PAC Needs Your Help! PAC continues to work on plans for the Fall Fair that will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 1:00-3:30pm. We are desperate for volunteers! We hope that this event is a success, but if we don’t have enough volunteers we will have to cancel. Please sign up by Friday, October 18 outside the Business and Main Offices. We will make a decision about whether to go forward with the Fall Fair on Friday evening. Please continue to bring in donations for the No Name Game and small prizes for other games. You can contact Alison Woolgar (email@example.com ) or Annette Staves (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for more information.
Excavation fine-tuning continued today on the work site. Starting on Thursday morning, up to 40 truck and pup loads of gravel will be delivered and compacted each day on the new building site over a 20 day span! Trucks will enter on Preston Road, deliver their load, and exit through the brewery driveway. Please note that this new access road through to the brewery driveway is NOT for student/parent access.
And, just another friendly reminder that the drop-off loop and parking lot are very full between 8:20-8:30am. Be patient and only drop off at the corner of the playground on your way out. Dropping off in the gravel parking lot and/or in the Hurricane High Pressure lot is NOT permitted. Let’s keep our children safe!
Next monthly town hall meeting is 7:00pm on Monday, October 21. See you there!
Site work is underway!
We are so excited to see and hear the culmination of months of work behind the scenes surface in the work on our property near the river! If you haven’t been part of the daily drop off / pick up on our campus this week, you can check out the video updates below for a visual. We have much to be thankful in the way in which the Lord has allowed us to move forward with this expansion project!
Following the removal of fencing last weekend at our Fall Work Bee, heavy duty machinery have been at work removing top soil, excavating the building site, and building a new road access through the brewery parking lot next door. We are on schedule for the delivery of 12,000 meters of gravel next week – which will be compacted in 6 inch lifts on the new building site. Hear the details straight from Kenton Friesen, our Building Committee chair, in the videos embedded below. Let’s keep Growing Together!
What’s Going On Now?
What’s Been the Most Encouraging?
How Can We Be Praying?
As per our annual water testing policy, we tested all our drinking water fountains in the main building. Two of the three elementary fountains were above allowable lead levels, and one is nearing allowable levels. The presence of soldered joints are the likely cause. In response, we have installed a double filtration system on the fountain near the music room, and will be installing new, non-soldered pipes to our other two elementary fountains. These fountains will remain off until this remediation work is completed.
The Cedars Community Directory has been printed and will be coming home with the youngest in each family this week.
For the next three weeks or so, the PAC will need help with baking and serving coffee to the truckers and workers who have volunteered their time to help with the building project. Each day we will need baking plus two volunteers (one for the 10:00am break and one for the 3:00pm break) to help prepare coffee and bring treats to the volunteers.
Practices for the elementary Christmas musical are already underway! We are looking for someone with carpentry skills to help with the construction of the set. If this is something you are interested in, please get in touch with Heather Wilson at email@example.com
The Cedars PAC is busy getting ready for the Fall Fair (Children’s carnival) which will be held on Saturday, October 26, from 1:00pm-3:30pm. Admission is by donation but all the games are free. Concession will be offered by the students going on the France trip in the Spring.
How Can You Help?
Many volunteers will be needed to help run the games and make this event a success. Volunteer sign up sheets may be found close to the Business Office as well as outside the Main Office. Students in Grades 7-12 are also encouraged to volunteer. If you would like to help specifically with preparations ahead of the fair, please contact Alison at firstname.lastname@example.org or Annette at email@example.com.
Prize Donations Needed
This year we are bringing back the beloved “No Name Game” which is very popular with the kids! We are looking for donations of gently used toys, stuffies, books, games, puzzles, etc. These can be any size. Smaller McDonald’s Happy Meal type toys will be used as prizes at some of the other games. Please drop off these items at the Main Office.
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming October 21-26! Mark it on your calendars and get a jump on your Christmas shopping.
