Weekly C.U.B.

Central Update Bulletin - Issue 16


Please plan on having all grades finalized by Friday (if I were you I would try to get them done by Thursday afternoon ;))

Don't forget to input Reading Levels!

Science Fair

We are so lucky to have an amazing Science Fair team who have been working diligently to help our students get ready for Science Fair. It has been great to see Science Fair brought back to the Central Students. Students may begin placing projects out on the tables in the hall starting on Monday. We will have district folks here judging the projects and hope to have results by Thursday. Big shout out to Mrs. Turner for your help organizing this and leading the charge.

Early Release Schedule

On our early release days we will be following the schedule found here: https://goo.gl/Zt2rDB . Please plan on all teachers being on Lunch Duty these two days in the cafeteria. Teachers will take their lunch after students have been dismissed. The cafeteria will be providing sack lunches on both these days.
