Any parents/guardians that are interested in volunteering this year at Central must have a valid Criminal Record Check (CRC).  A document has been attached that helps outline how you can get your CRC online.

As you may be aware there has been some road construction going on around Ecole Central lately. We have been informed that the back parking lot will not be available on the first day of school.

We appreciate your support and patience with this as we prepare to make Tuesday a safe and positive experience for all of our students and families.

We also wanted to remind the school community that on Tuesday September 5th 2017 students will be dismissed at 10:50am. The first day for our Kindergarten students will be on Wednesday September 13th 2017 and will be a full day.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – TRACK AND FIELD – CENTRAL SCHOOL CLOSURE JUNE 9TH 2017

May1
We just wanted to share some information about changes made to the Elementary Sports Schedule this year and how it effects us here at Central. Due to circumstances at the schools in line to host the Elementary Track Meet this year we have been bumped up as host school. This means that Central staff and community will be directly involved that day at the track meet and thus Central school will be closed on Friday June 9th 2017. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you are interested in volunteering on that day. As this is a big event that is rotated around the district each year we would value any time or support that could be offered to help make this event run as smoothly as possible.
Once again, as Central is hosting the track meet this year. This means that Central will be NOT in session on Friday June 9th 2017 (no school for non track and field athletes).

Central Gym Grand Re-opening

February16

On Feb. 15th the students and staff celebrated the re-opening of our gym and renovations that were done over the past few months. The celebration started with the presentation of an incredible cake created by Nicole from Nicole Sweet Temptations which had taken home 1st prize for sculpture and 1st prize people choice at last weekend’s “High on Ice” festival. The cake was donated by Amber Blair and Dave Smith for all students to enjoy in the learning commons following the celebration.

The celebration in the gym also included Mme Elena’s class sharing a couple songs in a school sing along. We then had a 15 minute school wide Zumba session and concluded with our annual student –  teacher basketball game. Fun was had by all and we are so excited to be once again using this great space.
