Third Graders - 72 Website Designers!

Our third graders are super talented!  After researching facts about the seven continents,  students learned how to make Google sites, including creating the site, choosing a theme, formatting text, adding video and games.

These sites will be used to teach the second graders about continents during their Social Studies unit!

Please click below to be taken to all of the student created websites - amazing work!

Read to Care! CSS - Episode 15

In the Read of Care program, students read to get sponsors.  When they read a set amount, the sponsor donates a care bag, which is then donated to a homeless shelter.  The "Share to Care" book swap gave students a chance to add to their collection!  Learn about it all in our Center School Sightings Episode!  

Just after week one, students have read enough to donate 40 child care bags, 40 male care bags, 55 female care bags and 205 dental care bags!!  Keep reading Center students - you have until Friday, February 26th to read and get as many care bags as you can!

Special thank you to Donna Hutton, Valerie Fritz, Karen Rafferty and Lynne Elfeky for their hard work to bring this wonderful opportunity to Center School!!

First Grade Book Talks - WOW!!

In their study of the non-fiction genre, first graders made book talk commercials about a book they had read and enjoyed.  The time and effort they put into writing their scripts and practicing their lines was tremendous.  A special thank you to Mrs. Bombardier, Mrs. Kadis, and Mrs. Salvatore for all the work they did on this project in class!  Same to the first grade parents for their support at home!
This project was a complete team effort!!
