Summer fun in school

Cedar Springs Public Schools hosted Summer School for grades K-5 from June 11 through 28.  Highlights of this year’s programming included educational field trips to our community’s new Cedar Springs Public Library and Cedar Springs Museum.  Daily learning activities in both math and reading featured direct instruction and use of interactive technology, along with fun brain breaks and muscle activities.  

Students enjoyed a new addition to our programming this year, and each receiving brand new “free” reading books.  These books supported our District’s focus on early literacy and were paid for by grant funding as part of the “Kids Read Now” programming.  Summer School also included snack breaks, lunch and transportation to and from school.  It all added up to Summer Fun in School!!!

2018—2019 Student Insurance

 

Accidents happen! When they happen to your child, someone must pay the bills. If you have other insurance, these plans can help offset the deductibles and coinsurance for those plans.   If you have no other insurance, these plans will provide basic coverage. Any benefits payable by the Policy as a result of medical, surgical, dental, Hospital or nursing service will be paid directly to the Hospital or person rendering such service unless proof of payment in full is provided.

Dear Cedar Springs Community,

 

Superintendent Scott Smith

It is an honor to have this opportunity to extend a hearty welcome to you as we make final preparations for the 2018/19 school year.  The new school year promises to be marked with evidence of substantial growth from beginning to end. Each new school year is filled with opportunities to grow.  Growth for a Kindergartener will look much different that what it will for a student who will be graduating in ten months. Regardless the age of the student, growth gives cause for celebration.  The most significant challenge we face as your school district is to do everything we can to maximize the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of each child we serve. To be at the top of our game, we too must grow as educators.  

School districts can grow in many ways to better meet the needs of the students and families they serve.  Over the summer months, we have grown by hiring great teachers, support staff, and administrators to fill vacancies in our staffing plan.  

Although we will certainly miss the special people who have served in these roles in the past, each new hire is an opportunity to get stronger by bringing in new ideas and experiences to our team.  We have also demonstrated growth by taking classes, participating in workshops, and reading about the latest initiatives to help our students get the most out of each minute they spend with us this year.  We are  excited for the opportunity to put our hard work over the summer into action in our classrooms.

Humbled by the opportunity to serve, our staff is committed to carrying on the tradition of excellence that is pervasive in Cedar Springs Public Schools. Recognizing the upcoming school year will present challenges, we know that together, we will look for and embrace opportunities to benefit the children, parents, staff, and community of Cedar Springs Public Schools.

Finally, please accept my heartfelt thank you to all in the community from the Board of Education to the parents who have welcomed my family. The warmth, care, and compassion we have received are a testament to the quality system that is Cedar Springs Public Schools.

With warm regard and respect,

Scott B. Smith, Superintendent
