Central High School

Announcements for Friday, February 2, 2018

The mission of Central High School is to provide all students with educational opportunities through a challenging curriculum which meets the needs of a diverse school community.

Teachers -- Please check dress code, ask students to get rid of food and drinks from outside vendors and have students remove hoods and headgear while inside on campus. The use of Beat headphones is not allowed in school, earbuds only.

Students taking the ASVAB should report to 707 at this time.

February 2 is the celebration of Groundhog Day in the U.S. and Canada. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if the groundhog emerging from its burrow to see his shadow, six (6) more weeks of winter is predicted. This morning, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so get ready for more cold weather!


Today’s super big shout out goes to Ainsley Cowart and Morgan Collins for being selected for the North/South All-Star Golf Team. Morgan and Ainsley are the first Central High School students named to the All-Star Golf Team! Congratulations ladies!

Our second super big shout out goes to the following students who have been selected for state level interviews for the Governor’s Honors Program.
