A Note from the Principal

Hello Central Families,


It's hard to believe we are approaching our first intersession. I am so proud of the wonderful work that is happening in the classrooms, both virtual and face-to-face! Thank you for sending us your best...We love our Central students and families!


Thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter that is filled with important information about upcoming events including Halloween, Intersession, Book Fair, PTO and the Positivity Project.


Respectfully,


Mrs. Kuzinski, Proud Principal

Halloween News

We will be celebrating Halloween with our students on Friday, October 23rd. Students should plan to wear their costumes to school. We will be planning activities throughout the day and students will celebrate with their classmates. Information on classroom parties will come directly from the teacher.


In consideration of student safety, enjoyment, and school policy, some reminders regarding costumes follow:

  • Toy weapons of any kind are not allowed
  • Costumes depicting violence, blood, or scary creatures are not school appropriate
  • Students will still need to wear their face masks


Halloween Parade

Central families are welcome to attend the costume parade, weather permitting. If the weather is unfavorable, the parade will be cancelled. Spectators will line up along the sidewalk peninsula between the bus loop and parking lot. We kindly ask that everyone wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.

  • 1st Grade Parade: 9:00 AM
  • 2nd Grade Parade: 9:30 AM
  • 3rd Grade Parade: 10:00 AM
  • 4th Grade Parade: 10:40 AM

Parades will last approximately 10 minutes, so be sure to be on time!


Virtual Students: Send us your Halloween costume pictures so we can post them on our PTO Facebook page or in our next Central Shines newsletter!

Positivity Project (P2)

Central is a partner school, which means all of our families get free access to awesome resources that reinforce the character traits and teaching we are doing at school. There is a character card that explains the character trait, a grade-appropriate video to show the character trait in action and some questions that are great conversation starters at home.

POSITIVE PICS

Positive Referrals

These students received Positive Referrals to the office for showing great character and following the Cardinal Code. Awesome!
