Fall Festival Preview

FallFest 01
Every year, there is an annual fall festival put on by the staff and students at Cedar Key School. The Festival is planned out and primarily run by the PTO. (Parent Teacher Organization) The purpose of this event is to raise money for the school and clubs to put towards educational resources. Even though this festival is not as large as the Seafood or Arts Festivals downtown. it is a fun-raiser and a fundraiser.
Each club, organization, and class opens a booth to represent them. Some of the activities at the festival include, fingerprints, pictures, buttons, touch tank, a basket raffle, turkey tickets and some Cedar Key school spirit t-shirts sold by PTO. The games at the festival this year are the cakewalk, softball toss, king kong toss, the duck pond, water balloon toss, a ring toss, a bounce house, basketball shoot, and the dart throw. Which are all purchased with tickets.
This year’s Fall Festival is taking place on Friday, November 4th. It will begin at 5:00 p.m and goes until 8:00 p.m. It is going to be held out in the field in front of the gym. In the  recent years the Fall Festival has been very productive for the school with the help of volunteers. Some organizations that have volunteered in previous years are the Garden Club, the Lions Club, The police and fire departments, and the Methodist Church. If you would like to help out this year contact the school at 543-5223 for details.
They will provide multiple food options for you and your entire family to enjoy. The food provided will be the sweet shop run by the middle school, hot dogs and chili, chowder, french fries, hamburgers and chips, and a fish dinner, with water and soda for refreshments. The food at the festival can be bought with tickets or money. Once the fall festival ends at 8 p.m., middle and high school students can attend a dance being held in the auditorium until 10 p.m. at a cost of $5 per person.
Come enjoy the CKS 2016 Fall Festival!

CKS Junior Varsity Hi-Q team won the most recent match between Cedar Key and Trenton by nearly 100 points.

Trey Stanfield, Michele DiBari, Grace Cowart, and River Wirth used some serious brain power and blew the Trenton Tigers out of the water on this one. With a final score of 135 to 37, it’s safe to say 
the Sharks won by a landslide.
The entire team worked together as everyone did contribute to answering the questions and collaborating to figure out the bonus questions. It was incredibly impressive win for the new CKS Junior Varsity teams first game. Go Sharks!

PumpkinPatch oct2016 xe


Ms. Patty Shewey’s first grade class was among those who enjoyed their time at the United Methodist Church’s annual Pumpkin Patch.
The United Methodist Church was at it again with its annual Pumpkin Patch, sponsored by the United Methodist Women. This is the 10th year that students have enjoyed a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch.
As in past year’s, one grade at a time made the walk from Cedar Key School to the church for a morning of fun. UMC Pastor Susie Horner said every student receives a free pumpkin and all donations go into the following year’s Pumpkin Patch. The event starts with fun pumpkin filled arts and crafts then proceeds to go into Pumpkin themed goodies like the Pumpkin teeth which one student thought looked oddly similar to candycorn.
