Central High School

Announcements for Wednesday, March 14, 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, get rid of food and drinks from outside vendors, have students spit out gum and remove hoods. Only earbuds are used on campus, not Beat headphones.

The Pride Leadership group will meet each Friday morning in the TLC room at 7:30 a.m. Please see Coach Smiley if you can not attend or have any questions.

SHOUT OUT

Today’s big shout out goes to the varsity baseball team for defeating Sandy Creek 12-2. Dylan High pitched 5 innings with 9 strikeouts. Dylan McKinley led the offense with 3 hits, followed by Andrew Allums and Carson Carroll with 2 hits each. Kaden Taylor, Reid Lovvorn, and Austin Helton added hits to the lineup as well. The Lions play at Chapel Hill on Thursday.

Our second big shout out goes to everyone who loves math in celebration of Pi Day! Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π. Pi Day is observed on 14 March since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day.
