Have you seen Second Grade Superheroes at Cedar Place today? The second grade reading theme this week was Heroes! We read, discussed, and wrote about heroes in our every day life and superheroes from fictional stories. Today they were able to wear their favorite shirt with a hero on it! We had t-shirts with everyone from Captain America to Albert Einstein. Who is your hero?

Cedar Place School Lost & Found Project
Did you ever wonder what happens to the bin of lost mittens and sweaters that remain in the Lost and Found? When items are not claimed, that's when the Lost & Found Project begins! It is a school community project led by the Cedar Place Superstars. They are hanging up and organizing the lost items on a clothing rack to make it easier to find them. This will improve the Lost & Found site and it will help us all find our lost items! Thank you Superstars!
Food Bank For Westchester is leading the charge to end hunger. Twice a month, selected students receive non-perishables to help provide for families. We are fortunate to have such a caring community here at Cedar Place.
The Cedar Place students would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. Many of our students came up with ways to improve themselves. These resolutions will help guide us all through a successful new year.
