Sue Stott, Sara Hertrampf, and John Finley took time out of their schedules to spend the entire day here at Central. We want to thank them for their support and dedication to our students.
We also want to thank the two 6th graders, Zoey and Aubry who made lunch for the committee in the Central Maker Space.

Art therapy with Karen Misseldine was an amazing way to start our Monday morning this week. Her calming presence and positive perspective was very refreshing in art fundamentals. The students broke out of their comfort zones a bit and did an exercise with her in the form of creating art through observation of a blank piece of paper; capturing and relating their feelings and emotions.

The Madagascar Hissing cockroaches are back.... Mrs. Bergan's 6th grade science class has been 'invade' by many hissing cockroaches. We got them out today to 'play' and observe. We have 5 babies, 1 'toddler' and over 20 adults if any parents want to come 'play' and observe.

Ask your elementary students about Coach Sloth! Coach Sloth is an Iowa native who played college and arena football, played a football player in 5 movies and is now a children's author.
Coach Sloth's presentation was about the writing process, the importance of reading and the value of hard work. His books and presentation also have an anti-bullying message.
If you have not already ordered any books by this amazing author, check your email or send your student to the elementary office for an order form!
Thank you, Coach Sloth, for your time and perspective!

Art fundamentals’ students took a ‘stab’ at woodcarving this week for “Workshop Wednesday”. We enjoyed having Bob Griffith and Rick Bartels here to help demonstrate the skilled craftsmanship needed to create a wooden 🦉. Both are very talented in this area and brought some of their own pieces along to showcase just that.

Mrs. Zittergruen's kindergarten class earned a special reward yesterday - blanket forts in the classroom!
The elementary classes can earn fun rewards by getting 5 class tickets. Some examples of Mrs. Zittergruen's class tickets include working hard for substitute teachers, being patient listeners, and getting right to work after lunch. Ask your students what kinds of things are earning their class a class ticket!

During today’s advisory period, students worked through a team building exercise, holding a fashion show in the auditorium. Using only newspapers and tape, the students had to work quickly, with very limited time to dress their models and send them onstage. From the noise coming from outside the auditorium, sounds like it was not only a successful event, but enjoyed by many!
And the winner is… MAXWELL! Congratulations!!!

🚨 ‘BIG’ talent alert!!
Senior, Lexi Loan spent majority of her first semester independent art class diligently working away on this larger-than-life, charcoal masterpiece. She took posed, reference photos of herself and compiled them together in a drawing to represent the “seven deadly sins”, in a self-portrait fashion. If you get the chance, stop by the display case at the school, to view first-hand, all the intricate details in this work of art. 😡🤤😴🤗😘🤨🤑
