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.

Math Night at Beach Elementary

Ken See, Principal

On Thursday, February 5, the Beach staff in conjunction with the PTO sponsored a Parent Math Curriculum night.  Parents were invited to bring their Beach student to come and hear about how Every Day Math is taught here at school.  Parents had the chance to play math games with their child and to learn about some online resources they could use at home to support their child in math.  The night ended with a pizza dinner served by the Beach PTO.  We had 515 of our parents and students in attendance.  Thank you to everyone!
