Pi Day at Red Hawk Elementary

CSPS-Pi-Day-at-RHE

Pi Day was celebrated at Red Hawk Elementary with a day of math games, contests, computations, memorizations, calculations, recitations, celebrations, creative Pi shirts, and eating of pie! In Mr. Verwys’s Advanced Math, three students earned certificates for memorizing the most digits in Pi. Taking 3rd place was Emma Earnest with 104 Digits, 2nd place was Hailey Begeman with 136 digits, and in 1st place was Logan Douglas with an amazing 163 digits! The top school winner was a student in Mr. Gariepy’s Advanced Math class. Daniel Vaugn memorized an astounding 171 digits beyond the decimal point in Pi! Congratulations to our students for going above and beyond in their learning.

How better to conclude a day of Pi than with fresh pie? Parents were asked to bring in fruit pies as part of the celebration. Forty-five delicious pies were brought in and our Student Leadership Council served slices to students, staff, and the parent volunteers who helped throughout the day.

Cedar View Family Fitness Fun

CSPS-CV-Family-Fitness-Night

Andy Secor, Principal

Cedar View welcomed over 250 people to “Family Fitness Fun” on Thursday night!  This is our second year of holding family nights and we are building off our great success with “Math Night” in the fall.  We had a certified instructor doing kickboxing in the gym, a zumba instructor in the cafeteria, and boot camp with Mr. Secor in the media center.  I have attached a handful of pictures (see more on twitter @secorsig).

The YMCA brought a taste-tester with healthy food.  Jennifer Willette, Lana Kamer, our high school Red Hawk athletes, and our PTO helped to secure and organize healthy snack bags for students and parents.  A huge thank you goes out to the PTO, the Cedar View “family night” committee, and all Cedar View staff who attended, advertised, or helped with set-up.  Thank you to parents who brought their students out and got a great work-out in!    Just another reminder of the strong bond between school and community here in Cedar Springs!  This is truly a special place.  Look for family night #3 coming this spring!

A Step in the Right Direction at Red Hawk Elementary

CSPS-Step-in-the-Right-Direction-web

April Stevens, Principal

Students are taking a step in the right direction by performing random acts of kindness at Red Hawk. Names of the students caught in the act are written on “shoes” and placed around the perimeter of the hallways. Currently, there are over 400 shoes walking along the Red Hawk walls. Teachers (and even our principal!) are stepping up by wearing the red Converse shoes on Early Release days.
