Saturday Academy FAQ
What is the Saturday Academy?
A unique way for students with absences to recover lost instructional time. Attending one Saturday will erase one full-day absence (suspensions not included.) We have fun learning new things together, and all Cedar students are invited to attend!
What time do I drop my student off?
8:15 am at the MPR entrance (flag pole parking lot).
What time do I pick up my student?
12:30 pm at the MPR entrance and front of the school.
Will there be transportation?
No, busing will not be provided. You’ll need to drop-off and pick-up your student.
Are breakfast and lunch provided?
We can provide breakfast for your student. Please return the bottom portion of your student’s Super Saturday Academy invitation and check “yes” for breakfast.
Does my student need a backpack or chrome book?
No. We will supply everything your student needs for the morning.
Can I pick up my student early? Will that effect the attendance issue?
Yes, you may pick up your student early. They will still get full credit for attendance.
What will my student be learning?
Our talented Cedar teachers offer their expertise to our students on Saturdays. We have had autumn crafts, stage drama, persuasive public speaking, science experiments, and more!
What if my student hasn’t been absent yet? Can he/she attend and it will cover a future absence?
Sorry, no “banking” allowed.
What if my student didn’t receive an invitation? Can he/she still attend?
We invite all Cedar students to attend! We look forward to having your student here with us Saturday.
Is there a Super Saturday Academy every Saturday?
We have a Saturday Academy, generally, once a month. The dates are as follows; 9/30/17, 10/21/17, 12/2/17, 2/3/18, 3/3/18, 4/27/18, 5/12/18.
