Cedarbrook K-8 Center - Principal's Corner

Greetings Cedarbrook K-8 Center Family,

Welcome to a new and exciting school year at Cedarbrook K-8 Center. We hope that you had a great summer! The Cedarbrook administration, leadership team and custodial team have been working diligently in preparation for the 2016 – 2017 school year. We hope that you are looking forward to “Opening Day” on Tuesday, September 6, 2016.

As with last year’s opening, we invite all Fathers to join us for our 2nd Annual Cedarbrook Fathers March and Opening Day Convocation at 8:15 m. on school playground.

CEDARBROOK K-8 CENTER IS A UNIFORM SCHOOL.  It is our expectation that your child wears the school uniform daily. We have the best and brightest students and we expect that to be reflected in our students’ behavior and performance accomplishments. Parents please know that our quest is to provide your child with a rigorous instructional program.  Their success is our success. Our expectations are high and the instructional programs will be challenging yet rewarding. You will learn more about our program offerings during our Back to School Nights.
                                          
Grades K-5:         Wednesday, September 21st                 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Grades 6-8:          Thursday, September 22nd                    6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

This year we are encouraging parents to fill out lunch applications online. Please visit www.plainfieldnjk12.org, click on the drop box “Quick Links” and select “Online Lunch Applications”ONE FORM PER FAMILY, PLEASE! If you have a Direct Certified status (DC) DO NOT FILL OUT THE APPLICATION. It is important to remember that ALL Kindergarten students will pay for lunch until your application is processed. The fee for lunch is $1.70.  Online lunch applications will be processed quicker! If you are unable to complete the application online, you may pick-up an application in the main office - paper applications will not be sent home.

If you haven’t signed up for a Parent Portal account, we encourage you to, please visit the Main Office to sign up. The Parent Portal allows you to access your child’s attendance, grades and communicate with your child’s teacher from your computer or smart phone.

Parents play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore, school/parent communication is vital. Make your child’s attendance and prompt arrival to school a priority. STUDENTS ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 8:05 AM. INSTRUCTION WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY. We, the administration and staff will walk through the door everyday prepared to meet the ultimate goal of educating your child. Please send your children to us well behaved, on time, equipped with the proper materials and encouraged. We, in turn, will send them home to you prepared to meet the demands of the future. Your presence is not only welcomed, it is needed. Enjoy the remaining days of summer with your child.

With You For Children,
Gwynetta Y. Joe
