#ClaytonCountyBEST students in partnership with Moyna Materials and school employee Bob Wiedner emptied the preschool sandbox in preparation for new sand that will arrive next week. Thank you to Mr. Wiedner for his time and Moyna Materials for donating the sand. Also thank you to Peter and Kristi McGreal for taking the old sand and donating the use of a dump trailer to make the process easier.

MUSIC UPDATE: As was announced at the Spring Concert and today’s assembly, the HS Chorus found out last week that there was a discrepancy in one of the scores for the Large Group Music Festival. Central respectfully contacted the IHSMA who checked in on this and found out there was a mistake and corrected it. This ended up earning the Central HS Chorus an overall Division 1 Superior Rating! This is a major accomplishment as Superior scores are difficult to receive. Congratulations HS Chorus on this incredible accomplishment!

Congratulations to our 3-6 Grade General Music students on a wonderful music concert last night! They performed a variety of music both singing and playing. They were able to feature Central's new tubano drums, mallet instruments, and ukeleles that they will get to use for many years. We are excited to see where they take the program in the future. Keep making music Warriors!
