Dear Cedar Mountain Families,


There are so many great things about this month that make it special. February is the month of LOVE with Kindness Week, Valentine’s Day, and Love of Reading/Read Across America Week. We will celebrate the 100th day of school on February 14th! (as long as we don’t have any snow days between now and then). It is also starting to stay lighter a little bit longer. Is Spring right around the corner? Will Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow or not?! February is a time for magical learning in the classrooms when our students begin to hit their stride and “get it.” Teachers and students are starting to see that their hard work is paying off! 


Cedar Mountain Primary School is participating in the American Heart Association Kids Heart Challenge this month. Mr. Hernandez will have an assembly for students on Friday, February 10th to kick it off! Flyers/Donation forms will be sent home that day as well.
