The Hilltop Food Pantry Thanks You!

Student Council sponsored a project this December to collect food for a local food pantry. Hilltop was the fortunate recipient. We are thrilled to report over 700 items were donated by the students and staff of Central Elementary. So many of those in need will benefit from your kindness! A big thanks goes to our Student Council who did an fantastic job reminding everyone of our goal and announcing our progress daily! To reward students for making our goal we had a 1 Minute Dance Party to the song of Happy this morning over the announcements!

Here We Come a Caroling

The students had a wonderful time today caroling downtown! We made several stops and brightened up the day for many spectators! If you came out to see us, we hope you enjoyed the show!

Have You Paid Your Book Rental???

Book rental balances are due to the school office by January 15, 2015. Any monies not turned in by that date will be turned over to the Administration office for collection.

A Look Back


That sums up the weather this time of year. Temperatures are dropping and before we know it, many white flakes will be falling from the sky. Please remember to dress your child for the frigid weather! Think of it this way, if you had to stand outside for thirty minutes in the same clothes your child is wearing to school, would you be warm enough?

It’s also a good idea to put an extra pair of socks and gloves in their backpacks in a Ziploc baggie. That way if their socks or gloves get soaked on the way to school or at recess, they can change and be comfortable during class or at recess later in the day. Also, please label all of their winter clothing. It makes things much easier at recess and dismissal. When items are labeled, the infamous “Hey, that’s mine”, can be easily remedied.

School Delay Information

SCHOOL-School normally starts at 8:45 a.m. When there is a delay, schools starts two hours later at 10:45 a.m. Students do NOT stay two hours later when there is a delay. If a delay occurs on a Wednesday, we go with a normal schedule and start at 10:45.

BUSES-Your child’s bus will come two hours after it would normally come. Example: Your child’s bus comes at 8:10 a.m. When there is a two hour delay, it would come at 10:10 a.m. If a delay occurs on a Wednesday, we go with a normal schedule so it would still come at 10:10 a.m.

WALKERS & CAR RIDERS: If your child is a walker, he or she should walk to school two hours later than they normally would. If you drive your child to school, just leave exactly two hours later than you would normally leave. When there is a delay, supervision is provided on the school porch for walkers and riders starting at 10:20 a.m.

LUNCH-Lunch is served at the normal time. The lovely lunch ladies estimate what they need and start making it before your child even arrives! Gosh, they’re good!

ACTIVITIES-All BEFORE school activities are CANCELLED for that day when there is a delay. After school activities will take place as usual.
