CGS News for the Week of November 22, 2021

Posted Date: 11/22/2021

Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating this week, and happy long weekend to everyone else!

Homework Study

During the weeks of November 29-December 10, CGS students will have the chance to participate in a homework study that we are conducting. Students who elect to participate in the study will be entered into daily and weekly raffles (Dunkin Donuts gift cards) and, for students who submit the survey every day for two weeks, a final grand prize raffle of a $50 visa gift card. You’ll be able to sign up to start participating on November 29!  

Why this study? We want to have a rigorous and challenging curriculum, but we also want you, our students, to be healthy and well and get to spend time with your families. The results of this survey will help us understand how close we are to achieving this. Not only do we want to know if the amount of homework you have is realistic, but we also want to find out if our approaches to assignments are effective.


All attendance goes through our CGS Secretary, Tonia Taylor. If a student is going to be absent, tardy, or dismissed early please call: 203-852-9488 ext 11007 and leave a message that includes: 

  • Student name

  • Date of absence / tardiness / dismissal

  • Your name

  • If a student’s absence is related to Covid-19 in any way, please also contact the school nurse, Moira Lynch or Barbara Faccenda, at 203-852-9488 ext 11218.

Students should check Google Classroom and/or email their teachers for work when they are absent. *Any students who must quarantine while waiting for a negative Covid-19 test result must check in with teachers on Google Classroom by submitting classwork, leaving a private comment, or other means as specified by the teacher.
