Message from the Principal

Dear Central Road Families,

As we welcome spring and warmer temperatures, I want to take the opportunity to remind you of some elements related to the dress code that are outlined in the Student Handbook. Shorts should be at least as long as a student's fingertips when arms are hanging at their side. We should not see any bare midriffs (no part of a student's stomach should be visible). No undergarments should be showing, and students should not be wearing tops that have spaghetti straps unless there is a full tee-shirt underneath. We want to minimize distractions to our learning environment for the benefit of our students. Thank you for your support in this.

Below you will see photographs of our band and orchestra directors supporting onsite practice for students with their instruments. Mr. Panagakis gives lessons and orchestra rehearsals weekly for participating fifth and sixth graders. Mr. Wilke does the same for our band students. In the coming days, fourth grade students will be treated to an introduction to instruments to consider taking up to learn and practice. This truly enhances their fifth and sixth grade experience and can be a springboard for a richer life experience. Information will be going home shortly about our orchestra and band programs.

Please be sure to forward to the nurse's office any dental and vision forms that you have for your students. Receiving them now ensures that they are appropriately filed and in place.

The calendar is filling up with end of the year activities! Please remember that we have a short week this week, as Friday, April 19, there is no school.
