Today we kicked off our Heart and Stroke fundraising campaign. Students were sent home with fundraising envelopes today. The fundraising campaign will end on Friday, February 21st.
If you wish to participate, please return your fundraising envelopes to your child’s teacher by the 21st. This campaign is a great way for Cedars to serve others and show support for those dealing with heart issues. To go along with this campaign we will be having a Jump Rope for Heart Event on Wednesday, February 12th. On this day, (Feb 12th) each class will have the opportunity to head down to the gym for some fun, heart pumping, skipping activities.
A reminder to parents to please ensure your children have proper warm clothing for the extreme cold that we are experiencing this week.
The elementary school has “In Days” when the temperature reaches -20C or below. Students can head straight to their classrooms when they are dropped off in the morning and will be kept in during breaks (unless the temperature rises during the day).
Please pick students up promptly at the end of school days during cold snaps, as well.
Starting Monday, January 13th, we will be opening a snow hill during intermediate lunch. Please keep the following in mind:
- Safety first. Students are expected to play safely, take turns, and watch out for other students while on and around the snow hill.
- No big sleds
- The snow hill will be closed when it gets too icy.
Have fun and play safe!

This year’s Christmas play, Away in a Mango, meant a lot to us. It took so much time and energy. However, this play built our relationship with God by helping us to understand the true meaning of Christmas. We also have to tell you all about how incredibly awesome everyone did! What could be better than teaching others people about God? (Nothing!) There were almost three months of practice until it was time for the play. The choir, ensemble, and cast taught more than 250 people about God. Some were even hearing about it for the FIRST TIME! Now, that means a lot! In fact, it is life-changing! All in all, it was an experience we will never forget!

Choir concert costumes this year are cut-off jean shorts (not too short!) and white T-shirts. Please feel free to use old jeans to cut off or purchase jeans from Value Village or another thrift store to make shorts out of. Plain white T-shirts can be purchased very cheaply (under $10) from Michaels.
Teachers have emailed out their class schedules for Parent/Teacher Interviews on Monday (Dec. 2). If you have not received the information, please email your child’s teacher or call the office (250-564-0707).
If you need to change your appointment time(s), please call the office. Teachers are not able to move families around in the schedule.
If you can’t come on Monday, please call the office to let us know. You should also email your teacher to book another time/day with them as needed.
Interviews run from first thing in the morning until the end of the school day, so there will be no classes for K-7 that day.
