Spring is here and another school year is �ying by very quickly! When we
think of spring, we think of new growth and it’s a wonderful time of year
to celebrate the academic growth and awesome accomplishments of
our Central students!
In our second year as a Leader in Me school, our students and staff have continued to synergize their
efforts in creating a positive school culture that celebrates the strengths and abilities of all students.
We’re excited to be hosting another FAMILY NIGHT on Friday, May 17th from 5:30pm-7:30pm and our
Tiger Cubs are eager to share what they have been learning about personal initiative and goal setting
to plan their academic success.

Central's Collection for Life Centers
We wanted to share the results of the Central collection for Life Centers. Here is a nice message from
the Life Centers representative. "Ms. Fields took the picture of some members of Student Council (plus
Selah!) helping to load the supplies. Then the second picture is everything collected – wow! Central
students did such a great job! Because of their generosity, we are well-stocked on bottles, paci�ers,
teethers, burp cloths, washcloths, onesies, receiving blankets, books, and all kinds of other items for
our baby bundles! Thank you to Central Families for helping our organization to continue to serve
families with babies in Boone County!"

Some Important Reminders
Snow Make-Up Days
School will now be in session on Friday, May 24, 2019.
If your child receives a notice about an overdue library book, please help
him or her search for the book(s). If you have any questions or concerns
about a missing book, please email Mrs. Moyer directly at
[email protected] or send the notice back to school with a note
from you. Mistakes do happen and sometimes books get reshelved before check-in or misplaced here
Just a quick reminder that you must have a background check on �le to join your student in the school
or to travel on any �eld trips. Background checks must be completed each year. If you are not sure if
you have one on �le and you have a school activity coming up, please call the Central o�ce at 765-
482-2000 to ensure you have one on �le for this year.
Lost and Found
With the end of the year right around the corner it is the perfect time to have your student check the

5th Grade Immunization Clinic
This is a reminder that the Boone County Health Department will be at Central Elementary to provide a
free Vaccine Clinic on Wednesday, May 15, 2019. This clinic is free for students without insurance
coverage or for those that have insurance that does not cover vaccines. If you would like your student
to receive their immunizations here at school, please sign and return the consent form that was
attached to the parent e-mail sent earlier today. The Tdap, MCV 4, and Hep A are required
immunizations. The HPV is recommended. If you choose to have these immunizations done with your
health care provider, you will need to do so before your student enters 6th grade on August 12. Failure
to be compliant for the 2019-2020 school year will result in your student’s exclusion from school.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Holly Bland at [email protected] or (765) 482-2000
