Come to the library to check out a stack of books to keep you busy during your break! Also, don't forget to return or renew overdue items before leaving.

Attention Seniors: Please make sure you check out the Class of 2020 google classroom updates. Miss Lohman has updated some scholarship deadline dates that were due over the break and has also uploaded all of the actual applications and posted them in the Classwork section.

Due to school being closed, deadline for Krispy Kreme donuts will be today. Please leave an address/contact number on the order form for further communications. Any questions, contact Coach Lobb at 618.792.5356.

Varsity Baseball practice after school is cancelled. Any questions please see Coach Crask. Future information will be sent out through REMIND.


Attention Sophomores: If you signed up to take Algebra II or Honors American History please make sure you check your email pertaining to the upcoming KC dual credit placement testing dates. There is also a step that must be completed online before testing can take place. See Miss Lohman if you have any questions.

Got Socks?! I bet you have lots! But did you know that not everyone does? Did you know that socks are the #1 item requested by homeless shelters? The Central High School Service Club has decided to take on the project of collecting socks to donate to homeless shelters in the St. Louis area. Please help this valuable cause by donating new socks to our sock drive. Socks will be collected in each 2nd hour class, and the class with the most socks collected will win donuts! The sock collection will begin Wednesday, March 11 and run through next Friday, March 20.

Attention Seniors: Make sure you complete the Senior Profile & Senior Superlatives assignment that has been posted in the Class of 2020 Google classroom. Due date is April 3rd. If you have any questions or technical issues, please see Mrs. Hogg.

Central High School now has an instagram account. To follow our school, you can search for Centralcougarsdist71 and look for the Cougar Head Logo.

Saint Louis University's Doisy College of Health Sciences Summer Scholars Health Care Exploration Camp is designed to give high school students who are going to be sophomores and juniors who are interested in a future in health care an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the academic programs offered at the college.

Students interested in the camp must apply by March 31, 2020. Here is the link to the webpage to apply: https://www.slu.edu/doisy/clinics-and-community/dchs-summer-scholars.php

Central HOSA will be hosting its final blood drive on Thursday, March 12th. If you would like to donate, notify a HOSA member or Mrs. Boruff at any time. HOSA members will be available during lunch this week for sign-ups as well. Thanks to all who attempt to donate.

Attention Seniors who are attending KC next year: KC will be here on April 2nd to register students for the summer and fall semesters. Please refer to the post in the google classroom on steps required to be eligible to sign up.

Attention Seniors: The March Scholarship list has been posted. It is also posted on the school website under Academics/Scholarship News.

The planning for Prom 2020 is underway! Prom will be held on Saturday, May 2nd from 8:00-11:00. The Prom theme this year is Arabian Nights. All juniors are encouraged to join the Prom 2020 Google Classroom with the code 2c2oina. Information regarding ticket prices, etc. will be available in April, but anyone with questions about Prom can contact Mrs. Shanafelt.

Attention Students: Due to concerns with safety and mobility, if you typically wait in the locker areas before school and during lunches, you are now expected to be seated with backs up against the lockers. Again, no one will be allowed to stand in these areas before school or during lunches. This will allow better access for everyone and provide an overall safer environment. Thank you for your immediate attention to this change in procedure.

Any junior or senior who would like to meet with any of the college representatives listed below needs to sign up in Miss Lohman's office. Bring your agenda to get a pass.

April 1st- University of Illinois Springfield (8:30)

The Central Cougars Softball team is looking for an individual that would be interested in keeping book for the 2020 season. No experience necessary, as this individual will learn as the season progresses. The expectation is for this individual to attend every home game and travel with the team to away games. If interested, please contact Coach Keck about your interest.

Math tutoring is after school on Tuesdays in Mr. Kruse's room. This will start at 3 and go until 4 if needed. Tutoring is open to any math student from any math teacher at Central.

Attention students and staff. In case you have not heard we now have a Central Supply Store and Clothing Closet where you can "shop" for free for items you may be in need of. The supply store carries things like shampoo, shower gel, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, contact solution, and other hygiene products. The supply store also has snacks you can eat at school like chips, crackers, granola bars, fruit snacks or items you can take home like microwavable mac and cheese, cup of noodles, soups, and other items. New items are coming in all the time. The clothing closet is full of items of all sizes for both guys and girls. A variety of jeans, sweatpants, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, and sweatshirts are available as well as coats and shoes. Check out the flyers around school or contact Mrs. Benhoff or Mrs. Boruff.

Students, the school motto at Central Community High School is Imagine Greatness. This means that we want for students to think about the massive amount of potential they have to make a positive difference in the world. We also want to create the culture in our classrooms and programs that inspire students to take the actions necessary to achieve that greatness. One key step in this process is bringing Positive Energy to school every day. We would also like to add a positive quote of the week every Monday to the announcements. These quotes will be submitted by students and the student whose quote is selected for the week will get a "front of the line" lunch pass for the whole week. All positive quotes can be sent directly to Dr. Foutch's email at dfoutch@centralcougars.org
