A Step in the Right Direction at Red Hawk Elementary


CSPS-Step-in-the-Right-Direction-web

April Stevens, Principal

Students are taking a step in the right direction by performing random acts of kindness at Red Hawk. Names of the students caught in the act are written on “shoes” and placed around the perimeter of the hallways. Currently, there are over 400 shoes walking along the Red Hawk walls. Teachers (and even our principal!) are stepping up by wearing the red Converse shoes on Early Release days.

Fantastic Fridays are back


The time of year is here for school to start early release days at to enable our teachers to have professional development—and that means that Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation is offering Fantastic Fridays again! This is an after school program on the 11 early release school days for children in grades 1st-5th.  Some parents may not be able to pick up their child or they may need additional options for having their child monitored for the extra period of time.
The program was developed to fill those needs and goes well beyond just a daycare program to being one that includes educational activities.  Each Friday will have a different theme, where the participants will have lessons prepared by a certified teacher and will also get to have interaction with guest speakers and activities. These Fridays will be filled with team-building activities, healthy snacks, educational material and lessons, and craft projects for the child.
On the 11 Fridays, the students will be escorted to Red Hawk Elementary and arrive by 2 p.m., and they will be actively engaged in the program until 5:30 p.m. Students will need to be picked up and signed out by that time.  The program is available for all eleven Fridays or on a pay as you go situation for each individual date. Families that qualify for free or reduced school lunches will be eligible to receive a full or partial scholarship by contacting the department and filling out an application, which is located on the 3rd floor of the C.S. Public Schools District Office (aka-Hilltop Building).
The program also gives high school students a chance to volunteer and assist with escorting students, leading activities and so much more. They can volunteer by contacting the high school volunteer coordinator or contacting the department at 696-7320 or emailing the director at director@csaparksandrec.com.
