A Note from the Principal:
Hello Central Families!
What a bizarre beginning to 2024! Such a brief but intense snowy season! And now here we are, feeling thrust into (according to the groundhog anyway) an early spring. I can't believe I can already see snowdrops and daffodils trying to peek up in my yard! What a month! Even with talk of an early spring, though, please remind your students to bring a coat or jacket to school every day. As long as the temperature outside remains below 50 degrees we require students to wear a coat or jacket during recess (even when the sun is out). Your help with this reminder would be greatly appreciated.
I am so excited about our music concerts tomorrow and Tuesday nights at the KH Performing Arts Center. More information about your concert time(s) is included below.
I invite you to join us this month as we Paint Kenowa Green. Please read the letter below from Nurse Sikkema for more information and conversation about mental health.
Please reach out if there is anything I can help you with.Cherie Horner, Principal

A Note from the Principal:
Dear Central Families,
Our entire staff says "thank you!" for the full week of delicious treats that you provided. Savory snacks, cocoa bar, Sandy's donuts, Chick-fil-A lunch and gift cards. Our PTO is incredible and we are truly grateful!
I hope you have a very restful holiday break. Take time to make memories. Hold your child(ren) close. You'll never regret attentive time spent with your kid(s).

Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers.
