After taking 3rd place at the Rockford Invitational Sept. 23, Cedar Springs High School hosted 20 bands for the 57 Annual Red Flannel Invitational October 7.  The leadership team started the day with the Star Spangled Banner during the flag raising ceremony, along with the Red Flannel Queen and Court. On October 14, Cedar Springs Marching Red Hawks marched into Belding, on a crazy rainy day, and took first place. The competition was moved indoors due to rain. 

The Marching Hawks have been working hard on their show, Picasso, and would love you for everyone to come and see them perform. Their last three shows are Jenison Oct. 21, Rockford West Shore Invitational Oct. 28, and MCBA State Competition, November 4, Detroit Ford Field. Times TBD.

Community Connection

Elementary students had the opportunity to learn about the Cedar Springs community during their trip to the local museum.

The Cedar Springs Public Museum more than 100 CTA students visit earlier this month. All of our 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students had the opportunity to learn many things about the history of our country, state and the town of Cedar Springs. We appreciate the opportunity to visit our local museum and give our students the opportunity to learn more about their community.

Successful Walk-A-Thon benefits elementary students

Third grade students Deegan VanHarten and Colren Bailey jump double at the jump rope station.

The Creative Technologies Academy Parent Association held their annual walk-a-thon on October 6. It was a huge success! They raised almost $3,800. This fundraiser was held to benefit the elementary grades to provide field trips and other classroom needs. The walk was held on the school grounds and the classes took turns with their reading buddies participating in the walk-a-thon activities. They all really enjoyed it, and had a lot of fun! The PA did it a little different than in the past years and opted to have activity stations. The students raced on scooters,

swiveled hula hoops, jumped rope, and danced to music. The teachers also enjoyed engaging with their students and watching them enjoy themselves. A huge thank you to our sponsors – Walmart and Meijer for gift cards to buy our snacks and water and Burger King for donating free hamburgers or a free ice cream cone vouchers. Our top class who raised the most money was the 3rd graders who will receive a pizza party and $200 towards books for their classroom. The 5th grade class also earned a pizza party. Thank you to all who helped plan, volunteered on-site and donated to make the walk a huge success!
