Cultural Connections

We Love our Diverse Sea Wolf Community!

Our families at Cedar Wood represent cultures and backgrounds from all over the world. This diversity gives us the opportunity to learn from one another so that our children grow up to become more aware of the world around them and the variety of perspectives which make up our society. We welcome all families into our Cedar Wood community and hope you will engage in some of our activities we have going on at the school!

Cultural Connectors Program

Cultural Connectors are families who support new families to our Cedar Wood community in navigating Cedar Wood and the Everett Public School system. Some responsibilities of a Cultural Connector are:

  • Allow your email and phone number to be given to other Cedar Wood families.
  • Provide support and answers to questions.
  • Refer families to school staff who can further address concerns and questions.

If you would like additional information about this program, contact our school counselor Amy Famelos-Villars at 425-385-7710 or email her afamelos@everettsd.org.

Cultural Night (Canceled Fall Event)

This years Cultural Night is cancelled due to the current health pandemic. Cedar Wood Cultural Night is an evening open house each fall where families are invited to create a booth displaying items from their cultural heritage. In addition to information tables, students are invited to do a short performance from their background culture which might include a dance, a song, or demonstration. We invite all families to participate and are always looking for different cultures around the United States as well.

Taste of the World (Online Spring Event)

Join us for an all-school eBook potluck including foods from all over the world! Families are encouraged to share a traditional dish for Cedar Wood’s first electronic cookbook. Looking for recipes from this event? Check back by spring to see a link to recipes for the Taste of the World event!
