Jumping in Time


Mark Russell

This year the kids from the area were jumping. Really jumping. No, not with the normal excess energy they seem to possess. In today’s world, where Facebook and video games rule, this was a nice break. They participated in the annual Jump Rope for Heart Contest. The national event, sponsored by the American Heart Association, was organized by the physical education teachers.

A total of 421 students from Cedar View and Red Hawk Elementary as well as the Middle School enjoyed the day of jumping and music.

“These kids did a wonderful job raising donations for the event. They were thinking of others and that is something special,” stated PE teacher Mark Schumann.

Schumann, along with Steve Banagis stress wellness and physical activities all year in class.

Mr. Moleski’s class of fifth graders really got into the event. His class total donations were $ 1,627, with every single student contributing.

Mark Russell, a seventh grader, raised $250 to lead all kids. The total amount raised this year was $ 7,056.

Fun in the sun at the hunt


Cheap sunglasses were the rage at this year’s Post Community Easter Egg Hunt, as almost 400 kids and parents turned out for some fun in the sun at Red Hawk Elementary Saturday. We had blue skies, bright sunshine (60-plus degrees) and lots of colorful eggs and coins that were all gone in a flash! We had 16 winners. But everyone got something, and if kids didn’t find a specially marked egg, they went home with a consolation candy cup.

A special thank you goes out to all the parents for bringing their kids out; Cedar Springs Schools for allowing use of the field; Family Fare for providing the candy for the consolation prizes and thanks to those volunteers who helped build them; Classic Kelly’s Restaurant for providing 120 dozen eggs; The Cedar Springs Rotary for cooking and coloring the eggs; Cedar Springs United Methodist Church for the use of their kitchens; the Keystone Kops and the Cedar Springs Fire Department for running the hunt; Dan Randall for his donation of coins, and use of tables; the Red Flannel Queen and Court for helping with the hunt; all the Post staff members and their spouses who helped at the hunt, and of course, The Easter Bunny! A special thank you also goes out to all those who helped sponsor the hunt with a monetary donation (click here to view).

We’ve moved!


After 12 years at Hilltop, New Beginnings Alternative High School, along with R1TS, relocated over the summer to the vacant wing of Red Hawk Elementary.  This move has brought many exciting changes.  With additional room, and resources, the staff has been able to provide a library designed to offer students choice in reading material.  This is in conjunction with a new class being offered in the area of reading.  The early success of this program is evident in the increased participation and excitement students have shown in class.   In addition, the larger classrooms are more conducive to the lab setup required for the new math program we instituted 2 years ago. Technology continues to play a key role in our ability to offer a state of the art credit recovery program.  This improved facility has been a positive force in improving the students’ perception of their education and the importance of it.  This move has also proved to be beneficial to our R1TS programs.  The kitchen is much larger and better equipped and the students are in closer proximity to the R1TS retail store where they learn important work skills. These improvements have continued to strengthen our district’s mission with regards to our alternative high school as we strive to offer quality programs for all students.

Easter egg hunt rocks


By Judy Reed

Almost 400 excited kids and their parents turned out Saturday for the annual Post Community Easter Egg Hunt at Red Hawk Elementary Saturday, April 23.
The day was gray, but we didn’t get snowed or rained on! The kids had fun picking up eggs, finding coins, and getting either a winner’s basket or a consolation candy cup. (See photo collage on page ??) We had 16 winners, and you can find their pictures on our website at www.cedarspringspost.com.
The Post couldn’t put on this fun, family-friendly event without all the help it receives from the community! A special thank you goes out to: all the parents for making it out in the chilly weather; Cedar Springs Schools for allowing use of the field; Family Fare for providing the candy for the consolation prizes; McDonald’s for the coupons for free items; Julie Wheeler of Independent Bank, Donna Clark of the CS Library, Shelly of Family Fare, and Tracy Van Heck for helping Post staff member Bob Fitzgerald put together 400 candy cups; Classic Kelly’s Restaurant for providing 120 dozen eggs; The Cedar Springs Rotary for cooking and coloring the eggs; Cedar Springs United Methodist Church for the use of their kitchens; the Keystone Kops and the Cedar Springs Fire Department for running the hunt; Dan Randall for his donation of coins, and use of tables; the Red Flannel Queen and Court for helping with the hunt; all the Post staff members and their spouses who helped at the hunt (especially Bob for heading it up), and of course, The Easter Bunny! A special thank you also goes out to all those who helped sponsor the hunt with a monetary donation.
