Yearbooks are on sale for the low, low price of $35 per book! (This is a discount from last year’s regular price of $40!) Even with the pandemic restrictions, a lot of memories have been made this school year, and the Yearbook Crew has done a great job of capturing most of them for you to look back on for years to come.

You may purchase your yearbook(s) now on our Payments page. (Choose the School Payments option and pick Yearbook from the “Other Information” drop-down menu.) Yearbooks will arrive some time in June.

Calendar Notes – Two Special Days Cancelled This Year

As we are approaching the scheduled dates of our Grand Community Day and Elementary Sports Day, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel these two events for this year. Current health guidelines, as well as our commitment to health and safety, limit events of this nature at this time. Our Elementary classes plan to celebrate our “grand-friends” in other ways and it is our hope and prayer that these events will return next year.

New Primary Teacher – Hiring Announcement

We are pleased to announce that we have filled our Primary Teacher position for the 2021/22 school year. Mrs. Emily Hanson has recently completed her teaching practicum at UNBC, and we are delighted to have her join our Primary team. Emily did one of her practicums at Cedars, so we have seen first-hand her passion and skill with our little ones! Congratulations and welcome, Emily!

Cedars Student is Awarded the Prestigious Schulich Leader Scholarship!

Grade 12 student Cole Willmann recently received the news that he was the recipient of the $80,000 Schulich Leader Scholarship in Entrepreneurship from the University of Saskatchewan!

Many of you know Cole from his egg business and that was the impetus for his application. He dreams of one day expanding that business to include an egg quota, owning and operating a grading facility, as well as expanding his family’s cow/calf operation and even one day designing and building greenhouses to supply Northern BC communities lacking fresh and affordable food options.

Cole’s area of study at the U of S will be in Agriculture and Bioresources and he is grateful for this scholarship that will allow him to concentrate on his studies without being concerned about the finances. He thinks the $80,000 will help a lot in that area! It will also allow him to continue to help on his family’s farm and even to volunteer out at Ness Lake Bible Camp in the summer, too.

Congratulations, Cole!
