  • Mr. Cox, CPS Principal, was a guest reader in Mrs. Couri's classroom.  A student brought in a book to share that he was very excited about.  It was a special treat for both Mr. Cox and Mrs. Couri's students.    

  • This year, Central welcomed Mrs. Carolyn Cracaft as our new Early Childhood Education classroom teacher.  Mrs. Cracraft considers sensory needs and gross motor skills while planning daily activities.  She uses lots of tools to make learning fun and interactive.  We are glad to have her as part of our staff. #celebratecentral51
