Our communication with you regarding your child’s progress is of primary importance to our staff at Cedar Elementary. As a school leader, I encourage both staff and parents to have fluid communications that are authentic and occur in a reasonable timeframe. As we start the second semester, we want to take a moment and get your opinion on how we are doing! Please complete the survey (the link appears below) by Friday, January 13th. If preferred, you may request a paper copy be sent home from our school office.
We appreciate all you do to make the Cedar School community a success and look forward to a wonderful 2017!
