Winter Break Reading from M.S.D.

posted Dec 14, 2018, 4:50 AM by Central Library   [ updated Dec 14, 2018, 5:22 AM ]

     The Manchester School District recently released a letter to families regarding Winter Break Reading. Although there is no specific winter break reading challenge assignment for our high school students, the District is encouraging our school community to make time for reading during the winter break as we continue to support the effort to keep our students reading all year long.  As our Superintendent advocates, when one finds he or she has some extra down time, that is the perfect time for picking up a book.

     Furthermore, our school district would like to encourage students to visit the Manchester City Library on Pine Street.  If you haven’t already, please register for a library card, and attend any of the scheduled events at the library during the winter break.

     The Manchester School District thanks you in advance for your support and participation in the Winter Break Reading Challenge. We all hope that you and your family enjoy the holiday break!

Food Pantry

Central's Key Club and Mrs Lariviere, the advisor of the Key Club, have been working diligently to open a food pantry for any students in need here at Central. 

The pantry will be located at Central in our new cafe (way in the back) where the Key Club office is located.

We will be open every Friday after school from 3pm-3:30pm to allow students to stop in to pick up food for the weekend.

Anyone wishing to donate non-perishable food items may do so in Guidance with Mrs. Lariviere. 

Any students who would like to take some food home for themselves, or their families, may pick up what they need from the new food pantry on Fridays after school from 3pm-3:30pm.
