SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT
February 3, 2020
The past two months have been busy ones for students at Cedarview Middle school. While lots of learning has been taking place in the classrooms, many sport championships have also been won.
In December the Senior band performed at the annual Christmas concert, Jingle Bells being one of their top songs.
The Cedarview Hawks volleyball team earned a spot in the championships which were held in January. The Hawks sustained a strong phoenix push in the second set to take home gold.
The boy’s volleyball also pushed their way to the OCDSB board championship, with Broadview Public winning Silver.
On January 16, students from John McCrae visited Mr. Mills’ class to share their kindness project which aims to spread positivity.
Tower gardens have also arrived at the school with lots of green goodness growing. This is a great opportunity for the grade 7 students to participate in hands- on learning and pick up a green thumb.
The schools Earth Bud club members went around to classes asking important questions about recycling to educate them on proper practices. They learned that contaminated pizza boxes go in the green bit and things like Styrofoam and plastic bags don’t go in the blue bin. One class at a time the Earth Buds are helping to save the environment.

It was also a busy week for sports in the school community. It was a tough loss for the tier one boys football team on October 15, but a big win for the girls tier one team. They went undefeated and won gold! Congratulations to both teams for giving it their all!
