Central School C.A.K.E. Update

Posted Dec 3, 2008 | Category: Everything Else

Red & White WristbandAs you know, the theme this year for Central students is C.A.K.E., which stands for Courteous And Kind to Everyone. The C.A.K.E. goal for December is to help someone in need. This holiday season, all students are encouraged to do something helpful to earn $3.00. For example, students may choose to help by shoveling a driveway, cleaning around the house, etc. Students who earn $3.00 and bring it to school will receive a red/white C.A.K.E. bracelet to commemorate the fact that they helped someone during this holiday season. Money collected will then be donated to the KidsCare Project. All money is due by December 19th. Look for a letter regarding this project to be coming home soon. This letter will be in the form of a “bracelet memo” — students will actually be wearing the letter as a bracelet!

Central School is now on the lookout for students who are demonstrating courteous and kind behavior. Students and teachers may nominate individuals who demonstrate these positive behaviors. Each day, Dr. Limperis will randomly draw one of the C.A.K.E. nominations and read it aloud on the morning announcements. The student who was recognized will then be rewarded with a commemorative C.A.K.E. pin. When you see your child wearing on of these pins, you’ll know that he/she was caught demonstrating exceptional behaviors!
