7th Boys BBall
  • Mrs. Faulkner's first grade students at CPS have third grade book buddies they meet with each Friday. The students are loving it, and it is beneficial in developing a love of literacy and developing positive role models.  Proud to be a Trojan!
  • Mrs. Walsh's third grade class at CPS works on a weekly student newsletter.  The newsletter goes out on Fridays, and informs parents about what they're learning and current happenings in third grade from their perspective.
  • We are very excited about the addition of a resource to support families with Social Emotional Learning. With the addition of a new Social Emotional Learning benchmark tool, we are excited to announce a new Social Emotional Learning Parent Resources website. The website highlights articles, home activities, games, and resources families can use to help develop students’ Social Emotional skills at home. We will continue to update the website as the year progresses, but please feel free to check out the resources available now at http://bit.ly/Central51SELParentResources !
