Welcome to Cedar View Elementary!Top of Page

This is my first year as principal for the Cedar Springs Public Schools and I am so glad to be here!  For the past 22 years I have served as teacher, district coordinator, assistant principal and principal.  I started out in an elementary school, and went on to work in the high school and then middle school.   I am so glad to be back working with elementary children with an amazing staff and supportive community!  
Mr. Franz and I raised two beautiful daughters, who are now off living their lives raising our beautiful grandchildren.  We currently reside with our beloved Bouvier, Rufus, and spend much of our free time north at our lake house where we enjoy spending time with family, boating and just enjoying lake life. 
Throughout my career my priority has always been to do the very best for children.   I am dedicated to helping children enjoy their education, while helping them become the best people they can be.  It is my firm belief this can only happen when parents and staff work together to create a strong school family where each member feels valued, supported and welcome.  As your principal it is important to me that everyone who enters Cedar View Elementary is excited and happy to be here!  I look forward to meeting and building meaningful relationships with all students, staff, parents and families of Cedar Springs to help make Cedar View the place every child is successful and everyone wants to be!
I truly welcome and value your input and support.  I encourage you to call, stop by, or email should you ever have a comment, question, or concern to share.  My door is always open to you.   
I look forward to an amazing school year together!
Warmest Regards,
Carol J. Franz
