NETA or the Nebraska Educational Technology Association is an organization of over 5,000 members who share an interest in using technology in the educational process. Every spring, NETA holds contests for all students in Nebraska to show off their abilities in using technology to learn. For the fifth year in a row, Centura Elementary had winners in these contests. This year’s four winning entries were:
The third-place winner in the 3-5 Video Contest was Mason Janda for his “Wonder Unit” project.
The third-place winner in the PK-2 Digital Images Contest was Miyah Lemburg for her “Life of Lincoln” project.
The second-place winner in the PK-2 Video Contest was Miyah Lemburg for her “My Christmas” project.

On May 11th the elementary students of Centura Public Schools were able to participate in a staycation. With the help of creative teacher planning, donations and the use of Harder’s property, students were able to experience a day outside in nature. Some of the activities included a nature walk, tree ring discovery, fishing, making smores, animal tracks, creating bird feeders, insect identification, as well as bubbles and sidewalk chalk. Some of our students even caught their first fish or enjoyed their first smore. Students and teachers alike enjoyed a fun filled day of learning and exploring.
