  • Site Safety Message

    Dear Central Cass patrons and community members,

    As you can clearly see there is much activity with all the construction taking place on the north side of town.  While much of it is related to the school project there are other projects (DOT 5th St. Project, Casselton Farms Housing Project and Steve Link’s Housing Development) taking place simultaneously.  There will be a tremendous amount of truck traffic and heavy equipment work taking place this summer.  

    That said, summer office hours are 7:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Monday – Thursday.  We will also have many activities taking place on school grounds; Driver’s Ed Class, Summer Weights and Parks and Rec Baseball practices.

    Krause Anderson, our Construction Manager at Risk (CMaR) has asked us to communicate the need to be cognizant of safety issues. Please remind your children of the following:

    • Be aware of truck and heavy equipment traffic.  
    • Be careful while crossing streets, walking or driving through the parking lot.  Please follow signage.  
    • Access the Baseball Field or North Parking lot by the athletic fields from the SE corner entrance point (by the bus barn wash bay).   A lane of traffic will be kept open to access the back parking area or door #12.
    • Public entry to the building should only be Door #1 or #12 for weight classes.  
    • Do not enter construction areas (inside or outside) without permission or hardhat.
    • Stay out of fenced in or blocked off construction sites.  
    • No access to the baseball field area from the west side of the school beginning June 5th until further notice, as construction on the new elementary will begin.  

    We recognize this project is a massive undertaking and provides short-term inconveniences and challenges, but the end result will be a wonderful addition to the school facilities and park board programming.   Again, SAFTEY is of the utmost concern, and we would appreciate your assistance in assuring that rules are followed and the project can move forward without incident.

Students First, Community Always, Excellence Forever

  • Monsanto Grant Winners

    Mistie Holland, Technology Integrationist and Dana Stansbery, Library and Media Specialist wrote and submitted the grant for Central Cass and plan to purchase four filled makerspace stations with the grant dollars. The focus will be to add agriculture exploration to the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Center, along with supplies needed for the centers to properly function. Holland states, “The makerspaces will include moveable carts that are filled with materials that allow students to become inquiry based learners and meet the needs of our students’ desire to be challenged and empowered through project-based learning enhancing STEM education at Central Cass.” “Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. STEM related careers, specifically agricultural related, are some of the fastest growing and highest paid jobs of the 21st century. “We’re happy to support Central Cass with this Monsanto Fund grant.” Stated the leadership at Monsanto’s Research Center in Glyndon MN -Keith Jackson and John Gulleson.

  • 6th Grade Class Breakfast

    Throughout the 6th grade year each classroom hosts their own class breakfast on the last Friday of each month. It serves several purposes but team building and developing interpersonal skills are the key concepts behind the activity. The last class breakfast of the year is a very special day for our 6th graders. Students are asked to think about a person that has made a difference in their lives some how. They then personally invite that special guest to the last class breakfast. Each of the students practice their speaking and listening skills by introducing their special guest and telling the room full of people why this person is so important to them. It is a wonderful experience for everyone involved!

  • 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.
