Central Community High School will hold the Academic Achievement Awards program on Tuesday, May 6th at 7:00 P.M. in the Commons Area.  The event is designed to provide students with recognition for their accomplishments.  It also allows parents and members of the community to witness and share in the celebration of achievement.  A personal letter from the school will invite students (and their parents) who will receive special honors that evening.  However, everyone from the public is invited to attend and share in the celebration of these achievements. 


Special recognitions that will be presented at the event include academic scholarships, certificates for performance on standardized tests, attendance recognitions, and special academic awards.  Special guests from community organizations and surrounding institutions will be invited to present many of the honors.  We anticipate that students will receive many well-deserved accolades for their scholastic performance at Central Community High School.  If you would like to discuss any of the information above, please contact us at 526-4578.




Parents and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey.  As a parent, this is a chance to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.  Reports will be generated for schools if subjects meet the response rate threshold and results will then be included in the state school report card.  Your participation can help us understand the conditions of the school and to help guide improvement.


                The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted online through April 25th.  For more information, visit the school website at www.centralcougars.org and click on the information located on the lower left of the cover page.  It will further explain the survey and give you directions to the 5Essentials Survey site.  If you have any questions regarding the 5Essentials Survey, please contact the school at 526-4578.
