19 - January 24, 2020
Dear Parents,
We welcome you and your child(ren) back to Bogota and CNG! We hope the first week of Distance Learning has gone well and we look forward to continuing to engage your child(ren) over the remainder of the school year.
For those of you who have young children, we would like to take a moment to recommend YouTube Kids. 
YouTube is an essential media application that teachers use to deliver instructional support for various topics aligned to their CNG curricula. Some students also spend considerable time browsing YouTube content for entertainment purposes. However, there are risks for children watching inappropriate content on YouTube, and that is why we are recommending YouTube Kids, which focuses on more appropriate content for our younger CNG learners. 
Google, the YouTube platform owner, continually reviews the YouTube Kids content, so the possibility of access to inappropriate content is significantly reduced, given Google’s extensive web filtering software. Many parents are enabling this platform for their children, so we invite you to explore this option at the following link.
Warm Regards,
Make sure to bookmark the Parents As Partners HUB on your phone and laptop for easy access. All important, relevant information for CNG parents is linked in the different sections. Take some time to navigate it!


Dear CNG Parents,  
Admissions are now open for the Teacher Training Institute postgraduate specialization in bilingual education. Classes will begin on the weekend of January 29 and 30 2021. Classes are held at the CNG campus on Fridays from 4:00 to 8:00 and Saturday´s from 8:00-12:00 (online while pandemic emergency restrictions apply). The specialization is three semesters long. You can find more information here. In this program you will learn about the best practices in education while improving your level of English, if you need it. If you need more information contact Julián Rodríguez ([email protected]).

Dear CNG Community, 

We hope these four weeks of the holiday break were peaceful and you were all able to recharge and get ready for the new challenges ahead. We understand the importance of family time and rest. In any given year we look for the beginning of the new one to leave behind the bad things and to get a fresh start. Unfortunately, this time around, the pandemic has not ended, school has not gone back to the way it was, and normalcy is not around the corner yet. Additionally, we tend to set resolutions for ourselves that many times emphasize our mistakes and not our potential. We invite you to read the following article as a family and set a 2021 theme for each of you. 

Although we are not sure when we will be able to start our hybrid model again, remember our K4 to 12 school counseling team is here to support you and our students whether it be virtually or in person.
Athletics & Condor Activities

The Athletics and Condor Activities department would like to welcome you into 2021. We hope that everyone was able to spend valuable time with family and friends. Upon reflection of the first semester, we have identified some areas of growth and understanding within our program during the ongoing pandemic. Athletics and Condor Activities is looking forward to providing the best opportunities possible for our children. 

As we begin this semester we would like to provide you with a quote from Amanda Gorman, “The new dawn blooms as we free it. For there is always light. If only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it.”
