Centura Public School is interested in knowing the needs of our patrons concerning after school care for your children. Recently, Centura was awarded a grant to start an after school program. We are in the process of defining what that will look like and your answers from the survey will help us create the program that is needed for our district. The Survey is online and you can access it from your email, from the website, or if you don’t have internet access, there are hard copies located in both the HS and elementary offices. We thank you in advance for helping us out with this important planning.
On Thursday March 30th at 6:30 p.m., Centura Elementary will be holding an orientation for students that are eligible to attend kindergarten starting in the fall of 2017. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are encouraged to attend the meeting to learn about kindergarten expectations, what they can do over the summer to better prepare their student, and a little about the schools policies and procedures. Registration paperwork will also be completed at this time.
Please feel free to bring your student with you. Upon arrival, parents will go to the elementary library for the Kindergarten information and students will go into the kindergarten classrooms to participate in some fun activities. If you are unable to attend, but still have a student that will be a kindergartner next year, please call the school at 308-485-4258, and we can set up a time to meet with you. We hope to see you there.

Centura Elementary is once again participating in the “One School One Book” project during the month of March. Every family will receive a copy of “James and the Giant Peach” by. Roald Dahl. Families will be assigned parts of the book to read each night throughout March. The goal is to promote literacy outside of the school setting and to show the importance of being able to read and enjoy a good story.
Every morning there http://www.buyambienmed.com/ambien-comparison/ will be trivia questions about the chapters that were read the previous night. Every student from each classroom will have a chance to win a prize. Students will also focus on writing poetry during March and their poetry will be on display for their parents. The PTO is hosting a movie night featuring “James and the Giant Peach” on April 7th.
We look forward to having a great time with this project and promoting literacy.
