Students, Parents, Teachers, all,

The information below provides a schedule of events and activities that become part of life at Colonel Gray as we approach the Christmas break.  We keep the focus on teaching, learning, and assessment as the break approaches but we have a number of traditional Christmas Spirit activities that add to our sense of community and enjoyment of the season.

The official start of the meal is 11:40 AM, but it is expected that some classes will start a little bit early. The noon hour will end at 12:30 PM but flexibility is requested so that students can finish their meal or cleanup.
