Central Communique

A Newsletter for the Families of Central Elementary

December 3, 2014

Special Edition

The Central Communique is usually sent out on Fridays. Because of the Barnes and Noble event on December 5th, we are sending it out today.


On December 5, 2014 our PTO will be hosting a fundraiser at the Barnes and Noble in Plainfield. This is an all day event. From open to close, Central families simply show their voucher and a portion will go to the Central Elementary PTO no matter what is purchased. If you cannot drop by on the 5th, Barnes and Noble is also allowing Central families to purchase all weekend online using the voucher code. The Student Council will be working at this event from 5:00-8:00 pm. We hope to see you on December 5th at Barnes and Noble in Metropolis! To print off a voucher click HERE.

Recycling Bin Moved to Alley

Help us to spread the word! With parking space at a premium, we have moved the large recycling dumpster to the alley between the funeral home and our school. Please let your neighbors and friends know that we still have this recycling dumpster and that families are welcome to drop off recyclable goods.

2nd Grade Music Program

Our 2nd graders will host a music program for their families on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Central Elementary Gym. We hope to see you there.
