Cedar View Students are giving back! The Leadership Teams are on a mission!

CSPS-4th-grade-SLT-2-web

When the 4th grade Student Leadership Team contemplated how they wanted to improve their school this year, they decided they were going to look outside of the school walls and into their own community.  By starting a “Penny War” between classrooms, they managed to raise more than $840 dollars to which they donated to the North Kent Service Center!  Each classroom had a jar and students from their home classrooms could fill the jar with pennies.  However, students from other classrooms could offset the amount of pennies by contributing quarters, nickels, and dimes.  The only way to make up the difference was to add more pennies!  Fun was had by all and best of all, they were able to contribute to a great program!  Awesome job, 4th graders!

The 5th grade Student Leadership Team was not far behind with their own idea of having a food and clothing collection for those in need.  During a two week period, they managed to collect five totes of clothing and a large amount of food!  Donations will be delivered to Degage Ministries in Grand Rapids, where the team will spend some time during the dinner hour helping out and meeting some of the staff and clients.

We are very proud of our Leadership Teams and their dedication to helping others!

Cedar View closer to a Community School!

 

For the third year, Cedar Springs Public Schools has continued their partnership with Kent School Services Network in an effort to develop what are called “community schools”.  The idea is to bring resources and programs into the schools with an overarching goal of increasing student attendance, focusing on the importance of academic achievement, and increasing family involvement.

At the end of last school year, Cedar View Elementary formed a committee consisting of Principal Andy Secor, teachers, Sue Smith, Laurie VanDam, Miranda Latimer, Kim Farrey, Sadie Gallagher, and KSSN Community School Coordinator, Ivy Kowalski.  The idea was to plan different family events with an end goal of the school becoming a more welcoming place and hub for parents to feel comfortable in.

In the fall, the committee organized “Movie Night”.  They used the gym and families brought lawn chairs and sleeping bags and watched a movie with popcorn and snacks.  There were 250 people in attendance!

In January, 260 people attended “Math Curriculum Night”, which focused on different ways to support parents when working with their student in math.  Discussions included how to help with homework, the main concepts of Everyday Math, and how using technology can support math learning.

On May 28th, the committee, along with some great volunteers, hosted “The Challenge” which resembled the TV show, “The Amazing Race.”  It was a combination of mental and physical challenges that families participated in together.  There were 10 different stations surrounding Cedar View with activities including family hula-hooping, an egg toss, math problem solving, a states and capitals quiz, push-ups, and many more.  The Parent-Teacher Organization provided funds for a photo booth at the finish line. There were a total of 305 participants!

The committee did an amazing job teaming together to help welcome families into Cedar View in high numbers and the hours of commitment directly impacted the school culture. Combine these activities with the Cedar View Choir, after school Math and Reading Clubs, as well as Girls on the Run, and Cedar View is truly working towards that vision of a community school!

Farewell, But Not Good-Bye

 

Ron McDermed, Cedar Springs Public Schools Superintendent

It is hard to believe we are at the close of the school year.  As you are probably aware my days are numbered here at school.  My last day of work will be June 23rd.   Although I am excited about all that is to come, Cedar Springs schools will always hold a special place in my heart.  Both of my children graduated from Cedar and the community has been our family home for over 25 years.  So many great people that I feel privileged to have known and worked with…I will miss you all!
