Recent studies show a link between nutrition and learning. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert allowing them to actively participate in class. This is why Cedar Springs Public Schools (CSPS) will be participating in the Universal Free Breakfast Program starting Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Breakfast will be free to ALL students regardless of income status in all of our buildings!

In addition, CSPS will be covering the cost of lunch for students who have qualified for reduced-price lunches, making these free for those who are enrolled in the program. If you have not filled out the reduced meal application, you can do so by visiting the family portal online and click on ‘apply for benefits’.

We are excited to offer breakfast to all our students as another way to support their academic success! If you have additional questions, you can reach out to our food services department at 616-696-0372.

MiMTSS District Data Utilization 2021-22

Recently, the MiMTSS Technical Assistance Center recognized our School at the Gold Level for our work toward implementing a Multi-Tiered System of Support in the area of Behavior and Reading!

By implementing MTSS, we increase the consistency of effective instruction, build staff knowledge and skills to equitably support all learners, use data to proactively identify and provide support for students, and create a positive culture that nurtures relationships with students and their families, and communities. This strong foundation helps learners gain the skills needed to realize their life dreams!
