Another Wonderful Week at Cedar Hill

I want to say a huge thank you to the entire staff! Our first Skyhawk Scoop night was a success! The parents who attended have provided wonderful, heartfelt thank yous to the staff! Parents appreciated getting to hear more in-depth information from their child's teacher and being able to ask questions after hearing about routines, procedures and expectations! The parents that have personally stopped me and called the front office wanted each of you to know how much they appreciated your time and dedication to the students at Cedar Hill! Your caring nature and love for what you do shines through! Keep it up! It will be even better next year!!!! Have a fantastic three-day weekend! Relax and enjoy the weather!
