Art Show and Book Fair

The annual Art Show and Scholastic Book Fair will be held on Friday, April 10th, from 4:30 to 7:00 PM. Please join us for a fun evening "Under the Sea". You can view your child's artwork, purchase books from the Scholastic Bpook Fair and also purchase tickets for a raffle. Games, activities, face painting and a cake/cookie walk will be available for the kids. PTO will be selling hot dogs, goldfish crackers, nachos, popcorn, soda, cotton candy and Culver's frozen custard.

Volunteer requests have been sent home with the students. Please complete these and send them back in with the shift you would be willing to work. It takes numerous volunteers to make this function run smoothly so our students can enjoy a fun evening.

This is a great opportunity to meet other parents and have a family-friendly fun evening!

Special Visitors

 Mrs. Wendling's 3rd Grade Class were visited by some soft and cuddly visitors.  The three week old, furry visitors are a 4H project for Kateleigh Z., who is a member of the Happy Hoppers 4H club.  She plans to exhibit at least one of the rabbits at the  Effingham County Fair.






Hoops For Hearts

Students raised $9,093 for the 14th Annual Hoops for Heart event. Pictured are some of the students who raised at least $75. All the proceeds went to the American Heart Association to help fight heart disease and strokes.  The students in the picture raised at least $50 for the American Heart Association's Hoops for Heart.

Sock Hop

The Third Quarter reward party, a sock hop, was held recently at Central School.  Students danced to some favorite songs and played limbo. 









Library Donation

The family of Russ Wieneke, a Central Teacher who passed away in 2002, made a monetary donation to Central's Library in honor of Mr. Wieneke's 54th birthday.  Mr. Wieneke loved teaching and working with students.  Many former students and colleagues remember his old fashion candy dispensing machine, owl pellets, marble mazes, and other science projects that engaged his students.  Central School thanks the Wieneke family for the donation which was used to purchase new books for the library.
