Myself, as well as the rest of the 6th grade team would just like to THANK you for allowing us to work with you wonderful students each and every day. It has been a true joy and pleasure, and we wish them well as they move on to 7th grade.

A Note from Mrs. Anderson

Hey guys!!


I just wanted to write a quick note letting you know how much I have appreciated spending this year with your kiddos! This has been my favorite year by far and I am so sad to not be continuing on with them to 7th grade. I wanted to let you all know that my family will be re-locating to Tulsa so your kids will have a new counselor next year. I am so thankful for the time I have had with this awesome group of kids, and I can't wait to hear what they accomplish over their next two years at Central. I'm so thankful that you have entrusted this sweet group of students to me! I will miss you all so much! Let me know if your ever in Tulsa :)


With love,

Chasidy Anderson

BrAziLiaN CaRnIvAl STEM Activity

The 6th grade teachers are currently planning a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activity for the entire 6th grade on May 17, 18 and 19.
