It has been another great start to the school year. We are
seeing great growth in our students in mind, body and spirit. Our students have
hit the ground running inside and outside of the classroom. We have started the
year doing The Positivity Project, which incorporates 24 character strengths
students learn throughout the school year. We look at one character strength each
week. Students learn about themselves and others, and they learn that we are
all different, yet we work together for common goals. Make sure to ask your
children about these strengths!
Thank you for the donations for our Jog-a-Thon. We raised
$54,000 that will go straight back to the students! We are ordering more
computers, resources, and supplies for our students to use in the classrooms.
The generosity of this community is always so amazing! In addition to this, we
appreciate our PTC putting on another amazing carnival this year!
As we enter the second quarter, student participation is at
an all-time high right now at Cedarwood. We had a total of over 200 fourth,
fifth, and sixth grade students participate in the fall sports. Cross country,
volleyball and football players showed great sportsmanship and hard work
throughout the entire season. All athletic teams did very well, with 28 cross
country students competing in the District Championships. The Cedarwood
football team also won the District Championship for the second year in a row! Now
we are ready to compete in wrestling and basketball.
Our Student Council has also led a Toys-4-Tots and
Coins-4-Tots drive. We had over $1,200 in coins donated to Cedarwood. With that
money, our Student Council went shopping for toys to donate to the needy. We
are so proud of our Cedarwood students being so generous this holiday season.
Our students are making great progress this year. We are
excited for more great things to come this school year!
