What does being a Central School Student mean to you?

We are looking for a team of dedicated 7th and 8th grade students to help us define the “Spirit of the Spartan” by joining the new Culture Club this year.  The Culture Club members will have the following opportunities.
Promote a culture of kindness and respect in the school
Mentor 5th and 6th grade students in a number of settings
Organize pep rallies and spirit days
Create school awareness for important issues, such as kindness, anti-bullying, mental health, and more

We are excited to have you join us for this new leadership opportunity to set the culture of our school and to help others!

Social Work Services

Social work counseling is offered to students who are struggling with social or emotional issues that may be interfering with academic success. Any Central School student is eligible for social work services. Each of our social workers is assigned two grade levels. The grade level assignments rotate every year so that each student will have access to the same social worker all four years.

Difficulties may include:

- Peer relationship issues
- Family stress (divorce, loss, etc.)
- Motivational problems
- Self-esteem concerns
- Anxiety
- Depression
- Difficulty concentrating
- or any other issues that may be interfering with academic success


The social workers visit each advisory classroom at the beginning of the school year to introduce themselves, or in most cases re-introduce themselves to the students and explain how to access social work services as well as the types of situations that would typically require social work support. Students are encouraged to seek out social work support for additional assistance problem solving or coping with any given situation that is distracting them from their academic responsibilities.


Students may be referred for social work services by:

- Parents
- Teachers
- Principal/Asst. Principal
- Themselves
