Today, October 23 at 2 p.m., Cedarwood Elementary officially celebrates its 2014 California Distinguished School award with a fun-filled rally for students and staff.
The half-hour-long festivities will include a performance by Cedarwood’s choir, as well as messages from current Cedarwood Principal Teresa Barber and retired principal, Colin Hindergardt.
On April 30, four Clovis Unified elementary schools – Cedarwood, Dry Creek, Pinedale and Riverview – were named 2014 California Distinguished Schools by the California Department of Education. Only 424 schools in the state earned this prestigious recognition.
The California Distinguished Schools Program focuses on California’s students and their right to an equitable and rigorous education, according to the California Department of Education. The program identifies and honors those schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap.
