Thanks be to God, we have 367 students registered for next year and are “in process” with several other new families. At this point, we still have room for new students in select grades of our elementary and high school programs for 2021/22. Word of mouth is our strongest recruitment strategy. If you know families that you feel would be a good fit at Cedars, strike up a conversation and invite them to give us a call for a conversation and/or school tour!
Cedars Christian School is a not-for-profit society and needs members to make decisions, elect and/or serve as Board Directors, and participate on Board committees. Society members meet twice yearly (via Zoom these days); once in the Fall, and once in the Spring. Although society membership is discussed in our new family interview process, we would like to remind you about this opportunity. A key requirement of society membership is assent to our school’s Statement of Faith. If you are interested in following through with an application for society membership, please reach out to our Principal, Shane Nelson, via email to discuss the process.
Regardless, all are welcome to attend our biannual Society meetings. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, June 7th at 7pm (via Zoom).
Madame Rand and her family recently announced that they will be moving to Nanaimo at the end of May. We will miss her and the boys! And, we will miss her work as Elementary Vice-Principal and Intermediate French teacher. It is sad to see them go, but we know that they will be a blessing in the new communities of which they will be a part on the island.
As such, we are looking for a part-time (0.29 FTE) French teacher for grades 4-7 students to start in September. Experience teaching French is preferred, but certified teachers with high school and/or post-secondary course work in French may be considered. Interested parties are asked to check out the posting and submit an application on our Careers web page.
