Hispanic Heritage Celebration
The fifth grade celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month! The students in Ms.

created reports, and read books to learn more about many different
Hispanic cultures. Then, they enjoyed traditional food, music, clothing, and dancing. It was a fabulous fiesta!

Students, teachers, and administration showed their school spirit by wearing crazy hats!


Second Grade Is On A Mission

The second grade students learned about the Cedar Place School’s mission statement. The second graders discussed ways in which they could share the vision for their future and how they could accomplish the mission. They wrote about the things that they could do to help them reach academic success and help the school-wide community.
