Wednesday Information Packets
Wednesdays are a big day for information at CGES. Our PTA volunteers work very hard to distribute information (from the PTA, CGES, and MCPS) to the entire school. The youngest child in the family receives the full packet of information (aka "Green� packets) via their communication folder. Older siblings will receive information specific to them or their grade (aka �Yellow� packets).

Parents have the opportunity to opt-in to the "Red" group, our electronic version of the Wednesday Packets.  We encourage parents to consider joining the Red group, since it produces less paper waste and reduces the volunteers needed to stuff folders each Wednesday.   For questions about the Red group, please contact the Red Group Coordinator, Tina Valenti at redgroup@cgespta.org.

To submit flyers for Wednesday Packets:  Please make 860 copies of your flyer and deliver them to the CGES main office by 3 pm on Friday. Our volunteers do not make copies unless prior arrangements have been made.   Please also send an electronic copy of the flyer to redgroup@cgespta.org.

If you have time to assist on a Monday morning, or if you have questions about submitting Wednesday Packet flyers, please contact the Wednesday Packets Coordinator, I-Hsin McConnell at: weimieowner@yahoo.com

For general communications related questions/concerns, please contact the VP of Communications, Melissa Hogan at communication@cgespta.org.
