  • Owl Pellets

    After spending two weeks learning about food chains, Mrs. Johnson's 5th grade students were able to dissect owl pellets. For those that are unaware of what an owl pellet is, it is owl vomit. Typically when owls eat, they end up regurgitating the remains of it 18-20 hours later. This means that the students were able to find skulls, jaw bones, and other bones of small rodents and birds. Some students got lucky and were able to find two or three different animal skulls in their one owl pellet! Following the dissection of the owl pellets, the students will be reflecting on the owl's place in the food chain and how the energy (food) that the owl ate was once from the sun. The students all agreed it was equally gross as it was fun!

  • Family STEM Night

    From toothpaste dispensing machines to thrilling student engineered rollercoasters, Central Cass hosted an interactive Family STEM night on Tuesday, September 12th! STEM refers to the combination of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The night was developed through a collaborative effort on the part of the teachers that attended STEM training last spring and summer at VCSU and the VCSU STEM Learning Center. The team consisting of Mary Kensok, Michelle Nelson, Tanya Robinson, Lindsey Johnson, Karren Bartholomay, Marlen Haugen, Jeremy Luttio, Laura Ebertowski, Liz Kuelbs, and Shelly Sinner worked together to showcase key components of STEM learning through arranging a wide variety of highly engaging and interactive STEM challenges. The evening was open to the public and free of charge. Over 60 students and their families took advantage of the extremely fun STEM night.

  • Kindergarten Pillow Day

    Click the heading for MORE pictures! This Friday the kindergarten once again invited family members into the classrooms to help sew pillows. The students each brought a square piece of fabric as part of their school supply list. The school provided them with the second piece that the students drew on with fabric markers. The two pieces were sewn together by volunteers. The kindergarteners along with their helpers stuffed the pillows and hand sewed them closed. The keepsakes will be used for quite time in the classroom, along with a cushion to use for reading during Daily Five and other activities. Thank you to all the family who were able to help during this special day in the kindergarten classrooms.

  • Stem Center Renderings

    Architects, STEM Consultants, administration and teachers have been busy collaborating ideas on what our new STEM center will look like at Central Cass. The state of the art design will encompass Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through fun, hands-on experiences where real learning occurs. Click the header for a link to look at a rendering of what our STEM center has the potential to look like. Note; furniture and details will change, but the walls and floor plan will likely stay the same with minor tweaking. To move the screen to look around, click and drag the screen. Pictured is Mr. Forness looking through 3D Binoculars at the rendering presented by Zerr Berg Architects. We have several sets of the binoculars in the main office if you want to see it for yourself in 3D.
