Message from the Principal

Dear Central Road Families,

Welcome Back to the 2019-20 school year! I can’t wait until our school is filled with all of the students this week! I look forward to seeing our current students and meeting our new students. My weekly communication will continue this school year. I will be sending my "Message from the Principal" on Wednesdays instead of Sundays to stay consistent with communication from buildings around the district.

A friendly reminder that Meet the Teacher is on Tuesday, August 13th from 1:30-2:30 p.m.. Immediately following our event, the PTA Luau will take place outside from 2:30-4:30 p.m. The picnic will be a wonderful time for friends and families to reunite after our summer break. The Kona Ice Truck will be there, selling snow cones for $3.00, $4.00 and $5.00. Families are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs for the event. Thank you to our incredible PTA for coordinating this social event.

During Meet the Teacher, students are encouraged to bring their school supplies. This way, parents can help bring the supplies to the classroom. If you ordered school supplies from the PTA, they will be waiting for your child on their desk in their classroom.

Assignment notebooks and calculators will be sold during Meet the Teacher. Assignment notebooks are $5.00.

Calculator prices are as follows:

Texas Instrument Calculators

TI-108 for Grades K-4 $4.00

TI-15 Math Explorer for Grades 5-8, $13.00

TI-34 Math Explorer Multi-view for Grades 7-8 $16.00

Assignment notebooks and calculators can also be purchased during the first week of school.

Please be sure to register online. Your class assignments and bus information can be found in Infinite Campus. Our office staff is happy to help with registration. Great news, our phone lines are also working! The office staff can be reached on our main line, 847-963-5100.

Let’s make it a fantastic year!

Message from Ms. Kathy- Central Road's Crossing Guard

WELCOME BACK!! It's time for another new school year. I sincerely hope you all had a wonderful summer full of fun and family. Now that we will be back, it's time to remember all the safety tips we have discussed over the last years. Safety never grows old and is always important. Before school starts, when you have a moment, please take a few minutes and talk to your kids about what it means to be safe and what they need to do. It will only take a few minutes and that would help all of us. I am looking forward to seeing everyone. You have all been missed. Together we can make this year as safe as ever.
