Welcome to the Cedar Grove Middle School community, as you enter our school you will notice
we have a special close knit educational community. Cedar Grove promotes the academic and
social development of all students in a safe and friendly environment. Our four expectations for
student success are: Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Persevere.
I am honored to be beginning my second year at Cedar Grove Middle School and look forward
to working with all students, staff, and parents. My goal this year is to provide each student a
year’s worth of growth in each subject.
Our dedicated staff at Cedar Grove serves approximately 480 students in grades 6-8. In
addition to the core curriculum our school offers gifted and learning support services, reading
support (including Cracking the Code), math support, guidance services, and instructional
support services. Cedar Grove students also have the opportunity to participate in two of the
specialty areas per semester: art, physical education, band, chorus, Battle of the Books, and
technology. Students in the seventh and eighth grade have the opportunity to participate in the
following athletic programs: cheerleading, football, cross country, girls and boys soccer,
volleyball, girls and boys basketball, wrestling, softball, baseball, track and field, and golf.
Parents/Guardians are always welcome at our school. We view our parents/guardians as equal
partners in providing our students with meaningful educational experiences. Further, we
encourage you to become active participants in school programs and classroom activities.
Parents who would like to help in the school or on class trips will need to obtain the necessary
volunteer background checks and clearances before beginning. There are many ways to
support your child such as volunteering to help in the classroom, volunteering for the
PTA (Parent Teacher Association) or PAC (Parent Advisory Council), or attending one of our
many school programs. We certainly understand many of you lead busy lives, and it is often
difficult to volunteer at school. However, just as important as volunteering is a nightly routine of
reading with your child, checking homework, talking about their day and getting them prepared
for the next school day.
I am excited to be part of such an outstanding team! We invite you to join our community as we
work together to best serve our students! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have
a suggestion, concern or just a “good ole story” to share. I look forward to working with you and
Welcome to Bulldog Country!
