This fall, the students enrolled in the Campus Kids program have been enjoying the nice weather and doing lots of fun activities.  Campus Kids is the Before and After school program located in Cedar Trails Elementary School.

We have expanded our morning programming to include Arts and Crafts, gym time, group games, and Just Dance videos.  The children are enjoying the morning structure, and look forward to what each morning will bring!

Campus Kids has enjoyed learning how to do Yoga in the afternoons.  Michelle, from Moxie Fitness, has been coming on Thursdays to teach a Beginner Class.  All of the students were given the opportunity to try the exercise, and a number of them signed up to continue on in a more advanced class.   The students are learning poses to help with flexibility, strength, concentration, posture, and breathing.  It is our goal to continue to expose our students to a large variety of new activities.  Zumba is a favorite activity for many of our students, and that is offered once a month on Early Release Fridays.

Campus Kids enjoy learning how to serve, set, and spike the ball from the Girl’s Varsity Volleyball Team.

We have also received a visit from the Girl’s Varsity Volleyball Team this fall!  The team came over and showed everyone how to serve, set, and spike the ball.  It was a very fun filled afternoon for everyone.

Campus Kids is looking forward to winter and doing many winter activities and craft projects, while also learning about various customs around the world.

For additional information about Campus Kids, please call us at 616 696-1716.

School Board Recognition Month

CSPS-2015 Board of EdJanuary is School Board Recognition Month  – An opportunity for us to celebrate the great things happening in our schools and the dedicated volunteer school board members that serve the Cedar Springs community.

School board members are regular citizens, like you and me,  that have an extraordinary commitment to the children of our community.

Today, our school board members are entrusted with the important work of shaping the education of our youngest citizens.  They dedicate countless hours to creating the mission, vision and goals that drive our schools.  They are dedicated to creating a school culture where collaboration and continuous learning are valued and displayed throughout our system.  The seven members of the Cedar Springs Board of Education do this by always keeping children as the center of their work and decision making.

Please join me in saluting the men and women who serve as members of the Cedar Springs Board of Education. Take a moment to express your gratitude for this important service to our community.

Brook Nichols-10 Years of Service

Joe Marckini-7 Years of Service
