1. On Wednesday, March 20th, Central Primary School students and staff attended an assembly about Habit 5, Seek first to understand, then to be understood. During the assembly, students reviewed Habit 5 and discussed its importance. Then, teachers led students in building a monster who shows that he is ready to listen. The assembly was a great way for students to review this important habit for Leader in Me.

2. 2nd grade students enjoyed donuts Wednesday, March 20th, provided by the Trojan Gala. Second grade earned donuts because their grade level basket was a top earner at the Trojan Gala. Congratulations 2nd grade!

3. The CIS Drama Club performed Willy Wonka Jr. for two packed houses on March 15 and 16.  Outstanding job Mrs. Woolard, Mrs. Randolph, Mrs. Davidshofer, Mrs. J. Uftring and the Cast for great performances!

4. Disability Awareness on National Down Syndrome Day!  Crazy socks, yellow shirts and a day of activities to help students understand what students with disabilities experience on a daily basis. Thank you Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Fogle for organizing a great day of developing empathy and compassion.

5. Did you know 54 counties in Illinois have already passed the 1% Sales Tax for schools? 5 out of 6 neighboring counties have passed it. The 1ยข Tazewell County School Facility Sales Tax proposal asks voters to approve a countywide, one-cent sales tax. The revenue from this sales tax would go towards funding school facility improvements across the county and provide an opportunity for school districts to reduce the reliance on local property tax. How will funds from the sales tax be used for Washington Schools? Funds from this sales tax can be used only for maintaining, renovating and upgrading existing school facilities, for new construction and for abatement of property taxes.   PLEASE VOTE: April 2, 2019
