STRATEGIC PLANNING SURVEY LINKS
Our School District is currently invested in strategic planning.

With that in mind, we have decided to re-open our survey submission window. If you have not done so already, please take time to personally fill out a survey between today and November 30. Your voice is a critical element of our planning process, and we do not want it to go unheard. Thank you so much for filling out a survey.

CEDARBROOK THEATER PROUDLY PRESENTS THE WITCHES TONIGHT
When one little boy unwittingly stumbles into the annual meeting of witches, he hears their nasty plan to get rid of all the children in the world – by turning them into mice! It’s going to take smarts and sneakiness to stop them and not get squished in the process.
Think you can outwit a witch and outrun a mouse? Then grab a front-row seat tonight, November 13 at CHS's Little Theater as CBK Theatre proudly presents its Fall Play, The Witches. The performance begins at 7:30 and tickets are $8.
All theatergoers should enter through the Cedarbrook Central doors across from the tennis courts. Please do not use the main entrance or the entrance by the large parking lot.
