From The Principal’s Desk
Wow! The last month of school and
also the last monthly
newsletter for a few months, where has time gone? What
a year it’s been, some
good things and some not so good things. As the year
winds down, it seems as if
the students and staff are all in survival mode. We all just
want to get through the rest of
The biggest thing we have going on now is the construction. The contractors are full steam ahead working on the new areas of the building. I am very impressed with the companies in charge of the construction. They are moving along very quickly and doing quality work as they go. If you drive by one day and then it is a few days before you go by again, it is amazing how much the work has progressed. They are working on three different areas now, the new classroom portion, the cafeteria and the band/chorus room. These areas will be finished and ready to move into before the next school year starts in August. Shortly after school is out this summer, they will tear down the two story section so it can be rebuilt. This area will not be ready for us until between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is an exciting time at South Central High School. We are planning an open house sometime in early 2018 so the public can come and see the new additions.
As we move into May, it might be
the busiest month of the
school year. Along with normal baseball and softball
games come awards night,
spring concert, semester exams and several other
special events. This is a
busy, busy time of the year. With that said, the last
big event of the year is
always graduation. This year graduation is on the 19th
of May. For
those of you that will be coming to
graduation, parking will be quite crowded. Because of
the construction, we no
longer have a West parking lot. This means that the
parking lots to the South
and East of the school will be full during graduation.
It might be that some of
you need to make your own parking spots for
graduation. If this is the case,
please be respectful of those businesses around the
Thank you for your support of South Central High School and our students during the 2016-2017 school year. Your support is always appreciated by each of us. Until next school year, have a great summer!
