At Cedar Creek, all types of families are accepted and honored. For this reason we do not celebrate mother's day or father's day. Instead we celebrate FAMILY MONTH. From mid-May to mid-June, Cedar Creek celebrates family month. The curriculum centers around families—what a family is, who is in a family, animal families etc. Each child brings in a picture of his/her family and is encouraged to tell the class about who is in the picture. Pets are often included. The pictures are displayed for all to see. It is a celebration of diversity that helps a child see that we are all different and yet we are all alike—and that is a good thing.
