Spirit Wear Sales

Show your Central Pride with all new Spirit Wear! Tie-dye! Flannel pants! Beanies! Shop this link until Sept 30 to get your new gear with our new logo.

But, wait! This year, we also have rubber bracelets and keychains so your wrists and backpacks can get in on the action! These items will be sold after school on Wednesday, Sept. 15th, Thursday, Sept. 16th and on Friday, Sept. 17th at Family Fun Night. Bracelets are $1 or $5 for 6 and keychains are $5 (cash only). We'll also have t-shirt samples to check sizing so make sure to stop by the table at FFN.

All proceeds from the Spirit Wear sales go to sponsor PTO events, like the Family Fun Night!


No time to sell candy or wrapping paper? No problem! Make your contribution to the Central PTO in just one easy step with a donation to our No Hassle Fundraiser!

With the No Hassle Fundraiser, 100% of all donations go directly to support Central PTO events and programs for our students. Every dollar is appreciated!

Our goal is to raise $5000. Thanks to the generosity of our Central families, we’ve already raised over $3000!!

Make a donation online by September 17 - or in person at the September 17 Family Fun Night - and be entered into a raffle as our way of saying “thank you” for your support! Prizes include gift cards to our favorite local Riverside businesses, and a special delivery from the one and only Central mascot - Flash! The more you donate, the more chances you have to win!

100% of the donations will be used toward PTO-supported activities at Central, including:

  • Events like Family Fun Night & Cultural Heritage Night
  • Science Fair
  • Cultural Arts Classroom Program
