  • 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!

  • Variety Show 2017

    The Central Cass Variety Show 2017 featured students performing music from the pop, rock and country genre, showcasing their talents in a different type setting from the typical band and choir concert. The show also features the Jazz Ensemble and Swing Choir. The group Tigirlily has gained statewide recognition and has begun to gain national recognition as well. Says Dasovick, director of instrumental music at Central Cass, “We knew that they were coming to Central Cass as part of a statewide tour to promote seat belt safety and thought it would be a cool idea to have them not only perform on the Variety Show but to perform with the students. We pitched the idea to them and we were thrilled that they agreed”. Click the header for pictures from the show!

  • 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.
