Due to higher than expected interest (44 parties) in our Central Elementary Playground, the District has decided the fairest way to award the playground is through a sealed bid process. Residents of Central Community School District and Non-Profits of Clayton County will have until 1:00 P.M. on June 25th to submit a bid. All bids will assume the cost of completely removing all existing equipment between the dates of July 10 - July 25. The winning bid will need to sign a release of liability and provide proof of insurance. Any questions can be directed to the District Office at 563-245-1751.

Congratulations Brayden & Jaydin! The May male student-athlete of the month is recognized for his consistently strong work ethic. This young man works hard before, during, and after the season to improve his skills and become better at what he does. He is described as being committed to excellence and leads by example. His involvement in numerous other athletic, fine arts, and student leadership activities has helped prepare him for success in track & field. The May Male Student-Athlete of the Month is Brayden Finley. The May female student-athlete of the month is described as someone who has persevered through adversity. Instead of making excuses and allowing setbacks to define her, she has made success possible. She worked hard last summer, in Cross Country, throughout the winter, and all of that time and effort paid off with an appearance at the State Track & Field Meet. Her coaches speak about her attention to the five domains of athleticism that our strength & conditioning program works to improve. Her PR testing results have shown how her choices have raised the ceiling on what she is capable of. Many have described her as humble and respectful, while noting her belief in the process combined with a great attitude and work ethic have brought her success. Her coach says, “truly enjoying what she is doing might be the biggest key to her success.” The May Female Student-Athlete of the Month is Jaydin Dettman.
Central staff members enjoyed one last picnic and spreading some kindness at Founders Park. Have a great summer!
