Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The Class of 2020 is a special group for many reasons, but most importantly, they exemplify what it means to Be C-G. They are a group of well-rounded individuals that carry themselves with maturity and have always demonstrated a deep sense of empathy for others and their community. On top of that, they were an absolute joy to be around and had so much pride in our school and our traditions. They deserve

a huge "thank you" for all they have brought to our school and our community.
