We hope that all students participate each month, it will help students’ reading abilities and they get to have fun. Parents, read to your children and watch them read and ask questions about what they are reading.
Elementary parents, your child will be bringing home a booklet to be filled out with addresses of people you know. Each completed booklet will earn $5.50 for the elementary. All you have to do is fill out each booklet and have your child bring it back to school. There is no selling of any products. Each coupon filled out will be mailed to the address and those that receive it will have an option to buy magazines, but are not required to if they choose not to. This is not mandatory, but each booklet will help raise money for extra fun things students will do at school this year. Students that bring back their booklets will get a small prize and be entered to win a Minnion robot. Thank you for your help.
The Centura football team suffered their first loss of the season to Hershey by a score of 14-18. The Centurions led the entire game until the last 42 seconds, when Hershey dropped back to pass on 4th and 9 and hit their receiver in the end zone.
This was a tough loss for the Centurions, but they battled very hard against a top 10 opponent.
The Centurions were led by Kaleb Johnson who ran for a team high 128 yards. Willy Packer caught two touchdown passes from Jose Guzman. The second touchdown put Centura up 14-6 in the 4th quarter, but that score would not hold up in the end.
