High School French Book Project

Elise Beutlick, French Teacher

The French II and III students at Cedar Springs High School made Christmas presents in the form of French children’s books for the children living at an orphanage in Cap-Haitien, Haiti. Haiti is a French-speaking country with a very low literacy rate of 60%.

Many children in Haiti do not have access to books. The Cedar Springs’ French students decided to create books to send to Haiti with the goal of encouraging literacy and creating a special Christmas memory for these children.

The Cedar Trails Giving Project

Mr. Avink, Mrs. Shepard, Mrs. Graf, Mrs. Tiffany

What a great giving project this year. We had money and gift cards coming in since Thanksgiving. We even heard stories of kids doing chores and emptying their piggy bank to help these kids in need.

Because of this generosity, we were able to help 2 separate families this year, right from our own community. Each family has two kids, and we were even able to buy something little for the parents as well. YOU made a difference in these family’s live. Thank you so much for your generosity and giving hearts this holiday.

Student Leadership Council update

 

Student Leadership Council is focusing on “giving back” and “family engagement” at the Middle School. Students brought in over 1,000 food items for a Food Drive. Students were able to build 10 baskets for our local families. Food Baskets included everything needed for a Thanksgiving Day feast and then some. Additional items were donated to North Kent Community Services, which also helps to support our families from the Cedar Springs and neighboring areas.

The group of students also suggested more opportunities for family nights. Their wishes were answered, and thanks to our partnership with En Gedi, Craig Owens was able to help us kick off a Family Fun Night at the Middle School. Parents, students and their siblings competed in Bubble Soccer. Pizza was provided. It was a great night with lots of laughs.

Students are working to coordinate the following for future give-back opportunities:

• Taking a “field trip” to Degage Ministries to help out

• Visiting the residents at Metron of Cedar Springs

• Volunteering some time to help support St. John Paul II Community Dinners

• Writing letters to our Veterans

If you or your child have any ideas for Family Fun Nights or Giving Back, please contact Jodi West at jodi.west@csredhawks.org or (616) 696-7326. Student Leadership is not an exclusive group. All students are welcome to drop in. Meeting are every other Thursday from 2:20-3:15, resuming on January 5, 2017.
