2015 Board of Education Meetings

 

The Cedar Springs Public Schools Board of Education welcomes attendance of the public and school staff at its meetings.

A school board meeting is the only means by which a school board can carry out its legal duties or exercise its legal powers.  As such, the primary purpose of a school board meeting is to transact business.  Secondarily, school board meetings provide opportunities for creative and constructive decision-making by members of the board while attempting to reach consensus on strategic issues.  In addition, school board meetings offer an opportunity for the public and staff to address the Board of Education.

Location:  Hilltop Community Building

Board Room – 3rd Floor @ 6:45 PM

Chargers Show School Spirit at Walk and Festival

Students enjoying a snack after the Walk-A-Thon

WOW! What an awesome start to the year for the little Chargers of Creative Technologies Academy! CTA Elementary was busy with lots of fun things: the annual Walk-A-Thon and the Red Flannel Festival!

The Walk-A-Thon included obstacles for the students, including a finish line they got to cross after each lap.

The Walk-A-Thon included obstacles for the students, including a finish line they got to cross after each lap.

The CTA Parent Association decided to have one – and only one – BIG fundraiser this year: A Walk-a-Thon. The students were asked to contact their friends and family to donate to their participation in the Walk-a-Thon at our local Skinner Field. All of the donations are going towards funding for educational class field trips. In fact, every grade in the elementary raised enough to go to Klackle Orchards where they will learn about various apple processes, agricultural practices and of course enjoy samples and experience apple picking – completely paid for by the donors! Nice work, Chargers!

CTA was ever-present in the Red Flannel festivities this year. We participated in the window decorating competition. Congratulations to third grade for a first place ranking this year. This was also the first year that CTA walked as a school in the Red Flannel parade. And boy, did we pick a good year to start! A little rain and cold won’t hold us Chargers down! NO WAY!

CTA Creates Brings Art to the Classroom

CTA-Creates1

CTA Elementary students share their works of art.

CTA Creates took advantage of the great weather to take their lesson outdoors.

CTA Creates took advantage of the great weather to take their lesson outdoors.

For the month of October, the CTA Creates art classes will be studying Henri Matisse, who used cut paper to create amazing works of art. The students will be cutting and designing their very own artwork using a similar method to that which Matisse used. The students also will be working on a collaborative project later in the month which will represent all CTA students.

CTA Creates is a 100 percent volunteer-run program in its third year, which is run by a group of parents who work together to bring art to the students of CTA. They study different artists every month and let the kids try many different art processes and use different mediums. Students, teachers and parent volunteers all love Art Thursdays!
