Announcements for Tuesday, September 11, 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.

Good morning. As we stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and moment of silence, let us remember the events that occurred 17 years ago today on September 11, 2001.
