Fun, Fair, Faithful and Firm Staff member of the week


Coach Dan Carlson has been nominated as Centura’s fun, fair, firm and faithful staff member of the week. In the classroom he continually stretches himself to reach each student. An example of this is his use of technology, specifically the Schoology program. As a coach, he encourages each athlete to get better. One student commented that Live Wrestling is difficult, but he knows coach continues to use this drill in practice to make him a stronger wrestler. Mr. Carlson promotes a positive learning environment in and out of the classroom at Centura.

Elementary Character Council Food Drive

The Centura Elementary Character Council is collecting food for the St. Paul food pantry. Collection is taking place right now and will last until Wednesday, December 14th.The goal is 1,000 items, if we can reach our goal we will have a movie and popcorn party for the school.

The St. Paul food pantry helps several towns in the Howard County area including Boelus, Cairo and Dannebrog. If there is one thing we can do this Christmas season, it is to help others in need.

Soup Supper at Centura


The Annual Sophomore Soup Supper is being held during the home basketball games this Saturday from 4:30 to 8:00 (or we run out of soup).  Centura Sophomores are serving chicken noodle soup, chili and a homemade dessert for only $5 (kids under 5 eat free).  Come out, cheer on the basketball teams and have some yummy soup!

PTO Pasta Fundraising

The PTO has asked students to help raise money by selling “Fun Pasta”. The money raised by this will help fund new ipads in the elementary and playground upgrades. There are many different fun pastas that you can buy and sell and all of the money goes straight to helping the elementary. All orders are due Monday, November 28th. Thank you for taking the time to help out Centura Elementary.
