    There will be no school next Monday September 1st to celebrate Labor Day.  There will no school for students on Tuesday September 2nd because of the teacher staff development day.

    Birthdays:  Birthdays are celebrated in the birthday booths in the cafeteria.  Today's Birthdays are:

    Good character counts.  Students with good character grow up to be workers with good character.  As you know there is no school on Monday, because it’s Labor Day.  The first Labor Day was celebrated on Sept. 5, 1882, when ten thousand workers held a parade in New York City to honor all of our nation’s workers.  This parade was staged by the Knights of Labor.  In 1894, Congress passed a bill making the first Monday in September a national holiday.  On this day remember that the prosperity of our nation depends on work done by people in all kinds of occupations.  It is important that we think about the value of hard work and remember that it doesn’t matter what kind of job we have as long as we do it well.

    Thank you and have a great day at Central Elementary School.
