Please be sure to hand in all fundraising envelopes to your child(ren)’s teachers by Friday, February 16, 2018.
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!
This year’s “Jump Rope for Heart” event is fast approaching. It will take place on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. The Fundraising packages have been sent home today (Wednesday, January 31). There is also an option to create an account online for fundraising. Please see the packages for details. Packages can be returned to your child’s classroom teacher on February 14th. Cedars participates in Jump Rope for Heart to build community and serve others. Thank you for helping us support the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
This year’s musical is called “Dude You Hear What I Hear?”, and we would like to ask all parents to start looking around for clothing for their children that fits the following descriptions:
- White tops and black (dark) bottoms
- Girls may also wear white or black dresses (or a combination of white and black)
- Black tights or black socks
- Shirts and dresses need to be plain – no logos or patterns, please
- Please remember the students do get warm under the lights, so lighter-weight clothing is better
Ensemble singers dress code: Please look “smart”. Girls are more than welcome to wear sparkling, glittering accents on their black or white. Boys in this group could wear a tie, etc.
This year our performances will take place on December 14th and 15th at 7pm at First Baptist Church on 5th Ave. On December 13th and 14th we will have our full rehearsals at the church, so all parents of Grades 1-6 will be asked to drop their children off at First Baptist Church instead of the school at 8:30 am. December 14 at 9:00 am is going to be a dress rehearsal.
Permission forms for practice transportation, which include the practice itineraries and other information, will be coming home this week. Please return to the school as soon as possible.
We will be taking a collection to give a donation to Jericho Ministries at both evening performances.
Thank you for supporting and praying for Cedars’ music program. I am looking forward to seeing you during our performances on December 14th and 15th.

Report Cards are coming out on Friday. We encourage you to discuss with your child both his/her successes and areas for further growth. Reading over the report with your child demonstrates your care for her/him and your desire to see him/her learn and grow.
Parent/Teacher Interview appointment letters were sent home with your children today, indicating the time(s) you have been scheduled with the teacher(s). Please do your best to honour the appointments as scheduled as time is very tight on that day. Office staff have attempted to keep families grouped together and those with both high school and elementary children are scheduled closer to or during the high school interview times.
Elementary interview hours are 10:30am-5:00pm and 6:00pm-7:00pm.
Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in your child’s education. We look forward to continuing to work with you in fulfilling our mission of “Educating and equipping discerning disciples of Jesus Christ for restorative work in His kingdom.”
