The community garden at Cedar Place is beautiful! Thank you to a school wide effort, including administrators, teachers, students and parents who planted and will care for flowers, in order to make our school more beautiful than it already was.

Devon McDonald Retired NFL Player for the Colts came and spoke to the 5-8th graders.  He was an amazing motivational speaker who touched on Self-Esteem, Bullying, Suicide, Success and Self worth.  The students were in awe of him and truly enjoyed listening to him.

ATT Junior Achievement invited 25 of our 7th and 8th grade students to visit ATT in white plains and learn about how the technology part of the business works.  They gave our students breakfast lunch and had them write up their own phone app.  The students had a great time and learned a lot while having fun.

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade student in Mrs. Curry's Superstars class released their butterflies on Earth Day. The students received them as caterpillars, they watched them as they formed into chrysalises and then were overjoyed when they became butterflies. The students took pride in feeding the butterflies and taking care of them daily. The students were very excited to release the butterflies, it was a beautiful experience for the students. 

The Students at Cedar Place got ready for the NYS Assessments with a pep rally!

Have you heard about the Cedar Place School Gateway Expanded Day? It provided a great experience for our students!   Forty of our students attended a dance performance at SUNY Purchase on Friday April 1st at 6:30 pm. The performance consisted of mixture of modern dance and ballet. Our students were very excited and truly enjoyed the performances

The second grade had a special artist visit and conduct a drama lesson with the students to prepare for their trip to SUNY Purchase.

The Cedar Place Science Fair was a great success. Thank you to all who participated! The projects were exciting, informative, and fine examples of the learning that happens here at Cedar Place.

Ms.Garufi from the CURB Nature center taught students about the Hudson River; an ecosystem in our own neighborhood. She conducted a science experiment with the students determining three types of water samples from the Hudson River. The students are eager to visit Ms. Garufi at the CURB nature center for a River Seining Program.
