This year, Cedars has the opportunity to participate in the Little Mudder Challenge – 5.7 km run/obstacle course! This is a School District 57 event that will take place in mid-June. The challenge teaches kids teamwork and physical literacy through a series of obstacles. Grade 5 and 6 students will have the opportunity to train and be part of this event.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help with coaching/training leading up to the event. Practices will take place after school twice a week. If you would like to help, please contact Lindsay Ray (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will start training after Spring Break!
Due to our building project beginning this spring, the Elementary Sports Day will be held at Masich Place Stadium on Friday, May 31, 2019. Please note the change of date and location in your calendars.

Today the kids participated in Jump Rope for Heart. If you haven’t already brought in your fundraising envelope please do asap. If you fundraised online, you do not need to bring in an envelope. As of this morning, the online total was at $2725 which is 77% of our goal! Currently Mrs. Erbacher’s class is in the lead for the pizza lunch in the staff room. The rest of the donations will be counted on Friday, so all donations need to be in by then. Thank you for supporting this cause and being a community builder!
