North Cedar News
One of the benefits of a small school district is that we can immerse ourselves in our community of learners. Get to know the movers and shakers in the North Cedar Community School District! Our News page is chock full of student and staff praise, helpful tips, and information about what’s new in the district.
On April 4 and 5, we will hold our preschool and kindergarten round-up for the 2019–2020 school year. Round-up will be at both Lowden and Mechanicsville Elementary buildings. Preschool round-up is on April 4 and kindergarten round-up is on April 5. For complete details, please see our preschool and kindergarten round-up newspaper.
Mrs. Walker's first grade students spent a week learning about the differences between their lives and the way things were when Martin Luther King, Jr. was alive. They shared these new learnings with older students in the building and had great conversations! They are now working to be courageous leaders, just like Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mrs. Walker's first grade students in Mechanicsville officially became published authors! They worked through the entire writing process to contribute to their very own class book, and the bound copies recently arrived in the mail. If you see them around, they would love to give you their autographs!
Lowden students who brought back their winter reading challenge paper earned a hot chocolate party thanks to KCO! After the party, the students participated in a paper snowball fight in the gym. There were lots of laughs and fun. Thank you to the parents who helped support their student(s) in reading over break.
We would like to thank the North Cedar Foundation for helping us add about 150 new books to our library. We truly appreciate it!
Based on his exceptionally high score on his Microsoft Office Specialist MOS PowerPoint 2016 certification exam, he has become Iowa’s champion and may compete in Certiport’s 2019 Microsoft Office Specialist U.S. National Championship, if he would like. Congratulations, Jacob!
Mrs. Koch is proud to announce that Samantha Kremer has successfully passed the Microsoft Office 2016 Word Specialist Exam. This gives her the right to include this certification on her resume as it is a business industry exam (not a high school exam). Congratulations, Samantha!
