Our Mission

Cedar Hill students, staff and families are committed to ensuring high levels of learning for all students and providing a positive, safe, and consistent climate that promotes student character.


Make sure to keep using the clip charts, tickets, 4:1, Skyhawk Bucks and classroom incentive charts. Now is the time to really reinforce the great behavior students are exhibiting!!!! We can do it!!! REVIEW EXPECTATIONS!!!

This and That. . .

Please make sure your beginning, middle, and end-of-the-year writing samples and their scoring guides are placed in each of your student's portfolios. Some portfolios are still in the teacher workroom! When all is complete with the portfolios, please place them back in the grade-level storage box in the lounge closet for the next grade level teachers.

Please make a phone call home to parents if you have any students making D's or F's. Share goals and plans for what the student needs to do to raise grades between now and the end of the year.

All SRI tests must be given prior to Friday. These student scores will be uploaded into the JCPS database this year, so we will not have to fill out any paperwork. YAY!

Class Lists- Please finish up on class lists for next year. Remember to divide up students by ability; gender; race; need; personalities. Please make sure to note students that should be separated in case changes have to be made before school starts due to movement in or out of the district.

Infinite Campus- Please update your grades each week by Tuesday.

Websites should be up-to-date.

Make sure to keep your high expectations for behavior and academics! Keep reviewing and practicing!!!! It is so important here at the end of the year. Utilize 4:1, tickets, clip charts, rewards, compliment charts, etc. Kids deserve to be recognized for great behavior!!

Be working on your instructional orders for next year. Give them to Gabe when you are finished!

Please clean your projection filters.


We will be having an afternoon of fun on Thursday, May 5th, for the students who earned their stars during MAP testing!
