    • Dresses or skirts no shorter than 3” above the knee
    • Suits
    • Shirts (with or without ties) including t-shirts
    • Blouses, Sweaters, and Vests
    • Shorts and Bermuda shorts no shorter than 3” above the knee
    • Any color/print/pattern combination that represents the spirit days


    Unacceptable wear:

    If students show up to school dressed in clothes that are not appropriate, they will be asked to change into loaner clothes or a parent will be called to bring in acceptable clothes.

    Here are some quick tips of what you need so you can sign up and be ready for practice:

    1. Current physical on file! There is a physical form on the district website, but you can get one from any doctor’s office.

    2. Online Paperwork completed.

       a. Go to your MyBethel log-in and sign in to view your child’s info.

       b. Once you select your child, in the upper-right hand corner there is a link that says District Links (it looks like a house). Click this and choose Athletics.

       c. Depending on the operating system that you are using, please make sure that you scroll down every page or use the arrow keys to go the bottom of each page.

       d. When selecting the sports that your child will be doing, pay attention to the season for each. You can sign up for more that one season at a time. e. Once you have entered through all the information make sure you continue through until you get a confirmation page. You will need to say yes to printing even if you can’t. You must get to the confirmation page in order for all the info to update to the school.

    If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to shoot me an email or leave a message. I will do my best to get back to you ASAP. Email will result in a faster response.

Principal's Message

  • Cedarcrest Families,  

    First let me say how excited we are to get our students back in the building and back to learning!  The Cedarcrest leadership team has been hard at work this summer, planning, preparing, and ultimately dreaming of the success that we can help your students forge for themselves this year.

    As we move into the 2018-19 school year I am excited to introduce you to an important staff member joining the CMS team:

    Julia Butela is joining our team as an Assosciate Administrator.  Mrs. Butela is a National Board Certified teacher and recent Dean of Students who is joining us from the Franklin Pierce School District.  She brings lots of experience with Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, and we are excited to have her working with our admin team, our students, staff, and you to maintain a safe and effective learning envoronment and support the success of all students here at CMS.

    Please keep a close eye on our website for our upcoming back-to-school events (WEB day / Get Your Stuff), and be sure to seek out Mrs. Butela and introduce yourself.  While you’re at it, be sure to connect with me as well.  I can’t wait to see you all and reconnect with the reason we’re all here, your kids!
