  • Building Update May

    Dear Parents, Staff and Community Members,

    As our school year comes to a close, the academic schedules and extracurricular activities over the next three weeks will be very busy. In addition, we are amidst major construction as we wrap up the building project.

    The athletic complex project is underway and will involve large equipment and major work.  We remind you that the entire football field area is “off limits" and nobody should be inside the fenced-in areas.  Students and adults should only be in the baseball areas when a formal practice is being held or games are being played as supervision will only be on site at those times.  The softball field will only be used for school games and practices until May 31 and are not available for travel teams and the general public.  Large truck traffic will be moving in and out on the north end of the site much of the day but will cease for Central Cass practices and games.

    As nice weather has now blessed us, many students are now walking to school or riding bikes in large numbers.  Again, we would ask that you remind your child to be cognizant of the construction site and large volumes of traffic and big equipment that is operating each day so as to assure safety for all.

    Due to the construction project taking over most of the building this summer, the District Office will be closed to the public.  Office hours this summer will be by appointment only.  If you wish to make an appointment, please contact Nancy Nelson at nancy.nelson@k12.nd.us or 701.799.4213 (OR) Morgan Forness at morgan.forness@k12.nd.us or 701.866.2434.

    Important dates to remember:

    • May 27 – Graduation
      • 1:30 pm in the N. Gym
    • May 29 – 30 & June 5 – 7 Drivers Education Class
      • Class will be held in Room 211
      • Students should enter in Door 12
    • May 29 – July 25 Gr. 9-12 Summer Weights Class
      • Class will be held Monday-Thursday in the current (Bus Barn) Weight Room
      • Students may use the Staff parking lot

    The building project is progressing well and we are excited that in a few short months we will bring this major project to conclusion.  I am excited for the end result and what that means for our students and community.

    Thanks again for your attention to these details and construction realities.  Let’s all do what we can to stay safe as we finish out the year!

    Sincerely,  Morgan Forness, Superintendent

  • Central Cass Orchard

    Central Cass School District was recently awarded an Orchard Grant through the North Dakota Department of Agriculture. When mature the orchard will be used for as part of the school food service program and as an outdoor educational learning site. Other benefits will include a windbreak for a portion the north side property of the school and as a pollinator area. The Cass County Soil Conservation helped plan which species of trees and shrubs were selected based on their hardiness and fruit production, along with the soil type in our region. The trees and shrubs planted are Nan King Cherry, Schubert Chokecherry, Black Chokecherry, Golden Currant, Juneberry, Haskaps, American Plum, Prairie Yellow Apple, and Dolgo Crabapple. Students from Central Cass fifth grade through eighth along with a couple of volunteers from Fargo helped plant the 120 trees and shrubs. The Orchard is located west of the new softball field.

  • Long Walk to Water Project

    The 7th graders read the book Long Walk to Water. They learned about the water crisis in South Sudan through the story of Salva and Nya. After they read the book the students were told that the school was in a water crisis and how would they help out. They said they would go to the Reservoir to get water to bring back to the school. They each carried two empty milk jugs to be filled with water at the res. Once filled we walked back to the school. The distance is just a little over a mile. Very short compared how many miles Nya walks each day.

  • Million Word Club

    Mrs. Stansbery, Library Media Specialist, along with classroom teachers in grades 3-5, created the Million Word Club. When students read 1/2 million or reached the goal of one million words, they would get their picture up on the wall and earn a certificate. The following students met the 1/2 million, million, 2 million and 4 million word clubs! A couple students were not pictured due to being absent, but that's a lot of kids! Great job everyone!
