The Grade 8/9 art class is in need of rinsed 2-quart juice/milk cartons. If you have some you can donate, please drop them off in the high school art room (#104, bottom hall).
Some of Cedars Christian School community will be participating in a fundraiser called “The Coldest Night of the Year.” This Saturday, Feb 24th, you can choose to walk 1, 5 or 10 km or be helping people for the registration or serving of the meal at St Giles Presbyterian Church. This is a great evening to help the homeless here in Prince George. It is however a walk that is taking place right across Canada. All funds remain in the city you are walking in. The funds go to AWAC (An Association Advocating for Women and Community) and a small portion to St Giles to purchase food hampers. St Giles gives 300+ hampers/year!

Please be sure to hand in all fundraising envelopes to your child(ren)’s teachers by Friday, February 16, 2018.
This month, our elementary students and parents have had the opportunity to hear stories from our alumni and current high school students about why they chose to stay at Cedars. Recently, our family of Christian Schools in BC completed a high quality, inspirational video to promote choosing Christian Education for our children. Obviously, most of us are already convinced and are committed to enrolling our children here at Cedars. However, as our alumni and current high schoolers confess, there are times when we consider other educational options. The following video makes a strong case for current and new families to continuing or making a commitment to Christian Education. Feel free to share this with your friends and family!

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful retirement party on Saturday night and all your kinds words. Thanks for the kind and encouraging words from those who were unable to attend, also. It was a very fun evening with lots of great food. I will miss everyone, but will still see you around town. Thanks again for the roasting and toasting. It was “Flippin awesome!”
Next Wednesday, February 14th is Jump Rope for Heart and Red, White, and Pink Day! Students should come dressed in Valentines colours and ready to Jump! Fundraising envelopes can be returned to your child’s classroom teacher on the 14th. Lets see how much we can raise for The Heart and Stroke Foundation!
Mr. Rowland has been working hard to secure another great set of service learning opportunities across the city. On Wednesday, February 14th, our high school students and staff will be heading off in at least 10 different directions to serve at places like the New Life Centre, Hospice House, Phoenix Transition House, Bibles for Missions, and Gateway Christian Ministries. To pull this off, we are looking for parent drivers and/or chaperones to transport close to 120 staff and students to these different destinations. If you are willing and able to drive, please contact the Office and provide your details. Parent volunteers are invited to join the high school for the kick-off breakfast at 8am. Teams will be heading out around 9am and returning to the school at 11:30am. Feel free to contact Dave Rowland or Shane Nelson for more details.
We have been blessed with a number of events this year that have highlighted our strong arts program at Cedars. Our elementary students and staff put on another wonderful Christmas musical; our high school drama classes performed their “After Hours” play, Shakespeare and monologue selections. Last weekend, our high school band trained and performed with Westside Academy in our 2nd Annual Band Winterlude. We continue to be amazed by the talented actors, musicians and artists in our midst!
Some of the events that we put on involve booking venues, purchasing costumes/props and scripts. To ensure these costs were covered, we typically charge for our high school drama events. However, due to the large number of guests at this years’ events, we more than covered our expenses. After some discussion, we have decided to put excess funds toward graduation awards that recognize a student’s “contribution to the arts” (drama, music, art) during their time at Cedars. This year, we are pleased to initiate a $500 scholarship for one of our graduates!
