Student Led Conferences Parent Survey

Your feedback is very important to us! Please consider completing the SLC Survey GHR March 2023 if you haven’t already!

Rock your socks!

Please help us spread awareness for Down Syndrome by wearing colorful and/or mismatched socks tomorrow! March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day! March 21 is symbolic because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome. Socks were chosen because the karyotype of Ds chromosomes actually looks like mismatched socks!  

Dollars for Scholars March Madness Coin Drive

Each year the Coventry Scholarship Foundation, Dollars for Scholars program, conducts a coin drive at CGS & GHR. While this is a "coin collection", dollars and checks made out to Coventry Scholarship Foundation will gladly be accepted. Students can bring in loose change, dollars or checks from March 20th to 24th. Prizes will be awarded to the top contributing class in each grade level!
