Any student who would like to add or drop a second semester course needs to sign up on one of the clipboards in the office. Your counselor will call you to the office to discuss your options. Yearlong courses cannot be dropped or moved at this time. The deadline for any second semester changes is Thursday, January 28th by 3:00.

There is a brief meeting for all girls’ basketball players today in the main gymnasium following the conclusion of 7th period.

All boys’ basketball players must check the google classroom for information pertaining to open gyms starting next week here at Central High School. It is very important for all players to check the classroom prior to the start of school next Monday, January 25th.

Spanish Club members- be sure to check google classroom for information about our next activity on Tuesday, January 26th. The sign-up sheet is posted on Sra. Rueter's board outside her classroom.

Readers, don't forget about the Lincoln Book Award list in the library. Remember, if you read 4 or more books from the list by March 15, you can attend a pizza party in the library and vote for your favorite book. Simply find the Google form on the library's website and fill it out for every book you read. This list is a great place to choose a book if you are looking for recommendations!

Seniors, please turn in your senior picture for the yearbook by February 1, 2021 in the superintendent’s office. If you do not turn in a senior picture, we will use your student ID picture.

Attention Senior and Senior Parents: ISAC is holding multiple state-wide, virtual, financial aid application workshops (i.e., FAFSA, Alternative App) for seniors and their parents.

These families will move at their own pace to finish their FAFSA or Alternative App. Here are the upcoming virtual workshops: January 6, 2021, Wed. at 6 - 8:00 PM; January 12, 2021, Tues. at 6 - 8:00 PM; January 16, 2021, Sat. at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM; January 21, 2021, Thurs. at 6 - 8:00 PM; January 27, 2021, Wed. at 6 - 8:00 PM. Visit https://studentportal.isac.org/events to register for any of the events listed above along with finding a pdf on the information needed before starting your application. Central's rep will be present for January 12's FAAW. ISACorp members from all over the state will also be present throughout each event to assist the audience including what to expect, giving tips and techniques, and answering questions.

Seniors, make sure you check out the January Scholarship list that is posted in the Class of 2021 google classroom and is also posted on the school's website. This month's list has several of the Committee to Support Central Scholarships listed.

The girls’ basketball program is raffling off a pair of Apple Airpod Pros with a wireless rechargeable charging case. Raffle tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. Please see a member of the girls’ basketball team if you are interested in buying a ticket. The drawing will take place on March 1st.

Students: Need an extra hoodie, sweater or jacket for the cooler weather? Come shop the Central Supply Store fall/winter clothing giveaway! There are lots of new and gently used items to choose from, so please stop by the stage to check out what’s there. The Clothing Store is open to all students, and is a great way to stock up on a few extra items to keep you warm through the coming months. The stage is open to shoppers each day from 1:00-1:30, or you may e-mail Mrs. Koerkenmeier at mkoerkenmeier@centralcougars.org to schedule an individual time to shop.

The 2020 yearbooks are in. Please stop by the Superintendent’s office to pick them up.

Are you planning on attending college after high school and wanting to get some general education courses completed at a fraction of the cost at Kaskaskia College? Junior and senior students can take select courses through KC's Foundation After School program in which you will only be responsible for paying for the textbooks and lab fees. Tuition, and fees are waived. Students at all grade levels have access to the Jump Start program in which you can take a recommended college course at half the cost of tuition. Registration for KC's Spring semester starts on October 26th. Please see Miss Lohman or Mrs. Jones if you have any questions or would like registration paperwork.

Reminders to all students who need to attend a class remotely:
1) Students need to be on the Google Meet or Go Guardian video conference at the start of each class. If students join late, it is extremely difficult for teachers to take accurate attendance. Also, if students do not have an excuse for the tardy, then consequences will be issued similar to those for being late to in-person class.
2) When attending classes remotely, students must use their centralcougars.org Google account. If you login with another account then you will be asked to leave the meeting and rejoin with the correct account. Again, if this becomes a common occurrence for an individual student, then disciplinary action may be taken.
Juniors and Seniors - a few reminders for before school
We appreciate you waiting in your vehicles until 7:55; however, please make sure you are prepared to walk in the building and proceed straight to 1st hour. This might require you to pack your backpack the day before in preparation for 1st hour. If you do not enter the building until close to 8 am and still have to access your locker, you will be tardy to class.
