Building a Soundproof Model

Sixth graders work collaboratively to use their knowledge of mechanical waves and model-building to invent soundproof boxes. Not only did the students research materials that best absorb sound, but they participated in the iterative design process: Plan, Create, Test, Evaluate and Review. Click here for more photos.

Visit our Lost and Found

We will have items from the Lost and Found on display in front of Young Auditorium. Parents are welcome to browse items after school. We will donate all remaining items before holiday break.

Chess Club Takes First Place

Congratulations to the Central School Chess Club for taking first place in the Kumbaya Chess Tournament. We’d like to extend a special thank you to Mr. Pituc for supporting this opportunity and helping our students to shine.

French Club Enjoys French Fare

Sixth grade students in the Central French Club enjoyed French food at That Little French Guy Café in Highland Park where they enjoyed French food, music and camaraderie . They had the opportunity to tryFrench specialties including Crème Brûlée, Mousse au Chocolat, Quiche Lorraine, Croque-Monsieur - and even ordered their dishes in French. If you would like to join the French Club or participate in future events, please contact Madame Adelard (

Practicing Safety Drills and Protocols

Students and staff at Central School revisit important safety drills at different points throughout the year. Advisors review procedures with students and remind them about steps to take in the event of an emergency. We applaud our students for their cooperation in taking these exercises seriously and recognizing their importance. We also thank Glencoe Public Safety for partnering with us to oversee and support our efforts.


  We are pleased to share that our students are able to use text messaging to reach out for help for themselves or friends at any time of day or night. Text-a-Tip allows students to find anonymous, immediate help if they are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, depression, difficult family situations, bullying, or any of the many challenges they face today. Text-A-Tip is staffed with local counselors provided by LEAD (Linking Efforts Against Drugs), a non-profit organization focused on promoting healthy family relationships and preventing alcohol and drug use and other risky behaviors by youth.
