News about PARCC Testing

Central School will administer new assessments created through the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).  Central third and fourth grade students will take paper-based assessments each day  from  March 9-13.  There are three English Language Arts assessments and two math assessments.  Testing times are one hour to one and a half hours per day. 

Fifth grade students will take five computer based assessments between March 9-19.  The fifth graders have three English Language Arts assessments and two math assessments to complete during this ten day period.  They will not have assessments all ten days.  Some groups will be assessed in the mornings, some in the afternoons, and some will have assessments in both the mornings and the afternoons.  Testing times range from one hour to one and a half hours per day. 

 You can help your child do his/her best on the tests by:

  • making sure that your child attends school and arrives on time (8:15);
  • making sure that your child gets a good night's sleep the night before testing;
  • providing breakfast on the mornings of testing.  You may want your child to participate in the school breakfast program.
  • reminding your child to do his/her best.

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.
