Middle School play to be held May 5-6
Join us for the CSG Middle School Theater program, The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet, which will be held on May 5 and 6 at 7:00pm in the Agnes Jeffrey Shedd Theater. This short and silly version of Romeo and Juliet is written in the style of Dr. Seuss—the playwright took out the horrible tragedy and replaced it with ridiculous comedy. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or online.

Learning. Leading. Connecting.
CSG in the Community
This past week, our students, faculty, and staff attended multiple events celebrating girls and women in our region. At the Metropolitan Club, the CSG community participated in a panel discussion about women in STEM. Later that evening, students and some faculty members attended the Women's Fund of Central Ohio's Annual Keyholder event and heard from Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement. And yesterday, CSG was represented at the YWCA's annual Women of Achievement luncheon, during which Judge Laurel Beatty Blunt '92 was honored as one of six women of achievement in central Ohio.

Form V students showcase skills during game show challenge
Form V students on Thursday morning participated in Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, a fun, game-show-style event in which students competed against their parents. The morning was an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills in front of fellow peers and family members. Congratulations to the Class of 2030 for their well-deserved victory!
