I started at Cedarhurst Elementary School back in 1954 as a third grader when it first opened up. I only lived about 5 houses from the school on 7th Ave South. All of the kids on our block helped build that school. The construction guys were give us treats for helping them fill the foundation ditches with straw. Before the school was built it was all woods, a great place to get play cowboys and Indians as a child. That was back in the days when The Lone Ranger and Tonto were our heroes. I don t know what it is like today, but have very fond memories of it back in the 50s! Wouldn t mind showing it to our grandchildren someday.

As an educator and a parent I am pleased with my daughter's experience at Cedarhurst this year. She feels safe and cared for. She is excited to be part of the choir. I have seen improvement in her reading, writing, and math understanding. The principal is awesome and I expect to see great learning under her leadership.

The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
