Cedar Creek Middle School (CCMS) opened 20 years ago this month and has a variety of activities planned to mark the event for current students and alumni.
Principal Bart Elliott is organizing the event. "As a parent, principal and community member, Cedar Creek has been a big part of my life and the lives of the people of Youngsville," he said.
On Friday, Jan. 25 students will take part in a schoolwide assembly and learn about Cedar Creek over the last 20 years.
Students will be eligible to receive one of 20 presents, representing each year, to be given out randomly.
That evening, alumni are welcome back to attend an evening of sports, food, and fun. Anyone who attended Cedar Creek will be able to get into the girl's and boy's basketball games free! Families are encouraged to attend, purchase dinner from one of several food trucks and make an evening of it, Elliott said.
Between the games, there will be a presentation with guest speakers. During the boys' half-time, there will be a drawing for lifetime entry to all Cedar Creek Middle School sporting events.
If you have questions about the event, want to attend or would like to contribute contact Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
