Twenty-one students participated in the National Geography Bee preliminary competition at Central on Monday, December 5. It was a stringent competition right down to the final answer...the three finalists were Willa Conlin, Luke Riddle and Dacen Wach. At the final question, Dacen was named the winner! Congratulations to all the participants, especially Dacen Wach, who will continue on to the State competition in January

Central students got to experience voting today. Issues on the ballot were: Best School Lunch, Best Central Activity, and should Central have a School Flag? A lot of excitement was generated about these "ballot issues" today! Will the school pizza, chicken nuggets or crispito be the favorite lunch? Will the Firehawk Dash, Halloween Parade or the Holiday Sing-A-Long be the winning favorite activity? Stay tuned to find out if students think that Central should have a school flag!
Halloween Costume Guidelines & Celebrations-Our school day will be on a normal schedule and students are not to wear costumes to school. (Exception: preschool only!) Please try to keep things simple. All costumes must meet regular dress code guidelines found in the student handbook. Students should be able to get into their costumes without assistance, since they are not to wear the costumes during the school day.
The Third and Fourth Grade Music Programs that were scheduled for tonight (Oct. 26) have been cancelled. Mrs. Law will reschedule the programs once she has had a chance to work with the SVVSD Master Calendar upon her return. All 3rd & 4th grade students will be notified once the replacement date has been set.
Central's annual Back to School Open House will be held on Thursday, August 11, from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. Students and parents are encouraged to tour the school, meet the teachers and staff and see why Central Elementary is STILL providing an excellent education to our children after 138 years! There will also be a fun social time for families to bring a picnic and reconnect with friends and neighbors in the playground area behind the school from 6:45 - 7:30 pm.
