Dear Central Families,


Our 2017-18 school year has gotten off to a great start, thanks to the dedicated, talented staff at Central and an amazing team of PTA volunteers!


Since the beginning of the school year, the PTA...

  • Provided a back-to-school breakfast for Central teachers and staff.
  • Purchased and distributed “House Color” T-shirts for every student.
  • Held two "Beautification" campus clean-up days.
  • Arranged successful "Central Family Nights" at the Pink Cadillac Diner and Country Cookin, which raised money for the PTA.
  • Hosted our first  “Movie under the Stars” with pizza, popcorn, treats and the movie “Sing.”
  • Provided an educational assembly at school from The Wildlife Center of Virginia, so students could learn about animal habitats and see animals up close -- including a box turtle, opossum and barred owl.

We are looking forward to the annual walkathon and fall festival on October 31, and the PTA Reflections Contest in November.


Thank you for all you do to help the Central PTA, including:

  • Becoming a PTA member – we’re just 29 members away from our goal of 200!
  • Collecting Box Tops for Education
  • Attending Central family nights
  • Donating clothes to the Central Clothes Closet
  • Helping when you can at PTA events
  • Purchasing “Central Bears” spirit merchandise
  • Collecting walkathon donations

We appreciate the opportunity to lead our school’s PTA, as well as the family support that helps make Central such an outstanding school.  If you have PTA questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact any one of us.
