MS Community Wraps Up Spirit Week With Winter Assembly
Marquis Austin

This afternoon, the Middle School community gathered on Zoom for their winter assembly! Hosted by Student Government co-presidents Savannah V. '26 and Chella S. '26, the event was an entertaining way to cap off a great year of learning at CGPS. The community shared creative videos, including a teacher TikTok that had students rolling over with laughter, a CGPS twist on "The Hanukkah Song" and a performance of the Louis Armstrong classic "What a Wonderful World" by the Big Band. Music teacher Ardith Collins also led everyone in a "Give Light" sing and sign along. "I love how you incorporated sign language into this touching song to bring us all together and show us that in times of desperation, there is always light. There is always hope," Savannah commented after. To end the assembly, faculty and staff continued one of the division's most anticipated winter traditions — a group performance of "The 12 Days of Christmas." Everyone had a splendid time!
