Today is a Purple Day

Tomorrow will be a Gold Day

We will be opening our doors at Central Middle School at 7:30 am. Students who elect to come between 7:30 and 7:50 will be required to go to the cafeteria and are asked to be seated quietly and remain in the cafeteria until 7:50 am.  At that time, they may use the gym or cafeteria. Breakfast will also be served starting at 7:30 am.


Musical- Do you like to Act? Do you like to Sing? Then doing a musical is just for you! The Central/West musical auditions will take place on January 3rd and 4th at Central Middle School and January 7th and 8th at West Middle School. Students can try out at any location. Auditions will consist of students singing a song of their choice and doing a reading. The reading will be given to students the night of the auditions. Auditions are open to any 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade student. A student only needs to come to one of the nights to audition. Audition times will be posted on Tuesday by the Choir Rooms. Auditions will last approximately 10-15 minutes. You must sign up for an audition time to guarantee an audition spot. Auditions will be after school. More information will be coming soon!
