Cedarbrook K-8 Center - Principal's Corner

January 2018

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically... Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Although the weather outside is frigid and the days have shortened, the hallowed halls of Cedarbrook K-8 Center are warm with learning and bright with education.  As we begin 2018, I would like to take this time to remind you of the three pillars that we stand upon at Cedarbrook K-8 Center – positivity, productivity and pride. It is our goal to develop students into strong independent thinkers who are able to problem solve and take interest in the uplift of the community.  It is entirely fitting that we take a moment to pause and reflect upon the life’ work of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  We at Cedarbrook K-8 Center want every child to stand as shining examples of “intelligence plus character” (M.L. King, Jr.). In remembrance of Dr. King, we invite all to honor his legacy by giving back to the community. Use January 15th as not just a day off from school but a “Day On” for community service.

The month of January also marks the beginning of 2018 calendar year.  It is important for students, parents, teachers and administrators to remain focused on what we have accomplished and follow through to the end of the year.  This year brings a renewed enthusiasm to continue and expand on our current successes and strive towards excellence in all areas-academically and social emotionally.  Schools are closed in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Day on January 15, 2018.  We have also declared January Cedarbrook – Panthers for Peace Month.
