|Cedarbrook K-8 Center - Principal's Corner
Greetings Cedarbrook K-8 Center Family,
“And I've said this all across the country when I talk to parents about education, government has to fulfill its obligations to fund education, but parents have to do their job too. We've got to turn off the TV set, we've got to put away the video game, and we have to tell our children that learning is not a passive activity, you have to be actively engaged in it. If we encourage that attitude and our community is enforcing it, I have no doubt we can compete with anybody in the world.”
As a Cedarbrook K-8 Center Community, we have chosen to celebrate African American History and its impact on the world. We will hold several events in celebration. Please see our calendar of events. We invite you to come out and celebrate with us. We all stand on the shoulders of our ancestors who made it possible for every child in America to receive an education.
I am pleased to announce the pick for Principal’s Book of the Month,Jacqueline Woodson's This is the Rope: A Story From the Great Migration, illustrated by Coretta Scott King Award–winning illustrator James Ransome. This is the story of one family’s journey north during the Great Migration It begins with a little girl in South Carolina who finds a rope under a tree one summer. She has no idea the rope will become part of her family’s history. But for three generations, that rope is passed down, used for everything from jump rope games to tying suitcases onto a car for the big move north to New York City, and even for a family reunion …where that first little girl is now a grandmother. I hope you enjoy the pick,
With You For Children,
