Our Central Story - 2/14/20
  • Mrs. Amy Zeuhls visited classrooms at CPS over several days sharing her experiences living and visiting Alaska and Antarctica.  Students were able to see and hear how people live and eat in Alaska, as well as, the citizens customs.  Students also learned about penguins that call Antarctica home.  
  • Our third graders at CPS had their Winter Concert Wednesday night.  Mrs. Cunningham led Mrs. Burke, Mrs. Fritz, Mrs. Turner, and Mrs. Walsh's classes at 5:30 and Mrs. Hillegonds, Mrs. Standish, Mrs. Kastl, and Mrs. Seckler's classes at 7:00.  It was a wonderful evening enjoyed by all!  #celebratecentral

  • Mrs. Uftring's sixth graders participated in Grammar Bootcamp this week. Students and Mrs. Uftring dressed up in camouflage to celebrate this exciting learning opportunity. Students worked with partners during the final challenge, and if they were successful, Mrs. Uftring had to do a push-up. In two days, Mrs. Uftring did 97 push-ups! A big thanks to Mrs. Uftring for providing exciting learning opportunities for our students!
