Parents and Guardians are Always Welcome!
Cedars families are also encouraged to volunteer 20 hours per school year. There are many ways to earn volunteer hours, including attending PTO meetings and parent workdays, driving or chaperoning field trips and taking on specific projects as requested by the school such as:
- Playground clean-up
- Lunch and recess monitors
- Solicit donations from local businesses
Additional volunteer opportunities will be posted as the need arises. Volunteer hours can also be earned by making specific donations to the school. Contact Donna Bowen in the office if you are interested in helping with any of these volunteer opportunities.
The Cedars Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a large and active group of Cedars parents and staff. The Cedars PTO meets once a month to discuss ideas and plan fundraising activities to benefit Cedars educational programs. Cedars students also hold performances at PTO meetings throughout the year.
Assisting the Cedars International Academy Board of Trustees is the Governance Council, which is made up of elected parents, teachers, and community members. The Governance Council makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees and takes on specific assignments as necessary to ensure the successful operation of the school. The Council typically meets on the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm.
