Cedar Ridge is a wonderful place for students, staff, and families! This year our theme is Unstoppable EAGLES! We pride ourselves in creating a warm welcoming school environment for everyone! The staff at Cedar Ridge is amazing and they work extremely hard focusing on the whole child. Our students are given many opportunities for 21st Century learning with our 1:1 iPad initiative, Balanced Literacy Approach, STEM, and Makerspace. These hands on learning opportunities personalize learning and increase engagement for our students. We offer KEY programming, Title 1, special education and interventionist support to meet each student’s academic needs. Starting in 5th grade we offer choir, orchestra, and band while all students go to music, physical education, art and Spanish on a rotating schedule. Our wonderful Eden Prairie Community education program offers a variety of fun classes to help enrich our students learning after the school day ends.
EAGLE Pride is very important to us at Cedar Ridge! As a district we focus on being safe, responsible and kind. As a school, we talk monthly about what that means and how it matches the Cedar Ridge expectations. We believe in proactively giving students strategies to help them focus and handle the stresses of student life. We do this with mindfulness training, breathing exercises, power poses, SMART room and Responsive Classroom.
We have an amazing PTO! They are excited, energetic and here to help the students and staff! Our main PTO events this year are our school wide Read-A-Thon, Carnival, and Parent Night Out. Our PTO also sponsors Artists in Residence, science night and countless classroom projects. We could not do it without the support of our amazing families! Go TEAM Eagles!
