February was a busy month with Centennial events and fundraising for Telemiracle.

On Feb. 26 a special Centennial Talent Show celebrated the school’s past and present. As well as student performers, the show featured some alumni performers and special guests. Many thanks to all those who performed and supported this event. A silent auction, raffle table and 50/50 draw at the talent show raised more than $2,000 to bring the total cheque to present at Telemiracle to $5,602.79. However, with some last minute donations they actually presented $7.210.44. 
To celebrate the Winter Olympics Central School had its own mini Olympics on Feb. 13. Students had fun participating in a variety of outdoor activities including curling, bobsleigh and luge.
Centennial News
Feb. 5-7 students took part in an exciting project with singer/songwriter Jeffery Straker (who recently won the International category at the prestigious Vina Del Mar International Song Festival in Chile). All grades contributed with ideas and inspirations for the song, a group of Grade 5 students wrote the song and then it was recorded with the whole school singing.
The finished song is a wonderful reflection of the school past and present 100 and will be released as a download in the near future.
On March 10 Swift Current artist and Central School alumni Jean Cyca will work with Grade 4 students teaching them about pastel crayons, the same medium with which she created Central School’s Centennial Portrait.
