North Cedar News

One of the benefits of a small school district is that we can immerse ourselves in our community of learners. Get to know the movers and shakers in the North Cedar Community School District! Our News page is chock full of student and staff praise, helpful tips, and information about what’s new in the district.

Thank you, North Cedar Foundation!

A big thank you to the North Cedar Foundation for the money to buy more books at our levels. Reading books at our interest and reading level makes it more fun! We were also able to purchase some bouncy balls and scoop chairs to add to our flexible seating this year. Thank you!

Supply Lists

For the 2018-2019 school year, students should come equipped with the supplies necessary to help them succeed. It is difficult to specify supplies for all high school students since each student's course schedule is different, and each course instructor has different requirements. High school students should arrive on the first day of school with basic supplies. We can't wait for this coming school year to begin!

Knight Pride Field Day

Lowden Elementary students enjoyed many fun activities during their recent field day! Field day included seven different sessions for the kids to rotate through. These sessions included cups and downs, hungry hippo, chalk and bubbles, four corners, relay races, capture the flag, and kickball. Everyone had fun, even with the warm sun! When field day was over, we enjoyed an ice cream treat to help cool everyone down!

FBLA Guest Speaker

The importance of RSVPing, posting positive on social media, and developing good leadership habits now were just a few of the areas that guest speaker, Josh Sundstrom, stressed to the old and new North Cedar FBLA members. After the inspirational and informative speech, the group moved to the school’s foods lab where Kyle Proesch and Adrienne Driscoll served the members a crazy spaghetti meal.
