Mr. Clarke’s "Tournament of Historical Significance" project looked a little different this year, but it was still a fun and engaging learning opportunity for our 7th Grade Social Studies students! Typically, 7th graders choose their top-32 historical figures in U.S. History, each student then picks one historical figure, and then they go through a March Madness-styled tournament in which students debate against one another with the winner moving on from round to round. Prior to the closure, students established their top-32 but were unable to do the debate-formatted tournament. The tournament still took place, though, through student-led research and a vote on who they thought was most historically significant in each matchup. Check out the final brackets with the winners!

Be a part of the studio audience of Real Talk with Fairytale Legends, where the seven dwarves tell the story of Snow White as the Fairytale Players bring it to life. Each dwarf takes a turn telling part of Snow White’s famous story in his or her own unique voice. At any given moment, the story can be anything — romance, comedy, home improvement show, suspense, Western, epic poetry, mystery, cooking show, stand-up routine, or blockbuster action movie! There’s even a “Miss Fairest of Them All” beauty pageant! It all culminates in a mad-dash ending of fast-changing genres that sets the record straight on Snow White’s happily-ever-after.

Please see the following updates from Mrs. Youngman on the 2019 Salvation Army Project and WHIP (Washington Helps It’s People). A big thanks to Mrs. Youngman for her time and commitment to these two projects! Updates: In the month of December, Central adopted eighteen families in need through the Salvation Army. All grade levels participated to help these families. The following list indicates how each grade level contributed: • Kindergarten – toothbrushes and toothpaste • 1st grade - kitchen gadgets (can openers, pot holders, spatulas, serving spoons, etc…) • 2nd grade - bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, dish clothes, etc… • 3rd grade – laundry soap/softener • 4th grade – Cleaning supplies (bath, kitchen, etc…) • 5th grade – toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap, bath gel, lotions, etc…) • 6th, 7th, and 8th grades – gifts for the children and parents to unwrap on Christmas morning. This project has become a tradition at CIS and CPS and as always Central students/families showed their generosity by going above and beyond what was expected. In addition to the gifts and household goods, we supplied a $40 Kroger gift card to each family to help provide Christmas dinner. The Salvation Army is always so impressed with our school and all of the families are extremely thankful for our generosity! Thank you to all of the students and families that made this project a success! The students had a great time and hopefully learned that giving can feel better than receiving. Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to update you on the success of our WHIP (Washington Helps Its People) program. Central has collected 1,407 items for WHIP. WHIP asked to share the following with all of Central families: We are open twice a month serving an average of 170 families each time. WHIP only serves people within the 61571 zip code. The food donated by Central families allows WHIP to use funds to purchase ground beef, cheese, fruit, and eggs. WHIP received fresh produce in the summer from the food pantry garden and local gardeners. WHIP is very thankful for the generous support of District 51. As always, thank you for your continued support! Joelle Youngman

On Friday, October 25th, the students in Knit for a Cause visited 5 Miles East, an alpaca farm near Bloomington. While there, they got to pet the alpacas, learn about the process of shearing an animal and making it into yarn, as well as participating in crafts! They felted alpaca and sheep fiber to make beads for earrings and keychains. They also stuffed grapevine balls with alpaca fiber; these balls will hang from the trees in spring for birds to use the fiber in their nest! It might have been chilly, but it was smiles all around as they soaked up the information and fun!

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 1¢ 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
