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!

Below is a short video which provides more information about the event.
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!

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!
In the present climate of teacher shortages across BC, we have been blessed to hire and secure quality teachers and educational assistants (EAs) for part-time and full-time positions this year. However, with recent reshuffling of staff heading into the second half of the year, we are looking for ways to bolster our substitute Teacher and EA lists. Although we prioritize hiring educational staff with applicable certification and training, we are permitted by the Ministry of Education to hire responsible adults without credentials in cases of shortage.
As such, we are inviting capable, Christian adults who love working with school-aged children to consider applying for substitute work at Cedars as a classroom teacher or EA. Successful applicants would be given orientation and training by way of job shadowing, and would be called in only in cases where certified subs were unavailable.
If you are interested in applying, please submit your statement of faith, references and resume to Interim Principal, Shane Nelson, at email@example.com.
After defeating DP Todd 61-47 this past Saturday to win the Kelly Road tournament, our Cedars Eagles Junior A Boys basketball team enters the District Championships this weekend at College Heights ranked second in the city behind Duchess Park. They have done well in city league and tournament play and recently defeated 4 Senior A teams at a tournament in McBride.
A top 4 placing this weekend will guarantee them a spot in the Zone Championships next weekend in Dawson Creek.
Their schedule this week sees them playing Duchess Park B at 4:00 PM Thursday at College Heights followed by a semi-final game versus the winner of DP Todd and PGSS on Friday @ 3:30 PM, also at College Heights. Should they win, they play in the finals on Saturday at 1:30 PM.
If any students in Grades 4-10 are interested in doing a Canadian history or heritage project for the Prince George Regional Heritage Fair on April 27, 2018, please see Mrs. Fisher.
