Spirit Wear Sales

Show your Central Pride with all new Spirit Wear! Tie-dye! Flannel pants! Beanies! Shop this link until September 30th to get your new gear with our new logo.

But, wait! This year, we also have rubber bracelets and keychains so your wrists and backpacks can get in on the action! Bracelets are $1 or $5 for 6 and keychains are $5 (cash only). We also have t-shirt samples to check sizing. Spirit Wear Table will be open THIS Tuesday after school by the front of Central.

All proceeds from the spirit wear items go to sponsor PTO events, like the Family Fun Night!

We Love Our Volunteers! Thank You!

The PTO would like to thank the Fall parent volunteers who have invested their time and efforts into creating wonderful memories for Central students and families: Kindergarten Picnic Chairs Beth Brower, Ashley Prosser and Joanne Schiemann; No Hassle Fund Chair Amy Dickerson and Spirit Wear Chairs Beth Brower and Vika Bursua. And despite the sudden storm, our Family Fun Night Chairs Amy Carnahan and Sundae Kaciuba did an amazing job bringing our community together!

Of course, these events would not be possible without the help of the countless parent and teacher volunteers who donated their time to hand out popsicles, man the various carnival games, coordinate our dessert vendors and much more. Last, but certainly not least, to the top secret volunteers who wear that special Flash costume -- thank you! These events are successful because so many people pitched in -- we are immensely grateful for your participation.
