After School Programs
After school programming at Cedarwood is offered to compliment the school day experience while providing age-appropriate activities to nurture our students.
Programming for Grades 1-5 intend to enrich the school day experience. Activities include circus arts, tumbling and movement games, theater arts and cooking class. These programs are provided by Cedarwood and several outside organizations.
The Middle School Program is aimed at developing skills useful for learning in the classroom and becoming leaders in the community. Math Lab and Spanish Lab offer students additional practice in these subjects, time to complete homework, and opportunities for teacher and peer support. A High School Entrance Exam Test Prep course is taught each autumn to help students prepare for SSAT and HSPT exams.
After school activities for middle school students also provide the opportunity to try on a variety of creative skills and hobbies. Middle School Ensemble, Lego Robotics Club, Yoga for Mind and Body, Pastry Chef Training, and seasonal sports supplement the school day in a fun way.
Middle School programs in development include Cedarwood Cares Club (volunteer service and student leadership) and Speech and Debate Club. We are always looking for community members to share their talents with our students. If you have a skill, talent, or knowledge you'd like to share, please contact Emma Maruska, Middle School Support Teacher, by email or (971) 285-4702.
