Cedarwood School’s
Christmas Angels  

Annual Service Project

The students of Cedarwood School are privileged to take part in a community service project during the holiday season.  This year’s Christmas Angels are children from our community that have been referred to us by the Department of Children and Family Services. These children are under the care of DCFS and experienced extreme neglect, abuse, and unstable home environments.  Our students have the opportunity to make a memorable Christmas for these children by fulfilling their wish lists!!!

Elementary School (PreK 4-7th Grade) - Adopt an angel.  Encourage your children to do chores and/or other means to earn money to contribute to the class angel fund.  The money collected from each class will be used to purchase the toys from the angel’s list. Please send cash donations only in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it no later than December 10, 2021 by 8:00 am. 

Preschool  2’s & 3’s - Children and their families can participate by donating new, unwrapped toys. The toys can be delivered to school in carline and will be presented to the agency during a special assembly. Gifts must be received no later than December 16, 2021 by 8:30 am.

    • Elementary School (PreK 4-7th Grade) - Deliver cash money to your child’s teacher in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it.
