North Cedar Football vs. Clayton Ridge

The North Cedar High School football team recently took the field against Clayton Ridge. A special thank you goes out to senior yearbook staff member Darby Hawtrey and sophomore yearbook staff member Breylee St. John for capturing the team in action.


Dot Day

On Thursday, September 14 and Friday, September 15 Mrs. Elloren and Mrs. Horman helped the students in Lowden celebrate Dot Day. It is a worldwide celebration with almost 10 million educators and students in 169 countries celebrating creativity and courage. Dot Day was started in 2009 by an educator as an invitation to students to be creative and experience a breakthrough in confidence and courage, starting a journey of self-discovery. The dot is a story of a perceptive and caring teacher who reaches a reluctant student who thinks she can't draw by encouraging her to be brave enough to just make a mark and see where it takes you. It is fun to see what the kids come up with as they create their dot and how creative they are. Some used the app Quiver to make their dots come alive.

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for EducationOur school collects Box Tops for Education, and we would absolutely love it if you could collect them and send them to your child’s North Cedar Elementary classroom.

You can find them on lots of packages, everything from school supplies to taco shells. Each regular Box Top clipping is worth ten cents, and those can add up quickly when we all turn them in.

Thank you in advance for your participation and happy snipping.
