Cedar Heights Gets High Achievement 2009: By Michelle

Cedar Heights gets high achievement

BY MICHELLE GEORGE • The Eagle-Gazette Staff • May 17, 2009 LANCASTER – It’s an elementary school that boasts a student council, a safety
patrol of about 20 children and a highly-active and involved parent teacher organization. And now Cedar Heights Elementary School students and teachers can say they’re part one of the finest elementary schools in the state. Lancaster’s Cedar Heights Elementary School was one of eight schools recognized in April by the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators. The eight finalists were selected from 44 nominations across the state. The OAESA is an association serving Ohio’s elementary and middle level school administrators, as well as central office administrators who have an interest in pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade education, according to its Web site. Principal Jeromy Sheets will accept the award, called the 2009 Hall of Fame Award, June 30 at a luncheon. This is the first time Cedar Heights Elementary School has been recognized as a Hall of Fame school. The award has existed since 1984.
“It felt great,” said Sheets upon hearing the school received the award. “We had talked to the students and told them how important this award was, so they were just thrilled when they heard we won.”
