Thanks to Central families, the PTA will receive a check for $455.40 for this year's first submission of Box Tops for Education. Each clipped Box Top is worth 10 cents for our school, so please keep clipping and submitting Box Tops! Students may bring baggies or envelopes of Box Tops to school at any time; pasting on sheets is not necessary. Please label baggies or envelopes with the student's name, teacher and House Color, so that the PTA can track submissions and reward top-collecting classes and House Colors.

16 October 2017

Our annual walkathon, that was held on October 31, helps fund many programs.  Such as:

  • Educational field trips to Boxerwood
  • Educational assemblies, including The Wildlife Center of Virginia
  • In-school theatrical performances
  • House Color T-shirts for every student
  • Classroom materials and equipment
  • Teacher appreciation meals and treats
  • Central Clothes Closet
  • Family fun and movie nights
  • Fall Festival and Spring Picnic
  • Valentine’s Day classroom parties (K-2) and social (4-5)
  • Campus beautification (new project for 2017-18!)


In past years, the Walkathon has been successful due to the support from Central families, friends and staff, as well as area businesses.  Students don’t need to sell anything, but simply ask family and friends for donations.  Every donation – no matter the amount – helps!
