Veterans Day Parade

Central loved being able to honor local Veterans during the Veterans Day Parade. Thank you to all of the Veterans that got out in the rainy weather to come drive in our parade, and thank you for serving our Country!

Thank-You Action Team - Spreading Holiday Cheer!

The Student Lighthouse: Thank-You Action Team has been hard at work showing appreciation to those who help our student body. Earlier this fall we wrote thank you notes to the MANY donors who make our Fall Festival such a great success. We also want to share with our community, so we decided to write cards and color Thanksgiving pictures for our local nursing home residents. We hope to spread some holiday cheer!

First Grade Learning About Author's Purpose

First graders learned about Author’s Purpose with the acronym PIE (persuade, inform, entertain). They wrote to persuade their readers whether or not we should eat turkeys on Thanksgiving. Then they learned about turkeys and wrote a nonfiction article and an entertaining story about a turkey they drew. After all that writing, they tried some different Thanksgiving pies, and then worked to persuade their readers to try their favorite kind of pie!

LCSC Employee Pride Champion - Jada Folden

Jada comes to Central everyday prepared and excited to work with students. She has established positive and caring relationships with students and staff, and is always willing to step in and help where needed. Jada is currently in school to become an educator and she utilizes the best practices she is learning in school with ALL students she works with. When Jada is asked to fill in and disrupt her schedule last minute, she does so with enthusiasm. She collaborates with teachers and administration to ensure her decisions are always student centered. We are lucky and honored to have Jada at Central and look forward to watching her continue to grow in her educational career. Congratulations Jada!

News from Mrs. Bland

Dear Parents of Third and Fifth Grade Students,

Indiana State law requires that certain grades have vision screenings. Your school clinic will begin acuity screenings in December. Please watch for your student’s results to come home in their backpack. If a student does not pass any portion of the screening, we will contact you with a written referral form.


If you do not want your child screened, please contact Holly Bland in the clinic.
