1. Morgan Frans joined the CPS café staff this winter. In addition to her talents in the kitchen preparing meals each day for our K-3 students, she is a talented artist. Morgan was a 2013 graduate of Washington High School and excelled in art during her high school years. She is now bringing her artistic skills to the café as she draws a cartoon each day to match the actual lunch menu. The students love her art work and are always excited to see her art work when they receive their hot lunch at CPS.
2. Miss Breanna Turner, third-grade teacher, and Mrs. Bonnie Martin, special education teacher, were awarded the Golden Apple award during the April faculty meeting at Central Primary School. Miss Turner was recognized by Mr. Deatherage for the great job she has done in her first year of teaching, and Mrs. Martin was recognized by Mrs. Dez Brown for the assistance she has provided this year. Congratulations to Miss Turner and Mrs. Martin!
3. Mrs. Jessica Uftring and the Student Council organized their "No Place Like Home" Spirit Week to benefit the Colton Underwood Foundation to help fight Cystic Fibrosis. There were dress up days and daily fundraising activities and the week ended with an inspirational speaker for the students.
4. Mrs. Houle, Mrs. Randolph and the CIS Band and Choir students represented CIS well in their performances at the Township Band and Choir Festivals! The students sounded great and demonstrated the strong music programs at CIS. Great Job!
5. We would like to recognize three outgoing Board of Education members for their voluntary service and dedication to Central School District. Mrs. Saundi Pugh served two years as a member and the last four years as President. Mr. Brian Beebe served four years and Mr. Bryan Cherry served two years. Under their leadership Central passed a building referendum to help with increasing enrollment, expanded the curriculum by adding Spanish, STEM, Art and Technology, added a full-time counselor, social worker, and school psychologist to meet the social emotional needs of our students and so many other items. We commend these individuals for their vision and guidance and thank them for serving as advisers, decision makers, problems solvers and advocates for the students, staff and Central community.
