The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. If your household is eligible, you can receive: >Up to a $50/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals >A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50) Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. The FCC has announced that consumers can begin applying for and enrolling in the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program on May 12, 2021. The program will end when the fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.

Last year, we had a vision of adding a Kinder-Garden Sensory Garden to our playground. Unfortunately, when the pandemic hit, those plans were halted. Although this year has been different and many things have been abnormal for our kindergarten students, beautiful things have come out of the uncertainty! 💚 We are so proud of how hard all of our kindergartners have worked to transform our grounds. We have spread 5 yards of top soil, 5 yards of mulch, raked up countless bags of leaves, and planted seeds in our classroom. Last week, we finally saw it all come together. We have two “taste” beds with tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, green beans, and sweet banana peppers. We have a “smell” bed with lavender, mint, basil, thyme, and a few other smells. Our “touch” bed, has plants with so many cool textures. Finally, our “see” bed is a garden that not only has beautiful flowers, but they also attract butterflies! 🪴 🦋 🌸 We will be adding more pieces over the next couple of weeks, but we are so excited to present our Kinder-Garden to the school community, and to watch it bloom in the weeks to come. Please stop by and check out our kiddos' hard work and enjoy watching the garden grow throughout the spring and summer! -Central K Team

Good Afternoon Central Families, Important Reminder: Students will not report to school tomorrow, April 12. Please look for further communication from the school district on Monday.
Third grade students have been learning about Earth's water, including the impacts of littering and pollution. They spent time cleaning up around the building and playground, created models to understand water supply, learned about the water cycle by pretending to be a water droplet, and tracked water paths by making a water cycle bracelet. Students also discovered that even though we live on a watery planet, freshwater is limited. They'll soon create a public service announcement about conserving and protecting this precious natural resource!
