The Central Scoop
June 9, 2022
Our foxes enjoyed celebrating each other during our all school assembly this morning. We sang songs, danced, and recognized students. During the assembly, we praised students who participated in a variety of school activities throughout the year including mileage club, reading rally, green team, spelling bee, student council, and more. We are proud of everyone's accomplishments!
And of course, we will miss all of our 4th grade students. It’s hard to believe that graduation day has arrived! We wanted to take a moment to congratulate all of you on having such wonderful children, and thank you so much for your support of their education during their years at Central School. It has been a joy to get to know your children. If your youngest child is leaving Central School, we hope that you will continue to stay in touch with us. Once you are a part of the Central School Family, you will always be a FOX! Graduating from elementary school is a momentous milestone that makes us realize how proud we are of all our graduates and their accomplishments and how hopeful we are for what they will achieve in the future.
To all of our returning families, we wish you a happy and healthy summer break. We hope you can have fun with friends and family. We look forward to welcoming you back to school in August!
With much gratitude and appreciation,
- Becky & Holly
