Cedar Ridge Academy Student Talent Show

On May fourth two students organized Cedar Ridge's fourth ever talent show! There was a great variation in acts ranging from singing and dancing to stand-up comedy. There were three objective judges and two MC's who told bad jokes the entire time. Overall the night was a success and a lot of the students and staff enjoyed themselves!

MEMORIAL CLEAN-UP

On April 21, 2012 the trasitional home set out to clean the memorial dedicated to a former student. The memorial is the eye of Cedar Ridge. Our purpose of this activity was to trim the plants and remove the weeds and basically make it look appealing to visitors. This project is a service to the whole campus, visiting parents, and future prospects interested in Cedar Ridge Academy. The most fun part of this activity was that we the transitional home all got to hang out and complete a service project as a whole. Somethings that would have made the day more enjoyable are cooler weather and more teamwork participation. One thing we learned from the activity is that preparation and communication are key elements to success. Our perspectives changed along with our attitudes throughout the activity going from lazy and scattered to organized and productive. The long term affect will be an honor to the family of the memorial for years to come because this project has inspired Cedar Ridge students to go above and beyond to make sure the memorial stays clean and beautiful. Many thanks go out to the transitional home with the inspiring leadership skills led by Kathlene and Nick.
