4th Grade Ziti Supper is Back - With a Twist
The 4th Grade of 2021 is continuing center school's Ziti Supper Tradition but with a twist. While we can't fill the cafeteria with red checkered table cloths for family style meals, we will bring the family style meals to you, still served (delivered to your car) by our 4th graders for you and your family to enjoy at home. Center families and friends can enjoy these meal's by Chelmsford's own Bianco's Restaurant. This fundraiser supports the 4th grade end-of-year activities.
Place your order by May 16 at 9pm (we can't guarantee orders placed after this time). We can accept most major credit cards, Venmo, PayPal, and eChecks.
WHEN: May 20, 5:00-7:00pm
WHERE: Center School (Curbside Pick-up)
TICKET COST: $55 per family (feeds 4 people)
You are OZ-SOME!

Love Seeing Our School Decorated For the Seasons? It Could Be You!
The person who has been decorating our school this year will be handing over the reins to someone new next year. This is a great low key way to get involved with the PTO that has a big impact on everyone who comes to our school - teachers, staff, students, parents, and visitors! Email us if you're interested in this role next year - PTO.Center@gmail.com
We Still Want Your Box Tops - Just Scan and Earn!
Even though BoxTops are no longer found on your food items, don't forget you can now easily scan your receipts into the BoxTops app. We know it's a change and change is hard but once you get it set up the first time, it is easy peasy. Take a few photos of the receipt, it scans your purchases, identifies the Box Tops and applies them to Center School. Learn more.
