Celebrating a Year of Excellence

This past year, our students impressed us every single day through their love of learning and impressive achievements, both inside and outside the classroom. As CGPS breaks for the summer, we would like to celebrate some of our students’ outstanding accomplishments.

In the Grammar School, fourth grade students welcomed their families back into the classroom with a Poetry Slam that featured their own original works. Kindergarten classrooms embarked on an in-depth study of the life cycle. As part of the integrative unit, KC even hatched eleven of their own chicks. Continuing a treasured and annual tradition, PK classes celebrated Clifford Day, sharing original Clifford stories with their friends and families.

In the Middle School, theater students came together to put on a spectacular run of Matilda Jr. Seventh graders leapt into their study of physics, chemistry, engineering and design with the anticipated return of the Boat Launch: a project that requires students to design their own boats, made of cardboard and duct tape, capable of making it across the width of the GS pool. With the guidance of English and history teacher Ethan Timmins-Schiffman, students cultivated their green thumbs and created the first-ever MS garden. Furthermore, students partnered with renowned artist Tova Snyder to create a community mural on 93rd street.

The Prep School hosted the first annual Alex Bhak Experiential Learning Symposium in memory of Alex Bhak ’15, honoring scholars Lara B. ’23, Harry G. ’23, Chloe L. ’23, Raihana Rahman ’22, Victoria R. ’23 and Jackson W. ’23. Our Advanced Science Research seniors made waves across the country, with Akshay Shivdasani representing New York City at the Regeneron International Science and Research Fair, Yuqiao Zou being named a semifinalist in the Regeneron Science Talent Search and Raihana Rahman placing first in the NY Metro Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. Moreover, the CGPS Chess Team battled their way to the spot of second in the nation, and student performers gave brilliant performances of The Monstrum, Pippin and CLUE.

This is only a brief snapshot of what our students accomplished throughout the year. Congratulations to our entire community for truly making this year a year of excellence. Enjoy your well-deserved summer vacation!
