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.

Our Vision

Cedar Hill is a professional learning community of students, educators, and parents recognized for the excellence of our safe, student-centered environment, the character of our students and staff, and the involvement of parents and community partnerships.

We have an unwavering commitment to engage in meaningful collaboration with peers, parents, and students to: discover and implement the best research-based practices; analyze student data; and make informed decisions about differentiated instruction and student learning.

Students actively engage in hands-on learning, utilize technology on a daily basis, and achieve individually at their highest level as lifelong learners who are prepared for a globally diverse society.


This and That

Class Lists- Please begin working 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.

Fifth grade- Please select award winners and Presidential Silver winners this week on Tuesday. (See me for PS)

RSVP for the Teacher Appreciation Banquet by April 14th.

Mid-terms go home on April 22. Please put a copy in my mailbox!

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. It is so disappointing when kids tell me "My teacher doesn't use the clip chart." Remember, PBS (and its components) is one of our building-wide commitments. 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.
