Central High School

Announcements for Tuesday, October 9, 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 and have students get rid of all food from outside vendors. Ask students to spit out gum and remove all head gear. Students must use earbuds, not headphones.


Today’s big shout out goes to the Class Officers, Student Council Members, Ms. Marla Williams, Ms. Alli Eidson, and Ms. Ashley Hart for helping make our Community Pep Rally a huge success! Thanks to the cheerleaders for bringing Homecoming spirit to Lion Valley and thank you to Mr. Ruby and the Marching Pride for capping off the pep rally with the best show in the land! As the sign says, we are one community, one family, and one pride.


Attention FBLA students: The meeting scheduled for today in Dr. Vick’s room has been postponed until Tuesday, October 16. Meetings will be held before school and after school. Be there or be square!

Students, did you know that the yearbook staff is giving away one Chick-fil-A gift card for $50? That's right!

National Hispanic Heritage Month is currently being observed across the country. American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America can be explored by visiting our Media Center.
