Today was the first day back for our teachers and staff members. We are busily preparing for your children to begin school on August 9th. Our school-wide theme this year is "Camp Cedarcrest - Where Learning is an Adventure!" We have a lot of exciting events and activities planned for your children in the upcoming school year, and we can not wait to see our students!
We are welcoming some new faces at our school this year, and we would like to tell you about a couple of them. First of all, we are welcoming back Mrs. Matthews as our Principal. Ms. Matthews filled in for Ms. Batiste last semester, and this year she will be working full-time as our new Principal.
We would like to introduce Mrs. Savant. Mrs. Savant is coming to us from Istrouma Middle Magnet school, where she was the Magnet Coordinator. Previously, she worked at the Baton Rouge Visual and Performing Arts where she taught both Kindergarten and 3rd grade. She will be our new Assistant Principal.
Another familiar face this year is Ms. Greenidge. Mrs. Greenidge has been working for several years at our school, and this year she has changed her position at our campus. You can now find her in the school's office as our new Executive Secretary.
We are happy to welcome these ladies to our Cedarcrest Family!
