Connecting Parents, Students, Teachers

Central Gear!

2 days left of our CHEER fundraiser. Here is the link if any of you would like to support a cheerleader and buy some Central gear https://fancloth.shop/DDJRJ!

We appreciate you,

Coach Teter



Veterans Day is a big event at Central. Our students and staff are so thankful for our Veterans and their service to our country. We were able to express that appreciation with our band, signs, and letters from our students. Thank you all who came out to participate. Veterans day is special for our Veterans and our Students alike.

Basketball is underway- All Teams are undefeated- 1-0. Central Warriors are prepared for a great season- come out and watch when you have a chance.

The fall concert was a great success! Multiple students had parts and the choir would not be a choir without every student involved- what a great voice of leadership. Their song is harmony! Christmas Band and Choir Concerts are coming! See below for details!

Important Information and Dates

  • Picture Re-Takes are November 17th

JDRF Walk- From the JDRF Southern States Chapter Representative

Dear friends,

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful your students are. I am a mother of two and I would be so proud to call any and all of these students my own. We really could not have been successful in our walk without them. They were energetic, polite, conscientious and responsible. Kudos to all of you for shaping the lives of these fine young men and women. I am utterly and totally impressed!



Calendar of Events: A few things to remember...

We are constantly updating and pushing out information through the NJHS Google Classroom. Please ensure that your student is receiving those notifications and emails. If you are needing to enroll as a guardian- please email Mrs. Cameron to begin receiving emails. Thank you!
