A Leader in Me School - October 2020

A Message From Your Principal - Tiger Cubs Celebrate a Successfull Walk-a-Thon Fundraiser!

Hello Central Families,

Our Central PTO is pleased to announce that our Central Tiger Cubs had a very successful WALK-A-THON fundraiser this year. A grand total of $10,993.08 was raised by our students to support Central Elementary this fall!

THANK YOU to our Central community for your generosity and continued support of our Central team and the educational programming we offer at Central Elementary for our students.

We began our celebration by recognizing students who earned the most pledges for our school. The following prize winners will be awarded Amazon Gift Cards:

· First Place: Noah Hayes, Kindergarten, raised $1,060

· Second Place: Luke Nordstrom, 3rd grade, raised $601.25

· Third Place: Grey Wolfe, Kindergarten, raised $535.00

This year we celebrate the following students on their WALK-A-THON contributions:

· The Class that had the highest participation was Mrs. Haley Mishler’s 2nd grade class!

· The Class that raised the most money for Central Elementary was Mrs. Holly Susong’s Kindergarten class with donations of $1,906!

· Students who raised $50 or more will receive an ice cream treat when we return from Fall Break.

Mr. Salsman received over 20 pies in the face at recess this week to celebrate our fundraising efforts. For the third year in a row, our Central students synergized to meet the $10,000 goal we set for ourselves. Mrs. Outcalt will pucker up to kiss the Mystery Animal when we return from Fall Vacation!

Thanks again to our Central families for your financial gifts and amazing support as we persevere through a special school year.

Yours in education,

Rebecca Outcalt

Central Pride Champion - Blake Argotte

Nominated by Kim Lahrman, Diana Shirley and Keanna Stamm

Blake Argotte is a student full of Tiger PRIDE! Blake is one who comes to school prepared for whatever the day may bring. He is able to set aside any distractions and persist throughout the day, using every minute available to work toward his goals. He sets higher expectations for himself than what is set for the class. Blake listens to his classmates, digests the information and responds reflectively.

Blake considers other people’s wins as well as his own when helping his accountability partner stay focused on his goals. He is a huge help when tracking our classroom goals. He truly lives by this part of his mission statement: I will show grace and work hard to be nothing but a great leader and show that I have good talents, traits and skills.

Congratulations Blake!

Central Was Boo'd!

Mrs. Hall's class was Boo'd by another teacher, so we took the pumpkins we were given and made them into Jack-o-lanterns by adding painted faces. Each one is so unique! What a great team building experience!
