CSG Celebrates Children’s Book Week
Sarah Sole

All manner of animals have been represented on our Main Campus this week in recognition of our Children’s Book Week theme, Wild About Reading. In addition to showcasing a variety of student projects and displays, CSG took a field trip to the Columbus Zoo. 

This week at CSG has been filled with birds—and turtles, fish, snakes, and more! 

All manner of animals have been represented on our Main Campus in recognition of our Children’s Book Week theme, Wild About Reading. The celebration represents the culmination of months of student work. Art pieces and research projects are all on display, such as the biomes created by Form V and the research on extinct and endangered animals carried out by Form IV. 

The projects required an immense amount of effort from students as well as faculty; teachers have collaborated on many projects, which are directly connected to science, math, language arts, music, and more. 

On Tuesday, our community participated in a school-wide t-shirt day, wearing shirts we painted to represent various groups of wildlife: The PYC had an ocean theme, and faculty and staff were peacocks. Big & Little Sisters wore companion shirts, and represented snakes, giraffes, leopards, turtles, tigers, and zebras. 

Other highlights from the week have included a Fiction Feud competition between Forms V and VI and a reading festival inside the Gold Gym, featuring student projects on display and an inflatable, lifesize whale that students could walk inside. 

The festivities all led up to CSG’s school-wide field trip to the Columbus Zoo on Friday, April 8. The day’s itinerary included Big & Little Sister activities, a scavenger hunt, and of course, plenty of time to see the diverse flora and fauna. 

It’s been a wild ride! Thanks for joining us!
