Hot dog and hamburger meals are purchased by donation. All proceeds go toward the Grade 12 Grad trip next September.
We will be welcoming an international student to Cedars next year for Grade 8. He is a Korean male who has been living in Prince George for 3 years already and has been attending Immaculate Conception School. The plan is for this young man to finish his education in Canada.
The organization coordinating his stay in Canada is looking for a host family for him as he moves into the Cedars community. If this is something your family would consider or if you would like more information about international home stays, we have a package available at the Main Office. Please contact Shane Nelson (email@example.com) for further details or to let him know if you are interested in this opportunity.
Come one, come all to the Used Book Sale next Wednesday and Thursday, June 20 and 21!
25 cents for soft cover books

Proceeds go to acquiring more books for the library!
As a proud owner of a new puppy, I know firsthand the joy that our canine friends can bring. Recently, there has been an increase of pet presence on our property – very likely with positive intentions to share this joy with others. However, not all of our human friends experience the same level of joy around animals and, in some cases, the presence of pets on our property can cause anxiety and concern.
To respect this shared space, we would ask that pets remain in vehicles before and after school. Please consider our school property to be a “no pet” zone, without permission of the administration. We will be posting signage to this effect in the near future.
“Celebrations…are so much more than a valid diversion from work or an excuse to eat too much; they invite us to enter into God’s joy by remembering His faithfulness and goodness.” – Darcy Greco
The month of May was full. In the third week of May, over 250 grandparents and friends joined us for our annual Grand Community Day, and similar numbers of staff, family, students, alumni, and friends gathered for our 21st Valedictorian Ceremony. Dozens of parent, staff, and student volunteers worked alongside one another to plan, prepare, and pull-off these amazing events.
But we are in good company. Celebration has been the serious work of the people of God from ancient times. The nation of Israel was commanded to mark the passage of time with several celebratory feasts – each with their unique focus on God’s covenant relationship with them. The church was commanded to practice a weekly “love feast” to remember and celebrate the new covenant in Christ’s blood. It is clear that intentional celebration is an important aspect of our flourishing as God’s people.
However, it is easy, in our busyness and world of distraction, to get “swallowed up by both the incidental and enormous challenges of life”. Christian celebration provides the opportunity to “anchor us in a deeper story”, and remind us of God’s faithfulness and goodness in all things.
As I listened to elementary students quote scripture, sound their instruments together, and engage older generations in worship at our Grand Community Day – I was reminded of God’s faithfulness over three generations in our Cedars’ community. As our thirteen graduates took turns sharing their their diverse experiences at Cedars at our Grad Gala event last week – I was reminded of the goodness of God in the gift of these students and the opportunity we have had to bless and be blessed by them. And, as I played my own part at the front of many of these events – I was reminded again of the many and varied gifts God has so generously given this community – gifts of service, encouragement, leadership, organization, teaching, and prayer. God has been so good to us.
If you have never peeked in on a Grand Community Day, attended a Graduation Ceremony or Grad Gala – put them on your calendar for next year. Come be reminded of God’s faithfulness and goodness in these annual celebrations.
May was full. June doesn’t let up a whole lot. The good news is that there are more opportunities for us to celebrate together!

The following tuition schedule was approved at the Spring General Meeting last night (June 5, 2018).
Setting up Recurring Tuition Payments
Tuition payments must be automatically recurring, either by a credit card or a Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) arrangement, or be paid by lump sum in advance. You can set up your credit card payments either in-school or by phoning us (250-564-0707).
If you would rather do bank account withdrawals on the 1st or 15th of each month, you can find our PAD form on the Forms Page. Fill it out and hand it in to the Business Office.
All payments must be set up by September 13th each year. Office staff are back in session two weeks before the beginning of the school year and would be happy to help you get set for the year!
