Success is.........the reward for doing your best!
The Toronto District School Board's Mission is "to enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and to acquire the knowledge, skills, and values they need to become responsible members of a democratic society."
In order to support the TDSB's Mission, Cedarbrook staff members strive each day to ensure that all students' needs are being met (academic, social, emotional and physical).
Cedarbrook Public School held its official opening on Thursday, November 27, 1958. Like the community in which it was situated, the name Cedarbrook came from the name of the original farm owned by Mr. Frank Goforth. Eleven years later, in September 1969, John McCrae Sr. P. S. opened, and Cedarbrook became a junior school. During September 2008, Cedarbrook and the community celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the school. In September 2011, Cedarbrook changed back to a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school. Full Day Kindergarten and grade 7 programs were offerred to the community.
The Cedarbrook Community
Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 students who live between Markham and Bellamy Road and Eglinton and Lawrence Avenue attend Cedarbrook Jr. P. S. In addition, Cedarbrook offers Full Day Kindergarten and an Extended French Program for students in grade 4 to 8.
TRIBES and Character Education
TRIBES agreements of attentive listening, the right to pass or participate, appreciation, no put-downs and mutual respect are used in the classrooms to help build a community of learners.
Monthly, the Cedarbrook community gathers to celebrate and highlight students who portray positive character traits.
At Cedarbrook, the staff is committed to ongoing Professional Development focused on improving instruction and student achievement in Literacy and Numeracy. Resource allocation also supports the focus of improving Literacy and Numeracy resources in our classrooms and library. Technology improvements have also been made.
At Cedarbrook, students can choose from a very strong co-curricular program. From school musicals to choirs to sports teams, there are numerous choices for students to get involved in activities outside of the classroom. Cedarbrook staff members are committed to offering students a wide range of exciting opportunities throughout the year.
Cedarbrook is an eco school where students, parents and staff plan and work together on initiatives that bring awareness to students about the many ways in which they can make a positive difference in their environment and the world in which we all live.
