  • K-12 Holiday Christmas Concert

    Dear Faculty, Staff, Parents & Students, 

    As the temperature begins to get colder outside we realize in a few short weeks, the holiday season will be upon us.  In the Central Cass Music Department, beginning preparations for holiday concerts began nearly 6 months ago.  In June, the music department met with a number of administrative members to plan out concerts for the year.  We knew going into the meeting that we would all have to “tighten our belt” with regards to concerts knowing that something better will be on the horizon.  

    Certain concerts were eliminated this year as time and space would not allow for it.  For other concerts, we had to get creative…  Such was the case with this year’s Holiday Christmas Concert.  In the past, classes and schedules would be shuffled around to allow the elementary students the opportunity to occupy the South Gym for the week for rehearsals and programs.  In the high school, we had a separate concert in the weeks before or after the elementary concert.  

    With the elimination of the South Gym and amidst the Boys and Girls Basketball seasons (elementary, middle school and high school), the luxury of time and space were no longer an option.  Thus, the idea of a K-12 Holiday Christmas Concert came about.  

    While we understand that a weekend concert is not ideal, time and space issues became a significant factor.  The date of the concert was set for Sunday December 17th.   This date was chosen for a number of reasons.  First, by having the concert on a Sunday afternoon, we hope to avoid significant disruptions from both an athletic perspective as well as a classroom perspective, as the gym is also used daily for PE class by both the middle school as well as the high school.  Second, we hope to allow janitorial and music staff adequate time for set up and tear down.  (This scenario will only affect two days of classroom instruction and athletic practice as opposed to one week).  Finally, while the number of parking spaces we have is growing, it still may not be enough to accommodate a concert of this magnitude.  With that being said, an afternoon concert would hopefully help with regards to safety, avoiding potential dark and icy roads.

    The title of this year’s concert, “On a Silent Night…” will feature both sacred and secular Holiday Christmas music.  The concert will take place on December 17th in the Central Cass North Gymnasium.  Grades K-1 will have their concert at 2 PM.  Grades 2-12 will have their concert at 4 PM.  The second concert should last approximately 1 ½ hours and will feature students in both band and choir.  

    We ask that all students in Grades 2-8 report to their home rooms at 3:30 for roll call. 

    The concert attire for the students is as follows:

    • MS/HS Ladies:  Dress Pants/Skirt (fingertip length) or dress (any color), plain top (any color), dress shoes, preferably flats
    • MS/HS Gentlemen:  Dress Pants (any color), Button-down Shirt (any color), Tie, Dark Socks & Dress Shoes
    • Elementary students: Nice holiday dresses, pants etc.

     If your child doesn’t own any of the above-mentioned items please contact your teacher to help procuring these items for you.

    As we look to the future of Central Cass, the new additions will be a welcome blessing allowing us the time, space and flexibility to serve our students and our community.  Until that time, we can only ask for your continued support as we endure these “growing pains” with the hope of something better on the horizon.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.  Thanks!

  • 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.

  • 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.
