Each year, we acknowledge high school students that maintain an A-average or higher (GPA 3.5 or above) in all four terms of the school year. Bronze medals are awarded to students who do this for the first time, followed by silver and gold medals, and trophies in subsequent years of this achievement. At our year-end assembly on Tuesday afternoon, the following students were recognized for their consistent, Honor Roll status:
Van der Woerd, Eva
de Fauw, Evelyn
Van Delft, Jenna
Parents and special guests are invited to join us for our year-end, high school assembly in the gym at 1:30pm in the gymnasium on Tuesday, June 20th. We will worship together, review the year, acknowledge academic achievement, and recognize those who have served, led, and demonstrated exemplary citizenship in our high school community this year. We will also say goodbye to our graduates and staff members who will not be returning. Come join us for this celebration and opportunity to glorify God and honor one another!

Last week, we celebrated the graduation of our 20th grad class and our 500th graduate! On Thursday, valedictorians Taylor Rowland and Jenna Van Delft addressed the class and over 250 parents, friends and special guests at our Valedictorian Ceremony. If you have never attended a Cedars’ graduation ceremony, you are missing out! This rich tradition of giving glory to God, and honoring and blessing our students is a powerful culmination of the “educating and equipping” work we have been called to do together. The ceremony was followed up by a banquet meal and an opportunity for staff and students to “roast and toast” one another in a fun-loving, relational manner. Grade 12 students finished up their 24-hr grad experience with a set of well-planned and orchestrated after grad festivities at Ness Lake.
Thanks to the many people in our community that make graduation experiences like this possible! As we sit down to write thank you cards for all those involved, we quickly reached a list of over 70 students, staff, and parents. Amazing!
If you missed last week’s celebrations, you still have one more chance to see and hear from our graduates. This week, graduates will be giving 10-15 minute presentations on what they have learned about themselves, what has shaped them in their time at Cedars, and where they feel God is leading them next. These Grad Gala evenings take place at Cedars from 7-9pm this Wednesday and Thursday. We hope to see some of you there!
In partnership with the BC Christian Reformed Safe Church Ministry, PG Christian Reformed Church, and Youth for Christ PG, we will be hosting a “feature length documentary that provides a clear-eyed examination of pornography, its effects on kids, teens, parents/adults, families and porn stars”. The goal of this event is “to educate our community on the realities of pornography, help parents/adults understand the growing epidemic of hard core porn usage, and propose solutions for preventing exposure and responding to addition”.
The documentary is suitable for all adults and children over 16. A panel that includes local area professionals will participate in a post-viewing question period. Although this event is sponsored by Christian organizations, it is non-religious in nature, and you are encouraged to extend an invitation in all your spheres of influence. This is an educational opportunity that opens up a crucial discussion about access to pornography by our children on any internet-connected device.
Paper invitations are available at the office. The Facebook event page can be found here.
Date: Tuesday, June 6th
Time: 7-9:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm)
Venue: Cedars Christian School
