Dear CEDAR Families, 

Registration for the 2020/2021 CEDAR Academic year opens March 9th at 6pm.  This date is for returning families only.  
Registration for New Families to CEDAR begins on March 16th at 6pm, one week later.  

Soon, the new courses will be posted along with the new schedule.  We are thrilled to add new courses to both Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as changing the course structure of others.  You asked for them; they are beginning.  
Just to name a few:  
Speech  (1 semester  - ½ credit) both Fall and Spring 2nd hour on Tuesdays  
American History (full year -1 credit) Thursday mornings 1st hour (8am to 9:20am)
Middle School American History (full year) Thursday mornings 2nd hour (9:25 to 10:50am)
Fast Track Analytical Grammar adding a writing component will now be called English Intensive  

Math Lab will be from 9:30 to 12:30pm

And……Big News……

CEDAR4 opening this Fall for 4th grade students Thursdays from 12:15 to 3:30pm 
Keep watching the website for the new schedule, calendar (including August return dates) and courses.

February at CEDAR will be Friendly February.  Your Events Committee at CEDAR has something special planned for each Tuesday in February as we quietly commend those who intentionally show the love of Christ with random acts of kindness.  We want to always be showing kindness and recognize this doesn't need to be highlighted.  I believe we are all on the same page here.  For Friendly February at CEDAR, we are looking for evidence's of God's grace in our students. Instructors are helping us as well.  It's going to fun and you will be super encouraged by how easy this is to be friendly to others!  Right?  

Two events to mark on your calendar for March (outside of CEDAR Spring Break) are:
Taco Tuesday, March 10th  These are served to all students for $5.  
 Hoe Down   Friday, March 27th at 6:30pm  $5/person 

Last Day of CEDAR is April 30th and CEDAR Graduation is on May 9th at 3pm.  
Standardized Testing.  Elaine Cathcart will be conducting Standardized Testing at CEDAR to meet the year-end State requirement for students in 3rd through 12th grade.  The deadline to register for the May testing is in 3 weeks.  Do not delay in opening this link, printing off the form and submitting it to Mrs. Cathcart along with your payment.  
Upcoming Chapel Services:  February 11th, March 20th and April 14th (Senior Chapel)
