Cedar Park Middle School - January 12, 2018

Principal's Message

Hello Cedar Park Families.

I hope you all had a great holiday season. This time last year we were buried in snow; we'll see what the rest of winter brings. Though it was a little odd to return to school on a Thursday, it was a nice way to ease back into the routines of school.

As we wind down the first semester, there are still many assignments and assessments to complete, and it's important that student's stay focused. ParentVue will help you monitor your student's progress and support conversations at home. Friday, February 2nd is a grading day, and students are not at school.

We are planning our cultural awareness week for February, a fitness day, and our first school social for the year, so watch your email for information. We look forward to seeing our students and their families at all our school events.

Thank you for being a partner in your child's education. Have a great January.
