16 - November 29, 2020
Dear Parents,
We thank the CNG PTA for the lovely gratitude bracelets that they sent to families over this past week. These are lovely reminders to all of us to be mindful and express our gratitude to others. Thank you!

Please remember that PS/ES car riders or walkers should arrive on campus between 6:35 - 6:55 AM and be picked up between 11:20 - 11:35 AM. For MS/HS we would like to see car riders and walkers arrive on campus between 10:45-10:55 AM and depart between 3:30 - 3:45 PM.
Please note that if you are newly Opting In for Module Three, the deadline is Monday, November 30 by 8:00 PM. More information here.
We also want to remind parents that as one way to ensure our current biosecurity measures are protecting all staff and students, CNG will be using the turnstiles at gate entrances to restrict access to campus to those for whom any of the following requirements are missing:
  1. Daily Wellness Self-Check Form (students) 
  2. Health Survey
  3. Consent Form (by Signio)
  4. A Negative PCR Test Result
If a student is denied access, we have a back-up system in place to double-check the four requirements and contact parents, if necessary, to allow the child to remain on campus. 

We wish you a wonderful week!
CNG Thanksgiving
THANK YOU for an AMAZING CNG Thanksgiving 2020

Thank you to all the CNG families that contributed to the Thanksgiving Campaign! 

This year, the MS National Junior Honor Society and HS National Honor Society adapted our annual tradition to current circumstances. These students planned for a different kind of fundraiser and created a heartfelt presentation that has been looping on the campus TV’s to show our appreciation of these special workers that make CNG run smoothly day in and day out. See a short version of the presentation HERE.

Thanks to the CNG parent community that helped raise $38.425.000, Sodexo certificates will be gifted to 204 workers from CNG and 53 workers from Fundación Hogar Nueva Granada.  

National Junior Honor Society & National Honor Society Members and Faculty Advisors

Dear CNG Community, 
We are taking advantage of this week being Thanksgiving to share with you some great resources about gratitude that undoubtedly will lead to a happier and fulfilling life.

“Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy - because we will always want to have something else or something more”. Br. David Steindl - Rast

“Everything flourishes in the nourishment of our appreciation; plants, people, the Earth, moments. When we live with that appreciation, we flourish.” Kristie Nelson

If you would like to explore more resources for gratitude content with your family, you can go to the following links: https://gratefulness.org/ 30 days of gratitude 120 gratitude journal questions.

Remember, our counseling team is always here to support you, so don’t hesitate to reach out. 
Athletics & Condor Activities

Winter break is rapidly approaching, December begins this week! Just as we all focused on what we were thankful for last week, the Condor Activities and Athletics department would like to encourage our students to be thoughtful in finishing their semester strong. Condor Activities are inviting parents to take part in their child's final activity, which will be the last day of each class- starting from November 30 through December 4. We will be sending the invitation link and provide instructions if needed, prior to class. 

  • Condor Activities classes will end on Friday, December 4.
  • Athletics practice will end on Friday, December 11.
