Central Families, People are parking in the pick up and drop off lane and it's getting to be a dangerous situation. No one should be parking in the pick up and drop off lane; it makes it hard to see the kids and adults and blocks traffic. Please be considerate and help us keep everyone safe. Thank you!

Mrs. Sunday received a Thrivent grant to incorporate art into the classroom. Mrs. Moore and the fourth grade teaching team planned lessons to utilize literacy, history, science and math skills. Students did lessons on the history of the color wheel and how to use the color wheel to create different colors and shades. Next, they discussed places in real life where people have to read and follow directions. Students then had to follow a series of written directions that incorporated many of the math vocabulary terms that they have been working on to sketch their gnomes onto the canvas. Finally, they painted their unique creations!
Central has a menu change for tomorrow (Thursday, February 11th): Choice A: waffles, cheesy omelet, potato wedges, strawberry cup Choice B: turkey and cheese chef salad w/roll, tomatoes and fruit choice
