At CTA, we have a lot to be thankful for! Our school may be small, but we have many fun and exciting things that happen every year. For the past three years, CTA Creates (a group of mothers, fathers, and grandmas) has brought art into the classroom. The amazing Mr. Holtrop has brought music, choir and drama back into our hallways as well.
CTA Creates is a group of volunteer families who love the arts and want to share that love with the students of CTA. These parents have created an art curriculum and volunteered to teach the elementary students every other Thursday this school year. At the end of the year, CTA Creates will celebrate the students’ creativity by putting on an art gallery. This year, the art gallery will be held on May 20 from 5-7:00 p.m. at CTA. Please join us on that day to view art that the students created throughout the year as they learned about different art techniques, artists and had the opportunity to use a variety of mediums.
Mr. Holtrop has brought so much to CTA and on May 3 that could not have been any more evident. The kindergarteners through second graders put on their own concert/play and sang four songs from the musical “Seussical”. We had Dr. Seuss characters galore on stage singing their hearts out! The third through fifth graders also shared their love for music by singing songs about spring. Not only did these classes sing, but the fourth and fifth graders also showed off their musical abilities with by playing the recorders. Thank you, Mr. Holtrop all of your hardwork has paid off!

Chaya Coxon had 11 points against the Huskies.
The Lady Red Hawks Varsity Basketball team made some tough shots when it counted last Friday to earn a 44-41 win over Forest Hills Northern.
The Red Hawks rolled out the welcome mat for the Huskies then jerked it away by taking an 8-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Huskies fought back toward the end of the second quarter, making their final five shots to tie it up 17-17 at the half.
In the third quarter, Rachael Ludtke scored Cedar’s first six points to give them lead. Chaya Coxon and Molly Holtrop added 3-pointers to extend the lead to 29-24 at the end of the quarter. The Huskies continued to battle it out in the fourth, and were within a single point with only 20 seconds left on the clock when the Red Hawks won the game at the free throw line, 44-41.
Top scorers for the Red Hawks were Rachael Ludtke with 12, and Chaya Coxon with 11. Molly Holtrop added 5, Hannah Wight had 5, Tiffany Karger and Meghan Andres tipped in 4 each, and Brittany Todd scored 2.
Coxon went 6 for 6 in free throws, and and Wight went 3 for 4. Karger was 2 for 3, and Ludtke 2 for 2.
“We out-rebounded the Huskies, and were very strong at the free-throw line (76 percent), particularly late in the game (Wight, Karger),” remarked Assistant Coach Chad Wight. “We recognize that those are key ingredients to being successful and winning games.”
Wight noted that the girls seemed to gel better as a team and got the job done. “We began to realize more of our potential tonight. We had a double-double from Rachel Ludtke underneath the basket, as well as a supporting cast of starters and bench-play that filled in the rest.
Rachael Ludtke charges the basket.
“We had some big shots down the stretch, particularly some treys from both Chaya Coxon and Molly Holtrop. Hannah Wight and Rachel Ludtke grabbed some huge rebounds for us in the closing minutes that kept us on top. The Huskies hit some threes to close the gap, but we never lost our intensity,” Wight added.
The Red Hawks are now 3-1 in conference play, and 6-2 overall.
