Cedar Trails Elementary is full of amazing volunteers and we’d like to say THANK YOU to every one of them: PTO, classroom volunteers, TA’s, mentors, etc.! We are going to highlight two groups in this article: the Cedar Trails PTO and the Resurrection Life Mentors.
The Cedar Trails PTO does so many things behind the scenes that people may be unaware of. They put on the Walk-a-thon, run the Book Fairs, count all the Box Tops, organize conference dinners for teachers, organize and run Cookies with Santa, purchase much needed items for the classrooms, and many other things! Most recently, they were able to purchase over $5,00 worth of items for the children to use (art easels, art drying racks, sensory tables, and play kitchen sets). The teachers are so grateful to the PTO for supporting our young learners’ needs. Every item purchased will be able to be used for years to come! Thank you, PTO!
Resurrection Life Church in Rockford has a mentoring program that many students have been able to access at school. We currently have over 15 mentors working with students at Cedar Trails. These mentors are available to play games, read, complete work, and have fun doing other activities with students. Most importantly, these mentors are able to build relationships with kids! Thank you, Resurrection Life Mentors for making a difference!
