Welcome to our weekly newsletter, The “Central Scoop”! 

Some of our weekly events, reminders, and updates are as follows:

**Bike to School Week: We had a very successful week with many students participating in a heart healthy way of getting to school! We had over 323 students participating in some way as they walked, biked, or rolled to school. Thanks to the Athletic Leadership team for their work on this event, and to the parents who generously gave their time to help hand out stickers, capture photos and encourage our students! 

**Jump Rope for Heart: We had to reschedule the event from yesterday due to the extreme humidity. We have now scheduled it for Friday, June 8th during periods 1 and 2 (approx. start at 9:15). Please make sure to send your child with extra water to stay hydrated, and (if possible) their own skipping rope. If you have donation envelopes at home, would you please ensure that they are returned by Thursday, June 7th for pickup by the Heart and Stroke foundation. We thank you for your support!

**Talent Show: Tryouts have been completed, and the acts have been chosen and posted. Congratulations to all of our performers! Our talent show will take place on Wednesday, June 27th from 9:00-10:25 a.m. Parents of performers are welcome to join us in the gym, starting at 8:45 a.m. We are looking forward to being entertained!

**Appreciation Breakfast: A huge thank you to the parents (and students) who so kindly treated us to a delicious staff appreciation breakfast on our PD day. It was a great way to start the day, and we really appreciate the support!

**Lunch Program: We sent home a separate email earlier this week indicating the online “LunchBox” program that we are trying out for the month of June. This is in addition to our School Council run lunch day, which continues to be run on Fridays. Please refer to that email for ordering details. Again, this is optional, and not meant to replace the current food days. 

**Crash Rhythm: “Crash Rhythm” is coming to Central! Crash is a program presented by Hilary Whiskin. Each class from grade 1-6 will have one period with the presenter. She will use drums to inspire students and lead them through conduction, improvising, playing in an ensemble, songwriting and jamming. Crash Rhythm will be at Central June 4 and 6. We thank the Parent Council for allowing us to use funds from the Bake Sale to pay for this exciting opportunity. 

**Communication: Did you know we are on Twitter? Follow us @CPS_Chatter (see our web page for the link). We also encourage you to download the new HDSB app to your phone. It's a great way to stay connected to the school and board, gives School Cash Online and Absence Reporting access. and more! Look for "Halton District School Board" in the app store!

**Visitors to the School: Please remember that all visitors must report to the office upon entry to let us know that you’re here. In order to ensure the safety of our students, we respectfully ask all visitors to follow this process. 

**School Council Meeting: Our next School Council meeting is on Tues. June 5th at 6:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
