  • Central Cass receives $150,000 gift from Glenn and Melissa Grommesh!

    Morgan Forness, Supt. of Central Cass announces that a generous gift in the amount of $150,000 has been pledged to the school. The gift from Glenn and Melissa Grommesh has been designated for the building and completion of a new competitive synthetic 8 lane track to further enhance the "state-of-the-art" athletics complex that is being updated. Forness states: "We continue to be amazed with the generosity of members of the community as they invest in our school and the youth in the city. This gift will tie in nicely with the $1.0 M gift received previously from Gary Tharaldson, as well as the $250,000 gift from the Central Cass Booster Club, towards the athletics complex that serves the school and community.”


    The Grommesh family is well known in the Casselton area with multiple generations attending school there and farming in the area. Glenn and Melissa currently have three daughters who have excelled in track and field and state it is their desire to invest into the school’s facilities to serve the entire community for years to come. Glenn states, “Track and field has been a big part of our lives for a number of years and we are proud to help sponsor a project like this and give back to this community. Casselton is growing and we are excited to see what the future holds.”  


    Central Cass appreciates their support!

  • Amanda's Hope

    Middle School Student Council is sponsoring a drive for Amanda's Hope Chest. Amanda's Hope Chest started 10 years ago after Amanda was tragically killed in a car accident. Amanda's one wish was to give all foster kids in Cass county a Christmas gift. Since then the organization has grown and they they now give gifts to many Cass county organizations. Bobbie Mikulecky is the founder of the organization and she spoke to whole middle school about the program. Central Cass Middle School has set a goal of collecting 75 items. This years focus is baby items, but they always need toys, clothing, sock, underwear, or any gift you feel would bring a child joy. Gifts must be new and unwrapped when you bring them to the school. Drop off location is outside Mrs. Kapaun's room.

  • Juniors recreate Walt Whitman Poems

    Mrs. Young's junior class has been studying Walt Whitman. As a final project, they chose a Whitman poem and turned it into a children's book. They were given an elementary grade level, so they knew how to adjust and create their book to fit the learning of a younger audience. It was exciting to watch them take so much ownership of these books because they knew they had a live audience with this project.
