Dear School Family,

I am honored to have the privilege of working with your students, cheering them on through the good times as well as supporting and holding them up through the harder, more difficult moments.

Our staff is very excited about the great things happening this school year! We have spent time looking at the performance data for the students and planning ways to continue our focus on the important skills of reading and math as well as the ways each student expresses him/herself and looks at his or her world. This has led us to the essential job of planning instruction to meet each unique need and learning style. Even more importantly, we have been praying for your children individually, and the ways we can support them as they develop their own personal relationships with Jesus.

Consistent communication occurs through the school’s newsletters which are printed each week and come home on Thursdays. In addition, we will email it to any family that has given us an email address. In addition, not only will extra copies will also be available in the school office, but the newsletter is also uploaded to this website and RenWeb each week.

I would also like to encourage you to become an active member of our Home and School Association. This is an important link for building bridges between your home and your child’s classroom. We believe that your attendance at meetings is an important part of learning about our school and finding ways that you can partner with us to help ensure your child’s success.

On behalf of the entire CGCS staff, we want to welcome you and your child to Captain Gilmer Christian School. Please know that we are committed to the education and success of each child and to establishing a strong partnership between your home and your school.
