FUNDS NEEDED-

As you may have heard, Mr Jackson looking for funds to purchase new uniforms for the Basketball team! They have not had new uniforms since 2003 and the ones that have survived are in sad shape. Our basketball team is an important activity at the school! It can really be a crucial motivator for some of our students and can really help students to feel connected to the school, other students and staff.  It can be a significant source of pride and self esteem boost many suffering from anxiety and depression so desperately need. 

We have had one family donate so far but are still in need of funds- if you can help please contact Ms Min at [email protected]

Thank you all for your consideration of this request and your support!

Help Needed with Basketball Uniforms

As you may have heard, Mr. Jackson, our Basketball Coach is looking to purchase new uniforms for the Basketball team! 

They have not had new uniforms since 2003 and the ones that have survived are in sad shape. Our basketball team is an important activity at the school! It can really be a crucial motivator for some of our students and can really help students to feel connected to the school, other students and staff.  It can be a significant source of pride and self esteem boost many suffering from anxiety and depression so desperately need. 

 

We have asked over 20 area PTSAs and Athletic Booster Clubs in our catchment area to help our PTSA fund this but also thought we would reach out to you in case you would be able to donate. 

 

Cedar Lane Dance Team Forms

The first ever Cedar Lane Dance Team is here! This team is for any student who is looking for a safe, structured space to express themselves creatively through music. Everyone is welcome to join, regardless of PBIS level or music background. We are looking for dancers, DJ’s, and music makers! Meetings will be held after school on Mondays and during some 4th period return days. Ask Ms. Watkins or Ms. Bobe for a permission slip. Any snack, drink, or gift card donations would be very much appreciated!

 

Cedar Lane Beautification Day is Thursday, April 21

This annual event has our entire building turn out to place mulch, plant and clean the garden areas around Cedar Lane.  The students love to participate in this as not only do they get Civics hours, they also get immediate satisfaction with a job well done.  We are in need of donations of perennials, which return each year to bloom more.  Some examples include:  Eastern Red Columbine, Eastern Bluestar, Butterfly-weed, Spiderwort, Blue Wild Indigo, Woodland Phlox, Eastern Rose-mallow, Black-eyed Susan, White Turtlehead, and as always Azaleas.  Drop your donations off at the main office or send them in with your student.  Thanks for helping out!

By mid-April, FCPS students will have unlimited access to 24/7, on-demand, online tutoring support services through Tutor.com.

Institute for The Arts for FREE

If any Cedar Students are on free/reduced lunch, they can get into IFTA for FREE if they sign up asap.  The free slots go quickly, and I want OUR kids to get them.  It’s a creative arts camp, where students can sign up for any class they are interested in and it gives them an intensive experience in that area.  “It’s a TREMENDOUS program, and I want our kids to get slots in the program!”  Contact Ms. McHugh:  [email protected] for further information.

Link for Free & Reduced Lunch Application here:  https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/food-and-nutrition-programs/free-and-reduced-price-meals

 

That’s great news b/c it’s historically been over $800 with NO financial aid or sliding scale for F/R meals! Student chose four modules that they’re interested in. But in addition to the arts, a student can choose for one of the modules to be EPF as a hybrid face-to-face credit, and/or one as Health/PE 9. So that makes it an even better deal (free credits), assuming the student is also interested in fine arts!  Contact Ms. Williams for credit information:  [email protected]

2022 Fairfax County Teen Job Fair Series 

This year’s fairs will be back in-person at West Springfield High School on March 12th from 1 - 3 p.m. and Chantilly High School on March 19th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

While most job seekers attending the fair are between ages 16 to 18, limited opportunities are sometimes available for students as young as 14. Job opportunities at the fair include full-time, part-time, seasonal, volunteer, and internship opportunities. In addition to job opportunities at the fair, students will also be able to attend a career-building workshop, like a Resume Workshop and Interviewing 101.  The best part of this fair is that it is completely free for students.

For students, you simply register here. There is no requirement to be a resident or student in Fairfax County, although the opportunities at the fair will be based in Fairfax County.  See [email protected] for more information.

What is SEL and why is Cedar Lane using it?

We define social and emotional learning (SEL) as an integral part of education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.  Please refer to this web site for further information.  https://casel.org/fundamentals-of-sel/

 

 

Social Media Sites Blocked for Students

Jan 3, 2022 News Release - Social Media

 

Internet Site Student Reports

There is a new functionality available to FCPS parents who are interested in knowing more about their child’s activity on an FCPS device. Parents can sign up to receive a weekly Parent Report from Lightspeed, our internet content filtering service, which will provide a list of the top sites the child visited that week. 

 

Additionally, if parents wish to get more detailed information, the weekly Parent Report offers parents the ability to self-sign-up to the free Internet Use Parent Portal. Parents who sign up for the Internet Use Parent Portal can log-in any time to see a little more detail about their child’s internet browsing. The portal also offers the parent added ability to “pause” access to the internet during non-school hours on the FCPS device.
