This week, we are officially kicking off our Growing Together Building Expansion capital campaign! A group of staff and community members have been working hard behind the scenes on a grant applications, viewbook, website, bulletin board, and promotional video. Today, the youngest child from each family was sent home with a copy of our viewbook. Copies to share are available in the office. Our Growing Together web page will host updates, promotional videos, and contact information. We look forward to sharing our first promo video in next week’s Shake and on our Cedars Updates Facebook page.
If you have any ideas or questions about our capital campaign, please contact Principal, Shane Nelson, or Dave Rowland at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have you heard about how actively our Cedars students participated in the annual Speech Arts & Drama festival this year?
Each year, this festival provides an excellent opportunity for Cedars to equip students with the tools to speak truth with power, and to use our Creator’s gift of artistic expression for kingdom purposes.
This Saturday, come see Cedars students from grade 3 to 11 join other outstanding performers on center stage at UNBC’s Canfor Theatre at 7 pm for the annual Honours Performance. One of the pieces chosen by adjudicators was a moving reading of a chapter from the Bible from a Cedars student. Admission is by donation.
If you have a dramatic student or one who especially enjoyed their class performance, this “highlight reel” from the festival will give you a great overview of speech arts and drama. From mime to storytelling to dramatic scenes, it offers a lot more than group choral speaking.
Bring a friend!
Don’t forget to log your volunteer hours for this school year. While we are no longer charging a fee for unfinished hours, families are still asked to donate 25 hours per year and to log them in the book in the Main Office.
Volunteering has so many benefits!
- It builds our community
- It blesses others
- It helps keep costs down
- It helps you meet and make new friends
- It can even promote longevity, improve self-esteem, and make you happy!
There are still lots of volunteer opportunities coming up with our year-end field trips and events happening. Keep your eyes on your email inbox as we’ll often highlight needs here in the Shake (as today) or teachers may be emailing parents with classroom needs.
