Morning Announcements

Central High School

Announcements for Friday, October 22, 2021

 

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, have students toss all food and drinks from outside vendors, spit out gum and remove all headgear. Put cell phones away as you enter class. Students may NOT wear earbuds, headphones, or hats in school.

 

Today’s Bullying Prevention Week quote is from Yasmin Mogahed, “Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you hurt. You fall. But you keep going.”

 

SHOUT OUT ~

Today’s big shout out goes to the Central High School Volleyball Team for beating New Hampstead in the first round of state playoffs Wednesday night. The ladies are now in the Sweet 16! Come out Saturday and support our Lions as they compete for the Elite 8 against Northwest Whitfield! 

 

Our second shout out goes to Jesus Garcia for being caught in a random act of kindness. Jesus assisted a student in a medical emergency in class. Thanks for jumping in to save the day! Please stop by the Media Center for your free tee shirt and picture.

 

Our final shout out of the day goes to our very own Lee Burson! Congratulations on being named runner up Carroll County Teacher of the Year.
