable items from their trays into designated bins. The food scraps will be processed at Reunity Resources' facility into amazing, healthy dirt that students will then use to prepare spring planting beds in the school garden. Full circle!
