High Five Friday!

Thank you to Lt. Ahern and Sgt.Hawkins for welcoming our students Friday morning. What a fun way to end the week.
Dear Center Community,

Our kindergarten information night is this Wednesday at 6:30. Please join us if you have an incoming K student, and tell your friends.

Principal Appreciation

Notes from the Librarian

Friday, Allister in KMc was the librarian of the day! He was very busy checking in and out books, organizing the books on the rack, finding books for students and we brainstormed and worked on a new bulletin board. Thank you, Allister! Maybe you will be the librarian at Center School one day. 🙂

Family Sing Along info

Hello Center Community,

On Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30 PM, I will hold a family sing-along night in the Center School Gym. My goal is for the Center Community to come together to make music.

Students will sing songs they learned in Music Class, I will teach the song to everyone, and then we will all sing it together. All kindergarten through fourth-grade students and their families are invited. Feel free to bring a blanket to sit on!

I hope to see you from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM on May 10th in the Center School Gym.

Please complete this form if you plan on attending:

I look forward to making music with all of you!
