The Road to Central Challenge has Begun
Wednesday, September 14 marked the start of the 2016-2017 Road to Central Challenge as students played a soccer tournament at Kruse elementary school.
The Road to Central Challenge is an intramural competition between the four district elementary schools. The challenge is composed of six different athletic competitions including soccer, volleyball, basketball, bowling, softball, and track.
This challenge gives 5th grade students a chance to represent their school and compete in activities which will prepare them to play sports at Central Middle School. It also introduces students who may some day become friends.
All teams played well in this year's soccer competition, but Fulton came out on top going undefeated in the challenge. The next event will be volleyball at Fulton on November 9.
Opening Day Keynote Presentation
Superintendent Dr. Jeff Stawick addressed new and returning teachers and staff at the District 146 Staff Opening Day. The presentation was followed by two-days of staff development sessions.
Central's 7th Graders Attend the BHSD 228 STEM Competition
Forty of our seventh grade students had the opportunity to attend the BHSD 228 STEM Competition. They were able to observe high school students participating in various competitions such as rocket launching, bridge testing, and egg bungee drops. The seventh graders participated in their own STEM competition when they received the task of designing a straw rocket that could travel the greatest distance. By applying their physics knowledge through multiple testing opportunities, our students launched their rockets! The pairs of students who designed the most effective rockets received an award and recognition at the conference!
The Voice's Mark Hood visits Fulton's music class
Mrs. Kaiser and Ms. Pasikís 5th grade classes are huge fans of Mark Hood from The Voice. In Mr. Glaseís music class, the students put together a video message asking Mark Hood to visit Fulton school. Mark Hood responded and set up a time with Mr. Glase for a surprise visit to Fulton school. The 5th grade class was shocked and excited to meet a star! Mr. Hood made a lasting impression on the students and inspired them to live out their dreams.
