AR Reading 3rd Quarter Celebration - Thanks to the Boys & Girls Club

Kids Caring for the Community

Big image
Central Elementary received a $750.00 donation from the Carpenter's Union due to our participation in this program. This year we have submitted entries for the thank you letters we sent those that service in our community, the local food pantry food drive and the cookies, coffee, and cards we sent to military troops. It is awesome to see Central students getting involved in these projects! Pictured above is our Student Council that helps organize and make these projects successful.
