THANK YOU for all of your involvement in our school over the past few weeks!  

 

PTA worked with Pepperoncini’s to have the Science Showcase catered as well as a luncheon for Teacher Appreciation Week.

The Science Showcase in late March, was a huge hit and the chili and cornbread meal from Pepperoncini’s was delicious! Thanks to the PTA for putting that together.

Dear Central Families,

Summer break is fast approaching!  Every year students ask if they can check out library books to read over the summer months.  This year Central Middle School students will be able to borrow up to six (6) books over the summer vacation.  

How will this work?  Any student, seventh or eighth grade, can borrow books.  They will receive a bright red bag to keep the books in.  Students will simply return the books in the fall when they return to school or come in to register.  Eighth grade students can return the books to their new high school librarian and they will be sent on to Central.  If a student is not returning to Central but will be at another Anchorage School District school, they can return them to the school librarian at their new school.  Moving out of state?  Please return your books to the Anchorage Public Library and they can return the books to Central.

However, it is important that both parents and students are aware that they are responsible for all books borrowed from the Central Middle School Library.  If a book is lost (not returned) or damaged, the student is financially responsible for those books. 

I’m excited we can offer this program to students at Central.  Having access to reading materials over the long summer break helps students achieve and stay on track with their school studies.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email at geppert_kerri@asdk12.org or at the school phone number (907)742-5100.  

Thank You,

Kerri Geppert
