Cedar Springs Public Schools

Purpose. Potential. Pride.

June 2022 Update

Summer continues to be a great season to be a Red Hawk! The activity level around campus is still buzzing, with summer learning, preparing buildings for next year, marching band camp, athletic camps, and bond construction projects contributing to a steady stream of movement in each of our schools. August 24, 2022, is right around the corner. We can’t wait!
On any given day this summer, we will have nearly 400 students, teachers, and support staff working together on fun learning activities at Cedar Trails Elementary and at Cedar Springs Middle School. Members of our high school marching band, athletes, coaches, and instructors are some of the first groups on campus in the morning. They often stay late into the evening, focused on preparing for the upcoming competitive seasons. 
We have an army of contractors with their heavy equipment working hard on large-scale projects at Cedar Springs High School, Red Hawk Intermediate, and Cedar View Elementary. We also have teams painting, cleaning, and preparing various locations in each of our schools. Our Technology Department is working on refurbishing our fleet of Chromebooks in preparation for another school year.  Lastly, our teachers and administrators are also engaged in summer learning to prepare for the new school year. 
We encourage each of our students, their families, and our staff to make time for two things this summer. First, make time for summer reading. Pick up a good book that makes you happy or helps you learn something new. Second, have some fun between now and the beginning of the new school year. Spend time with family and friends doing things that make you laugh. Laughter is a great way to recharge your spirit.
The 2021-2022 school year was marked by both challenge and growth. Students, families, and staff engaged in classroom and extracurricular activities like never before. As we move forward into the new school year, we will apply what we learned this year to better support our students and families in the future. Your Red Hawk team is working hard this summer to make essential improvements to be ready to welcome students back on August 24!
We can. We will. We are. TOGETHER!
